More than a year after the tragic shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on a Florida street drew national attention to Stand Your Ground laws, and with shooter George Zimmerman’s trial set to begin next week, no state has successfully repealed its law authorizing the unfettered use of deadly force. But on Thursday, Alaska became the latest state to adopt a Stand Your Ground law, with Gov. Sean Parnell (R) signing the law and several other gun bills at a shooting range.
More typical illogic from the far left here: because they have (more than likely erroneously) decided that Trayvon Martin was a saint who didn’t threaten George Zimmerman you shouldn’t have the right to defend yourself or your loved ones.
Make no mistake, this isn’t just about “Stand Your Ground”, they would prefer you not be able to defend yourself at home too.
