Do you believe that state legislators
|No way. Those laws are meant to promote and protect a gun-toting culture, which is the last thing we need.
|Leave the policing up to the police. If the law is passed, there could be more situations where innocent people get murdered because they look suspicious.||Conrad Lynn
|Possibly, but with limitations. It will have to be fine-tuned and should not be too broad.||Peter A.
|Absolutely not. “Stand Your Ground” promotes a culture of vigilante justice where a nutcase with a gun can shoot a “suspicious” person because they feel “threatened.” Combine that with racial profiling and we have the return of legalized lynching.||Tameka Horner
|Yes, if the “Stand Your Ground Law” is modified to mimic the key principles within the “Castle Doctrine” which allows a person who legally owns a fire arm to protect their home if an intruder enters and threatens to inflict serious bodily harm.

|Absolutely not. Giving justification to the use of deadly force in the name of self defense only further provokes civilians into “taking matters into their own hands” rather than awaiting the protection of law enforcement.
