RALEIGH, N.C. - The North Carolina state legislature passed the nation's first actual "Shoot First" law yesterday. In the last year, fifteen other states have enacted laws expanding the right of self-defense, allowing crime victims to use deadly force in situations in which the use of such force might formerly have subjected them to prosecution for murder. Supporters call them "stand your ground" laws. Opponents call them "shoot first" laws.
North Carolina appears to have come up with an innovative legal solution to this divide that may, almost incredibly, satisfy both anti-constitutional gun-control loonies and gun-toting law-and-order nuts. The legislation, which is called "The Shoot First; No, Please,You Shoot First Law," forbids the prosecution of anyone involved in the use of deadly force as long as he or she gives the other person the unhindered opportunity to shoot him or her first.
