Skip to comments.“Turn Tail and Run” Law Proposed
Posted on 04/24/2012 7:01:02 PM PDT by Revtwo
Senator Lousenburg (D. NJ) has filed the Turn Tail and Run (TTR) bill in the U.S. Senate which, if passed, would preempt ALL State Stand Your Ground (SYG) laws. The new bill would impose a national duty to retreat at all times when one encounters a criminal threat or is about to become a victim of violent crime.

So then if you’re then chased, what? Can you stop and shoot?
to be kidding!
And if someone is sitting on top of you, bashing your head into the sidewalk, you are supposed to somehow get up and run???
Is this old turd still around? Jerseyites! You should be ashamed.
Turn Tail and Run (TTR) bill AKA as Drop Trou and die bill
If Trayvon is on top of you beating your face into the ground he still has the right of way? :p
DOH! Guess I should read the original first....
Good thing it’s a joke.
What a pus#!
I guess that the other person is making you stand your ground. But in that case that run part is out of the question.
I know that I would break a heel or turn an ankle (because that’s what happens in the movies) so I would have to just turn and fire.
Under Stand Your Ground the perp or the bully aggressor gets shot.
Under Turn Tail and Run the victim gets shot in the back.
WOW,that's fair, Frank!!!
haven’t read the article yet, but you have got to be kidding me? Please tell me this is satire?
Seems like an obligation to retreat would be a violation of your Constitutional right of self-defense.
Someone should call it the “Relax and enjoy the rapist’s shtup” bill...
1. How can the Federal Government create a Constitutionally legal law that preempts a State law?
2. How is one supposed to "turn tail and run" when one is pinned to the ground and having one's head smashed on asphalt? You know...getting Zimmermanned.
This piece of shiite is DOA.
And Senator Lousenburg is a piece of shiite for introducing such a disgusting concept as this as a bill to be consdiered for a new law.
Yeah, that’ll discourage violence. I swear these people should be banished to crap neighborhoods for life. Let them see how it is up close and personal.
Does this apply to the criminal use of our TAXES???
Satire should be banned from FR.
