Training – Massad Ayoob discusses “Stand Your Ground”
Stand Your Ground has received a great deal of attention since the Martin/Zimmerman incident in Florida. Pay particular attention at about the 8 minute mark and see if you believe Zimmerman responded within the boundaries of “Stand Your Ground”.
He also discusses an incident regarding an Iowa citizen towards the end of the lecture. Yet, our Democrat controlled Senate refused to advance Iowa’s own SYG law.
As I have discussed in earlier posts, drawing your weapon and employing deadly force is a grave responsibility. Yet, when your very life, when the lives of family or friends or other citizens are about to be taken – a citizen who carries lawfully has the right to defend and protect themselves and others. They should not face personal and financial ruin because a violent criminal chose the wrong victim.
Take the time to watch this, it is well worth your time!
