The law that is so violently opposed by the radical left simply states that no one must bow and submit to being robbed without the right to self defense. Now I cannot help but wonder why such a concept is found objectionable. To not agree to being a willing victim is racist??? Its a basic concept in Constitutional law that people have the right to life, liberty, etc and that does not include having to submit to robbery and assault. Why is that idea objectionable to black civil rights advocates and the lunatic left wing that is currently raping and robbing America? It means that you don't have to flee your home when home invaders kick the door in, or you don't have to jump out of your care when people want to steal it. Oddly, people who advocate "civil rights" do not recognize the basic rights of all citizens, just the thug demographic.

Lansing MI

“A game called "Point-em-out, Knock-em-out" has made its way to Lansing, and it's exactly how it sounds. The game consists of someone being randomly targeted, then attacked. . On February 26th a man waiting for his six-year-old daughter to be dropped off from school, had no idea he would be the city's first reported victim.

"I saw the van circle twice, and the second time three kids came out. I didn't suspect anything. I hadn't any enemies, or any reason to believe they would be looking to do anything to me."

We are not revealing the victim's identity for his protection.

The victim was attacked by 17-year-old Marvell Weaver. But Weaver did more than try to knock his victim out, he tried to do it with a taser. Luckily for the victim, the taser didn't work and he was able to PROTECT HIMSELF WITH HIS CONCEALED-CARRY .40 CALIBER PISTOL”

I don't need a "law" to tell me I'm allowed to use my gun if I feel I need to

The drug problems are NOT going to get any better and the robberies, rapes, and assaults are only getting more and more common

Get armed, get trained and practice, practice, practice!

God point GOTNOCLUE- Juice was found not guilty but ended up finding his way home (where he probably should have been since a juvie)to prison. If it's meant for Zimmerman he'll end up in prison too.

You sound like you're stoked to play the "Knockout Game" or go "Wilding" this weekend. Maybe a new rec center or playground would help. You know--gotta represent!

The partisan battles that have paralyzed Washington in recent years took a historic turn on Thursday, when Senate Democrats eliminated filibusters for most presidential nominations, severely curtailing the political leverage of the Republican minority in the Senate and assuring an escalation of partisan warfare.

The rule change means federal judge nominees and executive-office appointments can be confirmed by a simple majority of senators, rather than the 60-vote super majority that has been required for more than two centuries.

The change does not apply to Supreme Court nominations. But the vote, mostly along party lines, reverses nearly 225 years of precedent and dramatically alters the landscape for both Democratic and Republican presidents, especially if their own political party holds a majority of, but fewer than 60, Senate seats.

Hefner, correct again. Wasn't in West Virginia that when the Castle Doctrine was discussed that minority groups complained that more minorities would be shot as a result?

"Stand your Ground" may become a euphemism for "Shoot on Site".

FYI bm:

George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue a family who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, police said today.

Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of Dana and Mark Gerstle and their two children, who were trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla. at approximately 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.

By the time police arrived, two people - including Zimmerman - had already helped the family get out of the overturned car, the sheriff's office said. No one was reported to be injured.
