Here's the link.
But if you did, could you come home and look those little goats in the eye and tell them there’s no hate in your heart? ... I doubt you have the level of duplicitous thinking required to be a good rioter. And you would need a big dose of Magic Thinking to justify your riotous behavior don’tchaknow.
Thanks for the ping....I took the occasion to refresh myself on Nevada self defense laws.
The only thing I would like to see change here is to have a Castle Doctrine for immunity against law suits, other then that all seems to be in order.
Even carry laws here are in order, shall issue State, may carry in car even concealed as long as the weapon is not concealed on your person (absent CCW).
Now all we have to do is get rid of Reid and Heller.

2009: Roderick Scott found not guilty when he armed himself and confronted teens breaking into cars. He shoots and kills a 16-year-old.
2010: John White found guilty but released early after he'd armed himself and walked out of his house to confront a group of teens, and then shot and killed a 17-year-old.
White had walked out of his house to confront of a group of teens. When John White was found guilty, Al Sharpton organized protests in support of him.
Zimmerman, armed, exited his vehicle. When George Zimmerman was found not guilty, Sharpton organized protests against him.
There are some differences: The first two cases were in New York, where the law requires you to retreat to a safe place (right?) In the John White case, the group was targeting his family and came to his house. In the Roderick Scott case, the teens were (allegedly?) breaking into cars. According to Zimmerman's own account, Martin was just walking down the street (at first). (There are no eyewitnesses to what happened between GZ exiting the vehicle and TM being on top of GZ, right?) But we do know that GZ didn't shoot until TM was literally on top of him.
But, there's another main difference: Both Scott and White walked out of their own homes and brandished guns at a group of teens. Zimmerman got out of his vehicle, and it doesn't sound like he brandished his gun at T. Martin.
It doesn't matter what anyone out there reading might think about the GZ trial and its outcome. (I personally am not a fan of GZ.) You'd have to admit that Sharpton and his minions of all races, along with the media, are playing both sides, just to pit people against each other. These protests, the uproar - it's about money and politics, and nothing else.
Imagine if Zimmerman was convicted and Rick Scott pardoned him! Or even worse, JEB BUSH! Every city in the USA would be burning.
I saw those at the NAB Show here recently. Also saw the 2x, 4x and 8X HDTV.
Awesome pictures but are definitely 5 or so years down the road...at least.
Indeed. That’s another good point!
I live in an “unlimited” Stand your Ground state. I’m a disabled vet, aka senior citizen, and a proud half-breed. I don’t know, nor can perform any sort of ‘fancy legwork or handwork stuff’. I don’t go looking for inopportune moments in my life.
It is THE THUG who thinks that anything and everything you own, is their’s for the taking and ownership. It is THE THUG that searches the crowds, for whom to set themselves upon. It is THE THUG that determines the time, the place, and the means and the manner of which to dislodge, what they think is ‘their’s’ from you.
It is, solely, due to the continued existence of a human species called THUGS, that I have chosen to exercise my 2A right, in the defense of my life against THUGS.
Thanks for the ping!
No bias here....
It appears that you are a bit less than even.
PA is on the map incorrectly, but what do you expect when Reuters doesn’t do research and accepts research from the Brady Campaign as truth.
I am? I was being sarcastic.
L I B...
OK, you lost me.
I would have emptied the clip . . .
Thanks for the ping!
A similar case that got no national tv coverage because the Black guy wasn’t the one who ate a bullet?
You can add Colorado to that map. Colorado is a “no duty to retreat” state by long-standing case law. But it does not have the extra protections against civil liability that the FLA stand your ground law has.
Its this image the now somewhat minority dominated media PROMOTE.....even though white murder of blacks has been very uncommon since the early 60s......no matter......we are in a new internal cold war:
Indiana btw.....the lynching that inspired Ms Holliday ...well...inspired the communist who wrote the song
And here’s another theory: Roderick perhaps could be a “Black White” as opposed to a “White Black.” Right? Confusing.
Funny how the gray states mostly elect RINOs and Dems.....
And notably, they are states with the highest crime rates, no doubt.
Thanks for the ping! ^_^
Another article on this:
I guess what is good for the goose, is NOT good for the gander in this case...
You’d think hypocrisy like this would be a ratings boost for any news agency...But nooooooooo...
You’re way too easy to lose.
If you can joke, why can’t anyone else?
