Rational though appears to have fled in the face of demagogues and revolutionaries here in Florida. As such, the political leaders of this state are now “examining” self defense and firearms laws to see what can be done to restrict the individual’s right to live.
On April 23, 2012, the Cato Institute held a forum on “stand your ground” laws and recorded a video of the event. Among the speakers was Massad Ayoob. Ayoob is probably known to most people in the firearms industry as he is a recognized expert on self-defense and firearms, prolific author and long-time police officer.
Other speakers include Clayton E. Cramer, Tim Lynch and Steven Jansen. Each of the speakers offer a different view on stand your ground laws, but anyone who has spent much time reading or talking to Ayoob probably knows where he comes down on the issue.
A video on the entire forum is here, but if you want to see just Ayoob’s comments, the folks at Gun Digest edited the video down, which can be viewed by clicking here.
