Massad Ayoob - Cato Institute - Stand Your Ground Laws



         Mas does a fantastic job of laying out the facts from the nonsense & flat out lies that a lot of folks in the liberal media are putting forth regarding the true nature & details of stand your ground laws.If these laws were in reality shoot first/license to kill & allow someone to use force including deadly force if simply scared/nervous/feel threatened as some falsely describe them as then I would be against them myself, but that is simply not true at all.If you read them over you'll see they are not all that different from the self-defense laws that were already on the books and that stand your ground laws are in fact quite reasonable & sensible common sense pieces of legislature.
