Can you believe that?
I think they need Batman!
Okay here is a list of states with some form of Stand Your Ground or Castle Laws
So ... As you can see MOST of the states involved have limited areas with a ready police force or they have a high wait-for-help-to-arrive situations (of course not in LA, CA where police calls can take up to an hour) ...
For the DOJ to say that the Stand-Your-Ground laws INCREASE crimes is ridiculous .... Don't you think we'd be hearing of a LOT more cases if this were true??
The ONLY REASON that this story got feet was because it was reported as a Black/White issue in FL ... It's because it was a 17 yr old although the photo released with the story was that of a 14 year old kid ... It came on the heels of the Sandy Hook school shooting, the Joker shooting, and the Dems attempt to put the cabosh on gun ownership ...
In ND & SD the cities are so far apart that sometimes there are only 2 or 3 cop cars for a couple of towns to share - this is not a Mayberry world!
And I'm sorry - but there still needs to be an investigation of ANY shooting that happens ... They do NOT just go " okay, self-defense, never mind" .... The cops take statements, they confiscate the weapon used, they run checks, they take statements, they DO THEIR JOBS!
For the government to even THINK about taking away these laws will leave countless numbers of people WITHOUT protection of any sort ... No ready cops (not every place can have cops driving the streets) ... No way to protect themselves ... No help at ll.
I think it's time we stop voting in people from big cities ... We need some small community people who have to deal with these problems everyday!
The rise in gun CRIMES are caused by CRIMINALS not Everyday Joes!
Just remember Laws only effect those who actually FOLLOW THE LAWS ... Criminals, and politicians, need not apply
