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.

And if someone is sitting on top of you, bashing your head into the sidewalk, you are supposed to somehow get up and run???

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.

Hmmm, let's see...

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!!!

Seems like an obligation to retreat would be a violation of your Constitutional right of self-defense.

Two small points:

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.

“Satire should be banned from FR.”

It’s hard to tell the true headlines from fiction anymore.

The sad thing is this just might happen. If the senate can tell Arizona it’s over riding one of it’s laws, then why not over ride every state law it wants.

Is there a difference any more?

ROFLOL. I was getting ready to compose a comment, and then decided to read the story at the link. Man, I’m glad I took that course of action. Satire isn’t always easy to spot, especially with the lame-brain ideas liberals are always coming up with.
