    Michigan reviews "Stand your ground"

    Michigan lawmaker seeks review of 'stand your ground' | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

    Technically, MI law states you have no duty to retreat. You won't find any of this "stand your ground" baloney in the law books. Detroit Rep. Harvey Santana wants to change that. He ought to read the law before he pounds his fist wanting to change it.

    Can't we just sell Detroit to Windsor?

    Most politicians who favor "duty to retreat" seem to favor bad guys over the good guys. I wonder how many of them were defense attorneys before the became politicians? I have said more than once, 125-150 years ago our "criminals" would have been given a proper name. That name is OUTLAW because they lived outside our laws. Sometime in the last 100 years some over educated idiot decided to give a 50 cent thug a $500 name when he called them a criminal. Since then their egos can only be compared to certain politicians. A person who is where they are legally and doing something that is legal should never have to retreat from any thug or politician. It should be the thug who has the duty to retreat or accept the risk of loosing their own life.

    Correct on both accounts.

    Don't be so sure. America took obama off Chicago's hands. Just goes to prove there's a buyer dumb enough for anything

    I don't see it getting changed. A friend of mine is a state representative and he said that there is not enough support for the idea to even bring it up for discussion.

    As for Detroit... We need to keep it. It is home to the Wings, Tigers, and the Detroit Auto Show. Everything else sucks... but we can't lose those!

    Windsor could probably clean DaTwa up pretty quickly. Canadians don't mess around with guns...after putting all the illegal gun-toting felons in jail, DaTwa's population would probably drop to about 10 people.

    Wouldn't it be funny if any of these "reviews" of SYG laws ended up recommending making them even better?

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
