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 law is in essence a 'License to Kill'. We need your help in having it removed. Please sign now.
