Because the ‘Gang of Black Racists’ (you know who they are) and the ‘small but vocal black militant minority’ did NOT get the verdict they wanted in the George Zimmerman case, charter member Jesse Jackson is now calling for a total economic boycott of Florida if we don’t get rid of our ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws. I call that blackmail and that is an arrestable offense as blackmail encompasses more than just the extortion of money, it also means to try and force or coerce someone into a particular action or to force someone to make a particular statement.
And that’s just what Jackson is doing by demanding that Florida repeal ‘Stand Your Ground’ or else…he’s blackmailing the state…just wonder if he’ll pull this blackmail on the other 22 states that have some form of ‘Stand Your Ground’ in place.
Thankfully, our Governor Rick Scott (finally he did something right) did NOT agree to a special legislative session to consider “The Trayvon Martin Civil Rights Act,” an act which includes an end to police profiling and the repeal of our ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws…laws put on the books in 2005. This action was demanded by the group Dream Defenders, an activist group that has literally ‘occupied’ Governor Scott’s office since last Tuesday.
And in the other 22 states (Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia) with ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws there does NOT appear to be any intention by their state legislatures to repeal or change the laws already on the books…laws which simply eliminate a person’s so-called ‘duty’ to retreat in the face of a serious physical threat. In fact, some states are actually trying to add some form of ‘Stand Your Ground’ to their state’s laws because their residents are demanding it as crime statistics increase.
And certain statistics do increase with ‘Stand Your Ground’ but with a caveat. Since the law was enacted here in Florida, justifiable homicides have increased from a yearly average of 13.2 between 2001 and 2005 to an average of 42 between 2006 and 2012, including a record 66 in 2012, according to figures recently released by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. But…and this is very important…if ‘Stand Your Ground’ was NOT in place those justifiable homicides would have instead resulted in the MURDERS of those who now became the survivors of violent crime…became survivors because of ‘Stand Your Ground’.
And, whether Obama and crew like it or NOT in states with ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws public consensus is towards greater gun rights NOT lesser gun rights. And the states that have ‘castle doctrine’ laws…the right to defend one’s self with deadly force in the home…want to expand those laws to apply to businesses as well.

Now add into Jackson’s bloviations the bloviations of AG Eric Holder, who said last week at an NAACP convention in Orlando that ‘Stand your Ground’ “senselessly expands the concept of self-defense and increases the possibility of deadly confrontations” and you just know where his allegiances lie for Eric Holder does NOT get that self-defense in any form is just the act of defending one’s person when physically attacked…and that means the use of deadly force is allowed if need arises. He doesn’t get that it’s either the assailant who survives or the intended victim who survives, and I sure hope it’s the intended victim who survives…but I’m NOT sure Holder and his ilk wish the same.
As Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action says, “self-defense is not a concept, it’s a fundamental human right,” and how right he is.
In fact, even according to the Holy Bible it is NOT murder to defend oneself or one’s loved ones or property, for self-defense is a God-given right that God allows and encourages. In the Scriptures, while God does NOT outwardly encourage people to be either ‘hawks’ or ‘doves’ per se, when dealing with self-defense God just asks that they be reasonable. For example, Genesis 9:5-6 states, “…Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed…” which some Biblical scholars interpret to mean that self-defense is indeed allowed, and the Zimmerman case fits these words perfectly for Trayvon Martin pounded George Zimmerman’s head into the pavement drawing blood allowing Zimmerman to draw Trayvon’s blood in self-defense.
And Proverbs 25:26 states that “A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well.” And wouldn’t he (Zimmerman) be faltering before the wicked (Trayvon because he was anything but the sweet innocent child the media purported him to be) if he chose to be unarmed and unable to resist the assault threatening his life.
So simply put, ‘Stand Your Ground’ is in reality people defending their own lives when the police are NOT around to do so…and that is a very good thing as ‘We the People’ will NOT allow ourselves to be victims anymore…at least in 22 states we won’t. Nor will we allow ourselves to be dictated to by 13% of the population (blacks make up but 13% of America’s population and the ‘small but vocal militant black minority’ make up but a small percentage of that 13%) who expect the other 87% to cater to and bend to their will simply because they do NOT like a verdict reached according to the rule of law, and because they refuse to accept the fact that 93% of the murders of young black men are committed NOT by white men but are committed by other young black men themselves.
But NO matter if one looks at ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws in secular terms, statistical terms, or in religious terms, the bottom line remains that the ‘Gang of Black Racists’ and the ‘small but vocal militant black minority’ who are pushing this unwanted national debate over ‘Stand Your Ground’ is NOT doing so because of ‘Stand Your Ground’ as written, but is doing so to push their leftist agenda of taking our guns away as Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s ultimate political goal is the repealing of our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
And that is something ‘We the People’ will most assuredly NOT sit idly by and let happen.
