And what shall we do, if anything, about Florida's "stand your ground" law? I mean, Stevie Wonder, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, says he's boycotting us so long as it's on the books. "Stand your ground" may not have been a card Zimmerman's defense team played, but never mind.
Conventional wisdom - what's driving the renewed-scrutiny bandwagon just now - claims the law is the methanol racing fuel that explodes on contact with minor disagreements. This presupposes the statute plays little or no role in restraining Florida's bullies, hotheads, louts or hair-trigger personalities who, pre-"stand your ground," were free to brandish intimidation with little expectation of reprisal from the intimidated.
