Petition to Repeal Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' Law

617 Signatures Goal: 250

Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' Law is a moral and legal outrage! This unbelievable law permits anyone, anywhere and at anytime to use lethal force against another individual with only the ground that they felt 'threatened'. Already tragedies have occurred because of this outrageous law. If something is not done Florida could become a battlefield, and other states could follow with similar laws.

Read below two instances in which this law has already resulted in tragic failures of justice and then please sign this petition to have this monstrosity removed.

    This many. Judges are making their own job hard. This is simple. Stand your ground is in violation of the 2nd amendment by removing the very first sentence. "Well regulated..." Stand your ground has zero regulations and is by such in violation of our constitution! http://www.tampabay.com/stand-your-ground-law/fatal-cases

    I will no longer support tourism in my home state. As a 30 year veteran and senior manager of the hospitality industry this was not a decision made lightly. This is needed. The 2nd amendment and self defense was perfectly fine the way it was. As a responsible gun owner I have no problem retreating when possible or showing burden of proof in a confrontation. In fact the 2nd amendment reads "a well regulated..." Stand your ground has zero regulation and by this is in violation of the 2nd amendment.
