Stand Your Ground!

Robb Allen (of Sharp As A Marble) speaks the truth:

It takes an evil mind …To claim you must run away, turning you back on someone who wants to harm you, first before being allowed to defend yourself.

WORD.He states further:

This isn’t based on logic or reason, but rather an emotional response where person A requires person B to pay the price for person A’s need to feel vindicated for their life choices.

Isn’t this the prime description defining the difference between  modern liberal/progressive/socialist/statist thought, and conservative/libertarian/individual-rights/less government based thought?

That, and in the U.S. Constitution it statespromote the general welfare’, not ‘shove our agenda down your throat because we know better than you and we feel like it‘!

It’s as though the difference is principles versus feelings.

You should go and read Robb’s take.  Daily.

  1. I once read a comment from someone in Tulsa, OK. Violent criminal activity is appropriate in today’s world, and an armed citizen resisting is, at a minimum, an OSHA violation.

  2. I’ve started calling these ‘things’ “Run Away Laws” – because that is what they really are – and the part they are refusing to admit is that the ‘duty’ to escape in its final analysis REQUIRES the victim to NOT fight back.

    WSF – I can actually see a criminal (and his attorney) filing suit for an OSHA violation if they get shot because the intended victim created a ‘hostile work environment’. Hmmm perhaps that ‘rationale’ is what the dept. of (in)justice used to call the Ft. Hood massacre a simple case of ‘workplace’ violence. Perhaps name deleted will try to use that as part of his defense – ‘but judge, I was only crying out against a hostile woke environment’……….

  3. I would submit the criminal “created” the hostile work environment, and I was then only responding to the changed condition. Of course, that assumes said criminal actually survived my ‘response’.

  4. Just what I want to do – turn my back on someone behaving in a threatening manner so that I can be hit from behind and without the ability to parry or dodge.
