TN: Tenn. 'Stand Your Ground Law' In Conversation After Deadly Florida Shooting

Florida's "stand your ground" law could save a man from prosecution after he fatally shot another man following a heated argument over a parking space at a convenience store.

Tennessee is one of at least 20 states that have the "Stand Your Ground" self-defense law.

"An individual is authorized in using deadly force to defend themselves if they are in imminent fear of death or seriously bodily harm," Executive Director for Tennessee Firearms Association John Harris said.

"We really view gun violence as a public health issue."

It is not. It is a crime issue. "Interest-balancing" has no place in any conversation concerning laws that burden fundamental rights.

"So we’re always going to look at the academic research to help inform our policy, positions and the types of legislation that we support and oppose," Roth said.

Wrong. You must look to the Constitution to understand what you can and can't do. Once you've sorted that out, THEN you can consider policy positions.

"[T]he enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table." - D.C. v. Heller (2008)
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government. — Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist (#28)
