It's also important to note (as I understand it) that Stand Your Ground is a part of a self-defense law. So it's one of the ways that you can use a self-defense defense. But just because you used self defense, doesn't mean you used Stand Your Ground. Are you confused? Me too. Don't take my word for it. Look up your state and its laws, then states you travel to and their laws, then states you have family in and their laws. If this affects one American injustly, it affects us all.
Another article breaking down the Stand Your Ground States:
Here's the list:
- Florida (where my little brother lives)
- Pennsylvania (where I now live)
- Illinois (Where most of y'all live. Wait, what?)
- Arizona (where my other little brother lives)
- North Carolina
- New Hampshire*
- Washington* (where Ishea now lives)
More on this tomorrow.
