Holder to Call for End to ‘Stand Your Ground’ Laws at NAACP


Liberals don’t want you to be able to defend yourself, but to have to depend on the government for everything.
Check it out:

On Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder was scheduled to speak to the NAACP convention in Orlando. There, his prepared remarks will call for an end to state “stand your ground” laws – laws that provide citizens with the ability to fight back against aggressors in public places rather than attempting to flee first. “It’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods,” Holder was scheduled to say. “These laws try to fix something that was never broken.”

He will state, “There has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if – and the ‘if’ is important – no safe retreat is available. But we must examine laws that take this further by eliminating the common sense and age-old requirement that people who feel threatened have a duty to retreat, outside their home, if they can do so safely.”
