McCain Throws In With The Democrats, Again

Senator McCain--the one that would have been President in 2008 if he hadn't sabotaged his running mate--had once again thrown in with the Democrats on the Travyn Martin verdict in questioning whether states should have "stand your ground" laws. Those laws reverse a modern judicial trend of requiring a person who is attacked to retreat (i.e., run away) if they have an opportunity. With the much larger Martin on top of him, slamming his head into the concrete, Zimmerman never had an opportunity to retreat, and the Florida law was not an issue at his trial.

McCain also says that he can understand why people think the Zimmerman verdict was wrong and that he isn't attacking the Second Amendment (which the Supreme Court has stated relates to the right of self-defense).
