It is very important for the media and the race mongers to make him out to be white.

It is totally irrelevant though to the case at hand. The case at hand is that an unarmed person was shot and no charges were made against the shooter.

I don't care if the person shot was a 30 year old white guy. That's the real issue. The media and race mongers are harping on race because that is what they do to get ratings and attention.

This is really about that stupid "Stand Your Ground" law that the NRA pushed in.

"I'll shoot you. Then I'll say you were threatening me and be fine. You're dead so no argument."

It's so stupid even in gangfights they are getting off with it.

Agree.  Unfortunately, that's not the case with the sharptons and media.

Do you think they're trying to incite violence?

Agree both parts. Maybe not so much on the violence, but attention at least. Violence gets attention.

What do you think about the "Stand your ground" law? I'm curious as a NRA supporter where you stand on it?

I think it's great.  If more states had it, I think you'd see crime rate go down.  The last thing a criminal wants is to (1) confront a gun carrier and (2) in a state that allows someone defend themselves.  Instead, criminals are going to target areas where they know it's less likely they'll encounter a struggle.

Stricter gun laws encourage crime and the stats back that up.

So if I got in an argument and someone shoots me with no witnesses, he can just say I threatened him so there wouldn't even be a trial.

Some guy comes onto a woman and she feel threatened. She shoots him. No charges and no trial.

That's OK with you?

Not if they shot you.  I consider you a friend and would vehemently defend.  :)

Thank you. And the feeling is mutual.

However, you would have no way to defend. If there were no witnesses and I'm dead. His word that I threatened him is enough to not even be arrested. I might be able to almost stomach the law if it was used in a trial (probably would still piss me off), but it is used to not even have a trial.

"Stand Your Ground "really ties law enforcement's hands," says Florida law professor Elizabeth Megale, "because immunity is defined so broadly." Immunity, she says, does not just mean you can't be prosecuted. It means you can't be detained.
For defense attorneys, Megale says, Stand Your Ground "is a dream." "

"It began with a drunken argument in a bar which was resumed later that night on the side of the road. One man was walking, the other was a passenger in a car. The car stopped, the argument began again, the man on the side of the road leaned into the car window, and was shot to death. The Florida Supreme Court ruled the shooter was "standing his ground." "

Welcome to the wild west.  Have gun, will shoot.
This law should be repealed.
