And, as such, I'm okay with states determining where that delicate line is.
Ballistic evidence shows that Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman. Zimmerman couldn't retreat and run away like a good liberal.
I believe that's why Zimmerman's defense aren't using the "Stand Your Ground Law" as a defense.
You do know you personally responded to Zimmerman on the Politico before he was attacked by Trayvon ?
I voted no. It is within the mandate of the Constitution to protect the right of the people to bear arms. It is not within the federal government's mandate to determine which situations warrant their use.
To adequately understand my perspective on this issue, please read the remainder of my statement silently or aloud, using the voice of R. Lee Ermey.
I live in Texas. I own a semi-automatic AK-47 variant with 73-round drum magazines, a holographic red dot sight, and other assorted accessories that assure my preparedness for the impending collapse of the federal government, or zombie apocalypse as the case may be. I will defend my right in this great state to put all 73 of those rounds into anyone that threatens my life, liberty and pursuit of happiness as a sovereign individual.
However, the most fundamental liberty granted by the Constitution of this great nation is the right of any person who does not share my superior viewpoints to choose whatever inferior position suits them within their own weak and inferior subculture. The moment I deny the freedom of my worst enemy to burn my flag, berate my country, or squander their own liberties by placing the care of them solely in the hands of their state and local governments, then as ironic as it is, I become the very thing that my fellow men and women in uniform have successfully defended this country against since its inception.
If you are not in favor of freedom for your worst enemy, you are not in favor of freedom, and you will neither have it, nor deserve it.
That is all.

2.) in principle i do agree but there are some castle laws and stand your ground laws that are outside the realm of normal rights and i wouldnt want those national.
Thank you, Quazi!
Don't get me wrong - I essentially agree with these doctrines, but I also think that the mere existence of these laws create a massive amount of grey area that I really do not wish to see be categorized in convenient little boxes.
