Hillary Clinton Calls For Stand Your Ground Laws To Be “Rewritten”

posted on August 20, 2015

Surrounded by armed Secret Service agents at a town hall event in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton criticized “Stand Your Ground” laws, which allow lawful citizens in imminent danger of death or grave bodily harm to meet force with force against criminal attack. 

“I just think a lot of these ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws need to be rewritten,” Clinton said. “If somebody is breaking into your home and you are in imminent danger, or you go to your door and you see something that is deeply concerning, well, first thing you should do is call 911,” Clinton said. 

When you have 24/7/365 taxpayer-funded Secret Service protection for life, like Clinton has, it’s easy to dismiss the security concerns of “ordinary” Americans. But the truth is that less than 5 percent of the 911 calls dispatched to police are made quickly enough for officers to stop a crime or arrest a suspect.
