Comes as No Suprise, No Surprise at All

Last year, a young fellow named Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer named George Zimmerman.  Zimmerman used Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law as a justification for his actions (I believe he's since backed off that, and is going with straight self-defense).

Since there's a potential for abuse of the SYG law, Governor (p)Rick Scott commissioned a panel to review the law.  As I recall, I didn't hold out much hope for any revision or repeal of the law, as the commission was chaired by the person who wrote the law in the first place, and the other eighteen members were all supporters of it.

Well, to the utter and complete surprise of absolutely No One, the commission handed down its decision.

And that decision was . . . drum roll, please . . . envelope, please; thank you Brigitte . . .

No change is required in the law, so it's all good!

Needless to say, this news has made the NRA in Florida spontaneously ejaculate in their pants, spraying DNA everywhere.  In the abstract, this is not a bad thing; every drop of semen from these noisome nuisances that is mopped up and cast into a trash can or flushed down the commode can only but improve the overall gene pool.

Until, of course, one of their family members or loved ones is on the receiving end of the SYG.
