Two quick things: First, ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws don’t need defending. I think they are good and necessary laws. Second, we still don’t know that these laws even apply in the Zimmerman/Martin case. Be that as it may, liberals and activists and the Main Stream Media are trying to paint these [SYG for short] laws as solely the work of Republican law makers. Not true:
Despite liberal protestersâ€™ claims that Floridaâ€™s so-called â€śstand your groundâ€ť gun law demonstrates that Republican policymakers are responsible for the February death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, an analysis of its legislative history shows that it was a bipartisan effort â€” and that no Florida Democratic state senator voted against it.
[ . . . ]
And of the 15 states that have passed variations of the law since 2005, the year Floridaâ€™s model legislation became law, eight â€” a majority â€” had Democratic governors when the laws were enacted. None issued a veto.
[ . . . ]
The bills in Louisiana and West Virginia passed with Democratic control of both houses in the statesâ€™ legislatures, in 2006 and 2008, respectively.
Liberals, of course, never let facts get in the way of their version of the truth.
