NY Slimes Article on "Stand Your Ground" Still Echoing Around the MSM

Critics say defense law will create vigilantes - Tuscaloosa The liberal media hates self-defense. In the simplified world-view of the Left you are either a victim or an oppressor. A law-abiding person justly defending himself from attack warps their minds.

In the referenced article they try to imply that justified self-defense is akin to vigilantism. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I would like to say that they know this, but I am not sure that the loyal foot-soldiers of the Left even have this much understanding of the world. The NYT said it was bad, it must be bad.

Defending yourself from attack is not vigilante justice. Going out the next day and searching out and killing your attackers would be vigilante justice, and it is clearly both legally and morally worng. Defending yourself when faced with a reasonable threat of death or grave bodily injury is justified under the law. Self-defense is a human right.
