These "stand your ground" laws empower the criminal gun happy people blast our brains out as long they claim self defense with no witnesses. Airtight. This is how these laws work. The NRA drowned out all rational voices telling the genius law makers that dire consequences would ensue if these laws passed. But nobody heard it. We turned into the wild wild west and we didn't even know it.
Johnny and Sally git your guns because the bullets will be a flyin' now that we have our god blessid new founded freedom. The evidence has become clear and abundant. We have turned a new corner in America. More guns than ever. Never has there been more guns in America then right now. Hee Haw! I'm ready, are you?
I could suggest a gun, but you'll have to consider your own application of immediate security. Generally, you'll want to be pre-loaded, snap the safety and quick shoot. He who gets off the first shot at close range wins. Big guns are harder to conceal, must always consider the application. In public concealment is important and not to be taken lightly.
Anyway, please let me know how we can explore the uses of our newly founded freedom of justifiable homicide. I have personally experienced having a gun held in my face when I was ten years old so I know first-hand that helpless feeling of having no defense. I ended up running and the shot didn't come. But, in a moment, I was really there, I couldn't see anything but the end of the chamber, and, in a way, I always will. There's more that happens, it's more physical, it's like getting close to passing out. Anyway, enough there. I think most of us, given the circumstances would kill to survive. But FEAR can override the crap out of us. People with too much are more likely to kill and therefore wouldn't be very wise under fire.
Anyway, I spoke my piece. We don't need to stand ground when the madman comes. I say run. If I get cornered, and the criminal catches up, and he's armed with a gun, it's bang bang time. I'm a pretty good shot but it all happens too fast. First bullet with a name on it wins. Since I was ten I stared death down plenty of times. When it's time I'll go reluctantly.
