Massad Ayoob talking about stand your ground and 21 foot rule
Massad Ayoob, Firearms Trainer, author of "In the Gravest Extreme". Since the tragic shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Florida's Stand Your Ground law has come under intense scrutiny. Florida governor Rick Scott is presently forming a task force to reexamine that state's law. Critics argue that such laws have led to shootouts over petty disputes and have hampered police investigations with a sweeping grant of legal immunity. Supporters of the Stand Your Ground law say it does not apply to the Martin case and that such laws merely protect those who use a firearm in self-defense from prosecution and financially ruinous litigation. In this video Captain Ayoob discusses what these laws actually cover and what has happened in the 24 states that have enacted them since 2005.
