Skip to comments.Bloomberg: ‘Stand Your Ground’ Laws Don’t Belong in Civilized Society
Posted on 04/11/2012 1:31:19 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Mayor Michael Bloomberg went down to Washington D.C. earlier today to advocate for limits to Stand Your Ground laws, made famous the recent shooting of Trayvon Martin, which allow looser standards for the use of deadly force. Flanked by representatives of groups like the NAACP and National Urban League, he announced a new initiative to push states, particularly Florida, to reform their self-defense laws.
These laws are not the kind of laws that a civilized society should have, Mr. Bloomberg said at the event. This has nothing to do with gun owners rights, nothing to do with the Second Amendment. Plain and simple, this is just trying to give people a license to murder.
No civilized society that I know of, outside of America, has laws that permit anybody to just decide someone shouldnt be alive, pull out a gun, shoot them, and get away with it, he later added.

Really?? Neither do robbery or rape. So, until we reach social perfection....
This man doesn’t know what he is talking about. It is bull shit.
“No civilized society that I know of, outside of America, has laws that permit anybody to just decide someone shouldnt be alive, pull out a gun, shoot them, and get away with it,..””
We don’t have laws like this either.
Bloomberg should lead by example and lose his security detail.
No civilized society that I know of, outside of America, has laws that permit anybody to just decide someone shouldnt be alive, pull out a gun, shoot them, and get away with it,
OK, this Bozo is dumber than I am. Sheesh!
Well, Bloomers....this Society is no longer Civilized....especially when NBPP is putting a bounty on a non-convicted man's head.
Bloomer's is such a pathetic, pandering hack.
Says a limousine liberal that has armed body guards the law says the public must obey or get shot.
Trayvon Martin is not the kind of person that a civilized society should have.
So, in his mind we have an obligation to just “take it” when we are being victimized by a criminal.
Liberals are SICK.
I am getting really tired of this claim.
SYG has NOTHING to do with the Zimmerman/Martin case.
If Zimmerman’s story is what happened, it was self-defense by the law as it stood before SYG.
If the story told by Martin’s supporters is true, SYG doesn’t protect Zimmerman.
Either way, SYG is just not relevant to this case.
Until we can outlaw Democrats, us truly civilized folk NEED these laws.....
Again, the Left is up in arms because these laws let whitey fight back!
Bloominidot don’t belong where he is either....three term mayor of a two term city
So, in a civilized society, people should be required to run away when attacked ?
Do these people realize how pathetic that sounds ? They are advocating putting all honest citizens at the mercy of criminals. If you can’t use ‘the great equalizer’ against someone bashing your head into the ground, when can you ?
Well, Sharia Law will fix that.
So Bloombrain thinks we have a civilized society . . . it is because of morons like him who do not recognize the right and VIRTUE of self-defense that our society is no longer civilized.
I thought libtards believed in the self-esteem of the individual. How much self-worth can one accumulate when idiots in government like Bloomberg do not even believe that a person is worth enough to protect themselves from harm?
Abort to your heart’s content and do not protect yourself from harm . . . pure evil.
Well... that all depends on your race, color, creed, national origin, how rich you are, or how much political pull you have.
rape, robbery and murder is okay?
but self defense is bad?
I agree 100%.
This has ZERO to do with SYG. It sure isn’t like Zimmerman was sitting in a coffee shop somewhere and Martin came up and cold-cocked him.
Zimmerman should have done what dispatch told him to do, at the very least, he NEVER should have left his truck armed.
Look - I could put a pistol under my coat, go into a biker bar, walk up to the biggest guy there and call him a queer.
Then, as he’s beating the livin crap out of me, I could put one through him.
That’s not SYG - something I DID helped precipitate the incident.
Lots of FReepers will beat me up on this, but IMHO Zimmerman isn’t exactly the brightest bulb in the pack, he went out loaded for bear, and got himself into EXACTLY the kind of situation that he shouldn’t have.
And it gives responsible gun owners a BAD NAME, and I am extremely pissed about that.
No civilized society that I know of, outside of America, has laws that permit anybody to just decide someone shouldnt be alive, pull out a gun, shoot them, and get away with it,..
If that is really the case Bloomy, why don't you fire your whole police dept., or at the very least, your personal security people? Lead by example you worthless POS! It shouldn't be a problem...no guns allowed in NYC!
