President Obama’s latest attack on stand your ground laws leave little doubt that he either doesn’t understand a law he sponsored as an Illinois Senator or he is lying to the American people. Let’s take a look at his quote from the Washington Times:
“If Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk? And do we actually think that he would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman who had followed him in a car because he felt threatened?”
If you have read our previous installment on the Trayvon Martin verdict and had hopefully watched this video. You would know that there is no way anyone could legally “stand their ground” because someone is walking behind them. Sadly this sin’t the first time the situation around George Zimmerman’s shooting Trayvon Martin to stop Martin from bashing his skull into the sidewalk, I doubt it will be the last.
