More than two years after the Trayvon Martin case inspired a re-examination of Stand Your Ground self-defense laws nationwide, an American Bar Association report to be published this week issues a sweeping condemnation of the policies, citing concerns about public safety and racial bias.

The American Bar Association is composed of a bunch of liberal democrats that benefit from the demacrats opposition to tort reform.

The only public safety issue from stand your ground laws is the increased danger to the thugs that get shot when robbing or attacking lawful gun owners.

It appears to me that they are more concerned about their hoodlum clients then they are about the general public.

Racial bias?
Do the ABA nitwits think that the fact that black men are more likely than other demographic groups to avail themselves of SYG protections is evidence that those protections are favoring blacks unfairly?

Or are they totally batshit crazy, and think that laws which help blacks more than others are biased against blacks?
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of men and women. Thomas Paine, The Crisis, Intro. (Dec. 1776).
