Michigan Lawmakers Fight to End “Stand Your Ground” Law
A Michigan lawmaker is working to get the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law repealed.
State Senator Rebekah Warren recently introduced a piece of legislation aimed at putting an end to a law that allows residents to use deadly forces against another person in self defense.
Warren believes the law goes beyond common sense in protecting people who use gun violence to handle their battles.
“People are using this lack of duty to retreat as a reason to inflict harm and are sometimes not held liable for taking someone’s life. And I want to set that right in Michigan,” Warren said in a statement.
If passed, residents would still be able to engage in deadly force against anyone trespassing on their personal property.
