The Herald has printed several editorials about the controversial Stand Your Ground law. It appears the media think that if they shove their anti-gun agenda down our throats long enough, we will accept it.
This law is a good one if used properly. I should not have to try to flee because you threaten me, or my loved ones with bodily harm or death, but not because you threw a bucket of popcorn at me. People go out and kill others behind the wheel of a vehicle, but no one is calling for a ban on cars. People drink and drive, then kill others, but no one is calling for a ban on alcohol. Don’t try to punish 99.9 percent of law abiding citizens for the stupidity of .1 percent’s actions.
The majority of us donning a sidearm do so with a great sense of responsibility for the weapon and those around us. It is not something to show or flash. I passed the federal background check, and it is my right.
