Americans ask to be protected by changing the actual “stand your ground” law


Many members of Senat think “it is clearly time for ‘stand your ground’ to be carefully reviewed” as the Democrat Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois said. On the other part, there is at the same time a prudent attitude in Senate regarding this subject, because the law is acting in similar forms in 22 states and it should be the case to adopt  contrary dispositions at the federal level. (If Florida was, in 2005, the first state adopting the “stand your grand “ law, Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virgin followed soon this model).
A fact was at least established by consensus: these laws encourage confrontations escalated into deadly violence and unnecessary tragedies. The message transmitted by the both bereaved women can be the sensitive motivation for reconsidering the law.
