    From a WSJ flash email:

    Attorney General Eric Holder blasted "stand-your-ground laws" in the wake of the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin—saying such laws cause more violence than they prevent.

    Mr. Holder, speaking to the NAACP Annual Convention in Orlando, Fla., took direct aim at "stand-your-ground laws," which say a person can use force in self-defense without first attempting to retreat from the situation.

    How dare you not run away! You have no right to defend yourself! (sarcasm)
    What an Asshat. This case wasn't even a stand your ground case. It was a self defense case, cut and dried.

    Self defense is racist.

    I fear we're getting deeper and deeper into very dangerous ground. I would hope that gay and womans' rights groups start to chime in on this one. Rollback of stand your ground is a direct attack on anyone who is assaulted.

    This is one of those things, that even the most liberal of people who believe that passing laws stops criminals, can see is not a good idea. The idiot Burdick tried to do the same thing this session with her "must retreat" bill. Are these people really that stupid?

    Its typical of everything the left does. Twist and warp everything to suit their needs. Like all the MSM. One big disinformation machine to meet an agenda.

    That should read are they really that evil. Answer yes. The anti gun bills they tried to pass in DC excluded themselves. Only the leftists want the right to defend themselves. Marxism, Communism, Socialism are all about control.

    Will the ATF, FBI, and other law-enforcement agencies also "retreat" before defending themselves?

    Armed Defense is an everyday occurance throughout the country AND THESE ARE JUST A SMALL POERTION OF THEM.

    NRA-ILA | Armed Citizen

    They are never reported because the left cannot use them to their benefit.

    Many of them also occur in restrictive states where the last thing a citizen who has warded off criminals would do is call the coppers

    Wasn't it the federal government who told their employees to do that exact thing when faced with an active shooter? Hide, throw staplers and all?
