“Stand Your Ground” is an alleged remedy for laws that require you to retreat, not fight, in the face of danger, regardless of the circumstances. Thirty-three states have Stand Your Ground laws in some form or another. In some states, the law is being weakened. In some, it’s either being strengthened or is not on the books and has been proposed. In some states, it applies only in the home. In other states, it has force in the home, but with limitations—you can shoot intruders in some rooms, but not in others. In short, confusion reigns. This hell’s brew is good news for lawyers. For people who go heeled in the belief that they have the right to shoot in self defense, it’s a trap.
