Opposition to Stand Your Ground

Evan Nappen posted a rather humorous bit of satire about opponents to Stand Your Ground that’s about the “Turn Tail and Run” law.

Senator Lousenburg (D. NJ) has filed the “Turn Tail and Run” (TTR) bill in the U.S. Senate which, if passed, would preempt ALL State “Stand Your Ground” (SYG) laws. The new bill would impose a national duty to retreat at all times when one encounters a criminal threat or is about to become a victim of violent crime. New York City Mayor Bloomingidiot has made passage of the “TTR” a centerpiece of his national “Second Chance at Shoot First” campaign. The mayor heartily approved of TTR, especially since bodyguards of celebrities, VIP’s, and political figures were exempted.

There’s more, so go read the whole thing.

  1. While NJ has a duty to retreat before using deadly force outside of the home, and a proportional force requirement outside the home; as near as I can tell, once Zimmerman was down and having his head beaten against concrete he would be justified in employing deadly force against Martin. Certainly if he did not initiate violence, anyway. See NJ jury instructs on use of force, use of deadly force. Which just goes to show that this isn’t an issue of Stand Your Ground.

  2. Just out of curiosity, is “Lousenburg” pronounced like “louse” or “lose?”

    I just can’t wrap my head around how stupid people are. They want us to retreat regardless of whether or not we can do it safely? Regardless of where we are? Even if I’m in my own home, I have to retreat, instead of trying to protect my family?

  3. Actually, I prefer the term “Thank You Doctrine.” If a thug attacks you and is bashing your head into the concrete, your only option is to say “Thank you.” If you see Bill Clinton raping your wife, your only option is to say “Thank you.” If you see Ladd Everitt and David Frum gang-molesting your child, your only option is to say “Thank you.”

  4. You don’t have to like it. You can do as they do in England; “Stop! Or I’ll say ‘stop’ again!”
