Media Ignores Obama Co-Sponsored Stand Your Ground Law
The media has ignored the fact that in 2004, then Illinois State Senator, Barack Obama co-sponsored S.B. 2386, which actually broadened that state’s stand your ground law! Last Friday, the President made comments that stand your ground laws are sending the wrong message as a society.
But in 2004, it was a different story? The law Mr. Obama co-sponsored shielded the person who was attacked from being sued in civil court by perpetrators or their estates, when a stand your ground defense is used in protecting his or her own person, dwelling or other property.
Very interesting. Your Thoughts?
