    The poll is definitely fixed. They just want to show a majority support for their agenda.

    Thumbs down "Stand Your Ground"

    As codified into law is harmful. Very much like the temerity with which VCDL supported the VA "Castle Doctrine" bills early on during this year's assembly they discovered that those bills would actually WEAKEN the very broad common and case law protections we enjoy.

    Anytime the government asserts to define the parameters of or consequences for an action, they chip away at those protections.

    I believe Florida's "Stand your ground" law, from a statutory standpoint, would be harmful in Virginia. It's proven, at the very least, a nuisance in Florida because it has made the Zimmerman case a political one rather than a legal one. And while neither are ideal, I would still prefer a legal contest over a political one.

    Giving you benefit of doubt.......more? You think there is exposure here? Really?

    There are ways of reporting a violation more specifically - the Open Carry Brigade is not even a sub-forum.

    Please use the ! (in triangle) at bottom left of each post or provide a link like this:

    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    It is possible for them to determine that you clicked a link to their site from this site. It is possible that they are disregarding votes that are referred from pro-gun sites. That doesn't fully explain the observed reports, but just throwing that out there for consideration.
