No it shouldn’t.

Sigh. We should have seen this coming, I guess:

Shooting should spur review of law

Really? Because of one isolated incident in another state in which all the facts are not even in yet? No. I’m sorry, but just…no. It’s not even clear that George Zimmerman was covered by the SYG law. And yeah, police may well be trained in conflict deescalation, but that doesn’t mean the average citizen doesn’t know anything about it. In fact, unless I miss my guess, that’s one of the main things they teach you in the class to get your permit. And it’s something that’s discussed by gunnies, well, all the time.

And why doesn’t anyone talk about the good shoots? Why hasn’t anyone brought up the case of, say, Thomas Baker and Carlos Mustelier? (The CSGV tried to ride that one, but as everyone who pays attention knows, it failed miserably.) And how about all the people who, well, stood their ground with their guns and came away without firing a shot? Sorry, E-N editorialists, but once again you’re on the wrong side.

    What I’m trying to figure out is why — if the Stand Your Ground law even applies to the Zimmerman case — that anti-gunners would want a review of it. Is it because the law isn’t working (in their eyes), or is it because they think it is working? Because if they want it reviewed and possibly repealed, what message does that send to the bad guys out there?

    Neither, in my opinion. It’s because they see self-defense as wrong. I just can’t believe anything else.
