The 'Stand Your Ground' law applies to specific cases

Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' law has come into the media spotlight several times. It is imperative that anyone who is facing a weapons charge understands how the Stand Your Ground law might impact the defense options they have.

There are several components to the Stand Your Ground law that you should understand. In Florida, the Stand Your Ground law could prevent a person from having to stand trial at all. It isn't necessarily an affirmative defense, so be sure that you think carefully about what you're going to do.

Another point to the Stand Your Ground law is that you have a duty to retreat if possible. This means that you can't just go randomly shooting people when you have another way out of the situation that doesn't involve using a weapon.

The Stand Your Ground law in this state applies to a variety of situations. It has been applied in situations where a person tries to enter a residence, but it has also been tried in cases involving other locations.

There are some individuals who think that this law provides an easy way out for people who want to shoot before they know what's going on. The opponents of the law have put up a strong fight against it, but they have been unsuccessful thus far. Those who agree that the law is a good thing are quick to remind everyone that protecting yourself is a fundamental right in this country.

If you are facing a weapons charge, be sure that you consider all options for your case. You should create a strategy that accurately represents your side of the matter.
