Gun Controllers Oppose Self-defense in the South

Image hosted by Photobucket.comBoth Georgia and Mississippi have introduced enhanced Castle Doctrine laws which include "Stand your ground" clauses. This is similar to legislation enacted last year in Florida. The Brady Bunch and other victim-disarmers are opposed. These bills remove a duty to retreat, not written in law, but invented by case law in many states.

Bills expanding self-defense right before lawmakers - The Clarion-Ledger Mississippi Senate Judiciary A Committee Chairman Charlie Ross said
Anytime someone threatens you or attacks you, you do not have to retreat, you can stand your ground.
The Brady Bunch - in the person of Peter Hamm - says this "goes too far" and calls gun-owners "the most aggressive people in society." He does not mention that "no duty to retreat" is the law in many states. He does not describe his vision for self-defense.

Macon Telegraph | 01/13/2006 | Bills would extend gun rights. In Georgia lawmakers are considering both the Castle Doctrine and laws enabling people to store guns in their locked vehicles so they may defend themselves on their way to and from work.

The gun-controllers are "concerned." With what they do not say.

The gun-controllers are always opposed to anything that enhances your ability to defend yourself. They want us to just call 911 and hope for the best. They want you to turn over management of your entire life - but especially your safety - to the state.

No one should have to turn their back on a threat to themselves or their children in an attempt to flee. Turning your back on a threat is always a bad idea. (If you ignore it it will not go away.) Self-defense is a human right.
