Governor Haley Calls For SYGL Review

Posted: October 20, 2013 in Governor Haley Calls For SYGL Review, Stand Your Ground Issues

Gov. Nikki Haley: Review South Carolina’s Stand Your Ground Law

I’m calling on South Carolina to conduct a review of the state’s Stand Your Ground law.

Calling for ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws to be reviewed is a bipartisan effort. President Obama spoke out on the need for review, and prominent Republicans like Senator John McCain have joined him.

‘Stand Your Ground’ was never meant to give aggressors the opportunity to get away with murder, but unfortunately that is sometimes the case. And after Trayvon Martin’s death, even former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who signed into law the first Stand Your Ground bill in the country, said: “Stand your ground’ means ‘stand your ground.’ It doesn’t mean ‘chase after somebody who’s turned their back.'”

South Carolina should at least conduct a review and evaluation of our state’s Stand Your Ground law.

To:
The Governor of SC
The SC State Senate
The SC State House

    Z and his lawyers used the classic self-defense argument in court … not SYG … Haley should know that … so I have to wonder who or what driving this statement … Federal coercion? Some Lib inside state government have something on her? Maybe using this topic to defuse some race politics issue (we water down our SYGL & you don’t burn down our cities?)

    This doesn’t sound like Nikki …

      It is odd. I noticed the letter referred to bipartisanship and especially Obama. Could there be some kick back here for reviewing and possibly trying to revoke SYGL? Don’t know.
