Well yea, you pull out a single phrase what I said and take it away from the context of my entire post-- then yes. But the juxtaposition in which I was specifically speaking about owning a gun coupled with the stand your own ground law was my point from the start.

You can't control people's prejudices. A racist person is going to be racist. But knowing that-- you cannot allow the human element to be such a factor in life or death situation. You can control who is allowed to own a gun along with the parameters in which they are allowed to use it.
The stand your own ground law allows citizens to combine their personal feelings with a dangerous yet now defensible action
Then followed by the 2nd time I explained what I meant again by immediately refuting resnor's interpretation.
SYG law leaves to much to interpretation. Who is to say when I FEEL THREATENED? And furthermore, how could you even prove if I felt threatened or not?
No no, I'm not saying specifically control who owns firearms. I'm not saying you try to figure out who is racist and deny them a gun. In fact, I said the exact opposite.
I'm saying that the stand your own ground law assumes that some dummy isn't going to feel comfortable enough to go following people around the neighborhood.
The law assumes that we will be responsible 100% of the time. I say 100% of the time because we're talking about a matter of life and death so with 100% accuracy is exactly the only way it is effective. Unfortunately the quickest way to shatter that 100% is for a 1 lone knucklehead to do something like this. It completely ruins it.
