    Yes it was, even the Mayor of Seminole County where it happened mentioned it, that's actually how it became a mainstream political term. I even had to do a paper on it.
    Did you fail your paper?

    The defendant, George Zimmerman, claims he was restrained at the time of the shooting, thus allowing no option for retreat and making 'stand your ground' irrelevant to the case.

    In theory I agree they should have gun control legislation similar to that which we have here.

    In practice I think it's a case of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted. Even if all new firearms were subject to tighter restrictions, it would take at least a generation - if not two - for it to have an appreciable impact, IMO.
    You mean legislatively preventing new guns from arriving or being manufactured?
    If so everyone knows that's the logical answer and pretty much only effective resolution!
    But it's just cowardice on the gov't's part.

    Lol at having to use wikipedia.
    And no I aced it.

    Anyway I'll just accept you don't know what you're talking about because you probably don't, you're another speculator. Stand Your Ground was the main defense; the reason it WAS "relevant" is BECAUSE he claims to have been restrained. Stand Your Ground is a Floridian extension to self defense, dum-dum.

    Oh yea back to the actual thread question lol
    it would be stupid for guns to be banned right.
    The situation is, though, that instead of banned, simply legislated, right?

    However the issue here is the US WON'T legislate guns properly.

    Provide evidence that it was used as the defence.

    Provide evidence it wasn't, smart ass.
    Before I bother tell me which sources you find credible because people like you play dumb and will call the sky pink when everyone is pointing that it's blue.

    That's your opinion
    It's the opinion of millions, if not the majority

    I already said they're not legislated properly. I never said they weren't legislated :hmmm:

    I already have, you have provided nothing. Therefore you either don't have any or you don't want to be proven wrong.

    That, plus the need for robust background checks / firearms licenses for those who own them.

    And the outlawing of concealed carry, with or without a permit.

    do you think guns should be banned in America?
    No. Every family should have a gun to protect themselves from criminals and government tyranny.
    A gun is what separates Americans' individuality and free will compared to the rest of the world.

    I think Ben Shapiro makes the case very well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rE0Z2k6BJI0
