Skip to comments.President Clinton Hopes Trayvon Martin Case Leads to Reappraisal of 'Stand Your Ground' Laws
Posted on 04/02/2012 10:30:24 AM PDT by bgill
Former President Bill Clinton said the "tragedy" of the killing of Trayvon Martin should cause a re-thinking of the "Stand Your Ground" law. "There are different stories being told," the former president said, "so the first thing I have to say is that it's important to find out the facts."
Clinton continued "but to me, beyond the incredible personal tragedy- this young man was not armed, he clearly presented no threat to anybody's life

Unless you are Martin.
It's not a crime, under Sharia Law.
Of course the liberals want to repeal “Stand Your Ground”.
If it were up to me there’d be a “Hunt Them Down And Snuff-um” law.
Or at least the restoration of the “Wanted Dead or Alive” stuff.
I would like to go back to a ‘gentler’ time when the words of a CONVICTED LIAR and SEXUAL PREDATOR were given short shrift, not glamorized as they are in present time.
The article shows that Bubba:
1) Does not understand the difference between “Stand Your Ground”, and Shall Issue/Concealed Carry laws. No wonder he lost his law license.
2) Believes anyone who acts in self-defense should be prosecuted for murder, regardless of circumstances (protecting victims from wrongful prosecution in such cases is exactly why SYG was passed).
Why do these leftist bloats sympathize with criminals rather than victims? The attitude that we all should just lie down and let criminals kill us is sick, Slick.
Isn’t this what it’s really all about? Repealing Stand Your Ground? Dis-arming law abiding citizens?
The Stand Your Ground law isn’t relevant to this case, Slick, but I’d be glad to treat you to a triple bacon cheeseburger and we could talk about it.
How much longer will this jackass recieve free secret service protection? He can pontificate about gun control laws after he has to live like the rest of us. Until then, he can just STFUASD.
Do you think that Mr. Zimmerman pulled his gun with intention of defending himself by shooting Mr. Martin?
Or would you admit it is more likely that in the struggle over the gun, someone pushed, pulled or whatever, the trigger in the midst of the battle?
I have only seen one trained weapons carrier (a black cop demoing to a high school class) who put his finger on the trigger as he pulls the weapon out of it’s holster.
He shot himself through the foot.
However, it is the Stand Your Ground Law that all the frickin commies(politicians/thugs/Occupy whatever) want removed. That is why Bill Clinton spoke up.
This case has nothing to do with the stand your ground law. Even the legislator who wrote it has said as much. Does not take a genius to figure that out. Good grief.
If someone is trying to hurt/kill you, it’s best just to them. Otherwise you might hurt their feelings.
Now go pay your taxes, your government is broke. :)
Nine out of ten rapists agree with Clinton that women should never shoot their rapist.
We need “Stand Your Ground” laws, now more than EVER!
