Texas signs new self-defense by gun law – Yahoo! News

Good law or bad?

In my opinion, this is a bad law, cause this is an imperfect world. People will abuse it, and someone will get killed that shouldn’t have. Is it worth it, to have innocent people killed?
Yes, I know, what about the guilty people? I have no answer for that.
I do hope they have to go through some training and/or classes, to let them know their rights and how to handle situations besides using a gun.

    >Before that law, it was illegal to kill innocent people. With that law, it is illegal to kill innocent people. The law only applies to using self-defense against guilty people. I support self-defense.

  2. >I support self-defense as well, however I think the potential of abuse is to strong for it to be a law that you can kill people cause of a no retreat law. And, you state you support using self-defense against guilty people. Who decides who is guilty?

    Here is an example why I think it’s a bad law:You are driving along, and get hit from behind at a stoplight. You get out, mad as all can be, and start walking towards the car behind you. The lady who drove the car is out, and sees you mad (how does she know you aren’t drunk, on drugs, fast/bad temper, having a bad day, etc), and is intimidated. She pulls out her gun and shoots you.
