We can stand it

Governor Henry has signed a "stand your ground" law, which expands the areas where a person can use deadly force to stop a crime in progress or, in his judgment, about to be in progress.

There are, admittedly, some people whose judgment might not be the most trustworthy in such matters, but I tend to doubt the scary scenarios invented by the usual cluster of anti-gun groups, simply because there's no scenario they can imagine which isn't scary.

The law takes effect on the first of November, which is just as well, inasmuch as there will be a lot of people in masks and such the night before.
