When Dick Durbin, then Judiciary Committee Chairman, uttered these words at a U. S. Senate hearing on stand your ground laws in 2013, hopes were high that finally the nation would agree, and that the federal government would initiate steps to push state lawmakers to change stand your ground laws. It hasn’t happened yet. The danger is still real.
Summarizing stand your ground law, Durbin’s opening statement “It appears to me that stand your ground laws are an invitation to confrontation” deserves to be a tweet of the month.
