Here is a case that the liberal point to in arguing against Stand Your Ground laws. To me, assuming that the facts are accurate, it certainly looks like Marissa behaved properly and I have stated that before in interviews. From Salon.com:
On Aug. 1, 2010, Marissa Alexander, a 31-year-old mother of three, with a master’s degree and no criminal record, was working for a payroll software company in Jacksonville.
Here is an interview that I had with Brian Lilley. My discussion starts about 5 minutes into the video.
My newest piece starts this way:
It sure sounds scary. “Military weapons” being reimported back into the United States. Or people getting guns without background checks. But the reception being given President Obama’s two new executive orders on guns largely relies on ignorance of how the current rules work.
The president’s executive order banning the reimportation of “military weapons” really only affects old M-1 Garand 30-06 rifles.
Racism should make people pretty angry. But for that very reason charges of racism should only be leveled carefully.
George Zimmerman wasn’t motivated by race in confronting Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman, a Hispanic, was himself one-eighth black. The prosecution in his case produced no statements by Zimmerman showing any racial bias.
John Lott’s newest Fox News piece starts this way:
Are people safer if criminals know who is carrying concealed handguns? Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel seems to think so.
With school starting soon, he claims that if the Clarksville, Arkansas School District lets employees carry concealed handguns at school,their names must be made public.
