    Anti-gunners’ target du jour: Stand Your Ground

    Today’s Chicago Sun-Times editorial page takes a shot at “Stand Your Ground” laws in the wake of Tuesday’s Senate hearing on this much-debated self-defense doctrine, using a term, and perhaps even a tactic, straight out of the gun control playbook exposed by this column almost three months ago.

    So I was wondering, the Senate may have taken up a debate, but can they really do anything?? This is a State issue. Not a federal one.

    Senator Cruz had some very good, compasionate, and accurate words for Trayvon Martin's mother and those trying to use that story to push to get SYG laws repealed. The TM-GZ case had nothing to do with SYG, so it should not even be discussed. He also blasted away the notion that SYG only hurts black people. I am glad we have him on our side.

    TM's mother wants her son to be remembered as some kind of innocent martyr. What most of America, including the jury that found Zimmerman innocent, believe is that a person should be able to protect their life from criminals. End of story. Now, if Bloomberg and his cronies would only get this woman off their talking heads media tour we could get on with our lives and back to work to pay for her EBT card.

    Since they got a 1+ million $$ settlement from the homeowners associations insurance co. do they still qualify for EBT cards?

    I'm sure if she moved to Portland or Seattle she could.....I see people all the time at the grocery store paying with EBT only to drive away in their new Audis with the "Si Se Puede!" Obama stickers.....

    I just read that they had raised some $5 million in their "charitable trust" also. Best thing that ever happened to them was having their son killed by a white man defending his life from a criminal. Trayvon wasn't even living with either his mother or father either.
