Stand your ground or stand down?

A group of Democrat representatives in Lansing earlier this week introduced a repeal of Michigan’s version of the now-famous “stand your ground” law at the center of Florida’s Trayvon Martin case.

The bill, House Bill 5644, would repeal the state’s “Self Defense Act” of 2006, but would not impact the state’s “Castle Doctrine,” which allows people to protect themselves and their belongings in their own homes.
