Trayvon Martin's mother is going to join Florida lawmakers to announce a bill that would repeal the state's Stand Your Ground Law.
The announcement is scheduled to happen at 11:30 a.m. in Tallahassee. The bill, HB 4009, was filed on Jan. 9, 2013.
Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon's mom, will be there along with the Martin family attorneys.
George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing Trayvon Martin, has used the Stand Your Ground Law as his defense in the shooting.
Obviously, the public servants are trying to make all of us victims of the Trayvon Martins of the world.
The is about lawyers being able to sue people who defend themselves.
Stand your ground did away with that tort.
Stand your ground IS tort reform.
It’s the Thug Protection Act of 2013.
It seems that Florida HB4009 sets up a LEGAL OBLIGATION that you allow yourself to be beaten to death without any attempt at self-defense.
It's a sad day in America when innocent, law abiding citizens become less valuable than the crimminals(D) who try to kill them.
And what slays me is that Zimmerman EASILY met that burden!
He was quite bloodied.
This bill is DOA.
The bill is a publicity stunt. If Zimmerman were dead would there be calls for a Shoot First, Ask Questions Later bill?
The thug was trying to crack his skull.
These politicians want to make the victim a criminal if he tries to ....survive.
I emailed my senator, Jack Latvala, anyway. I want Tallahassee to know that those of us out here in the real world treasure our right to self-defense and wish to exercise it free from legal constraints to defend ourselves or our families from harm.
The ambulance chasing Trial Lawyers want their cash cow back.
Before "Stand Your Ground," ANY injury to a thug by a responsible defender was an automatic payday.
The simple fact of the thug being injured made the defender civilly liable.
Any republican who votes for it is toast!
Completely agree, sir!
I was a poll watcher during the election, and I noticed a comical if not frightening trend:
Liberals were coming to the polls and were taking less than a minute to do their ballots. Our ballots were 2 pages!
I happened to notice one Liberal’s ballot when they had issues with the scan machine: they ONLY voted for the President. No state or local offices, JUST Obama.
We understand that all politics are local. In this case, Florida is still a Republican state as a result. Let’s pray they stay this stupid.
Good luck with that.
Let’s hope so. Our latest generation of “conservative” politicians cave at the first sign of an emotional appeal. There will be children and crying women present. I’m not sure our elected representatives can take it.
So it looks like they have lost $4 million on this POS.
Sorry, wrong thread.
The Other Side gets unlimited bites at the apple. Our side is too “polite” (i.e. balless) to try for anything more than once.
how about this lazy couldn;t careless woman had bene a mother in the first place and brought a boy up to be a good person, not attack others, not get suspended, not do drugs etc.
She actually thinks it will pass here in FL.
Her and the other race baiting pimps need to understand we have guns because of people like her son who have not been brought up correctly.
we not here in FL that this will not pass, her and her race pimps and lawyers are looking at more publciity and mponey.
To hell with ehr, we have stand your ground because mothers like her do not raise their sons correctly and so we can defend ourselves from these piss ants who think it;s alright to mug, beat and rob hard working folks.
never going to pass in this state and if any republican thinks of voting for this then they are good night for them.
Nearly everyone I know has a gun or two or 3 except the few mothers who have recently moved here from their liberal socialist yankee cess pit of a state.
They are the few who harp on outsdie at school how smart they are and yet they have never worked but their huby does, they are the ones who sit around doing the gossip and thinking of more rules to make us look like the socialsit crap state they left.
They are the ones I love to get involved with and say something to them
All of this is a scheme to make us frustrated, submissive, defenseless sheep. The leftists do not want resistance when they apply their jack boots on your necks.
Well at least she is as dumb as she looks. By the time she gets to the podium, OBAMA will be at his podium shredding the 2nd Amendment. NO ONE will even cover her statement or questions.
If she decides to viciously assault anybody she should check first to see if they are armed
She’s just trying to get ahead of the soon-to-be-publicized Trayvon Martin school records which she knows will not be flattering to her little thug:
