Shooting In Florida Not Covered By Stand Your Ground Law

The “stand your ground” law does not let someone pursue and then shoot. Unfortunately, much needed guns laws are being attacked by those who are not educated about them, or those who are using this as their chance, to attack gun rights and self defense. From John Lott:

The “Castle Doctrine” or “stand your ground” law doesn’t let you pursue someone and then shooting them. There is a reasonable person test that the victim felt that they were in danger and that it was necessary to fire the gun in self defense.

What transpired in the case is what the courts are going to have to decide. Hopefully justice prevails.

One Response to Shooting In Florida Not Covered By Stand Your Ground Law

  1. HueMan says:

    New Black Panther leader Mikhail Muhammad announced the $10,000 reward for Zimmerman DEAD or ALIVE during a protest in Sanford Saturday. And when asked whether he was inciting violence, Muhammad replied defiantly: “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”

    How’s the SYG doing now!

    Pursuit is much different than being pummeled while on your back on the ground. Pursuit doesn’t justify an attack. Zimmerman did not disobey a lawful order. A dispatcher is not a “Certified Peace Officer” therefore no lawful order was given.

    If you look like a thug by dress, attire, or mannerisms then you’re a Thug! If I see someone out of place in my AOA, they will be followed and most probably questioned. If they make just one wrong move they will soon be at ambient temperature…i’mjust sayin
