The writing in the wall is becoming clearer. Nobody but a few prosecutors, judges and anti gun activists wanted it gone. A great majority of Floridians did not want this law to be stricken from the books.
“If we have to look at two possible outcomes — one being a citizen, an honest citizen who is wounded, hurt, maimed or raped, and a dead thug, I’ll take the dead thug anytime,” Seiden said.
This week, University of Florida researchers delivered the preliminary results of a study examining Stand Your Ground. The study found that since 2005, when the law was adopted, the number of justifiable homicides has climbed, violent crime rates have declined and tourism has risen in Florida.
GSGV is NOT happy. I really do not care.
If there is one particular reason why this attempt to insert gun control in Florida failed (beside the facts that we like our Gun Laws) was attaching it to the Martin/Zimmerman case. Once the people found out that most of the original information coming out of the case was being edited for political correctness or outright lied about it, the tide turned on both Zimmerman’s perception of culpability and the desire to get rid of SYG. We go back to why do they need to lie if their cause is just and righteous with the answer being it is neither. They cannot win converts by telling the truth and admitting that guns in the hands of honest people will save lives. They much rather lie and kill us than accepting their failure.
Just remember, they will try again and again until they finally disappear or go into hibernation.
