AG criticizes stand-your-ground laws

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Attorney General Eric Holder today criticized stand-your-ground laws that allow a person who believes he is in danger to use deadly force in self-defense.

Referring to the case of Trayvon Martin shooting, Holder said: “separate and apart from the case that has drawn the nation’s attention, it’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods.”

In an address to an NAACP convention, the attorney general said it is time to question laws that “senselessly expand the concept of self-defense.”

The attorney general said the country must take a hard look at laws that contribute to “more violence than they prevent.”

Holder said such laws “try to fix something that was never broken.”

Gdog Maybe you should just stay there permanently. You see I travel through Fla a lot, there is no more crime there then there is here I for one I'm all for right to work states. I go to Fla for mud bogging and those people are driving big and expensive trucks just to drive thru the mud. I've talked to many of them and they tell me there are a lot of jobs , but people don't want to start at the bottom . They want top wages to begin with.., You know UNION mentality ! I will say that its only a matter of time before there is more killing because the ENTITLEMENT MOB feels they can take anything that you worked hard for. So you better get armed and soon

Why go to Florida if it is so terrible? Why would anyone want to go someplace where "crime is rampant", there is "massivie unemployment", "very low wages". sounds alot like Youngstown, Ohio to me.
