Texas Stand Your Ground Law vs. Florida Stand Your Ground Law
I am reading through Texas Penal Code 9.31, which is the use of force statute, amended in 2007 to be a Stand Your Ground law. It is noticeably more full of carefully thought out exceptions than Florida's law, and reading the case law associated with it, I can see why. Obviously, the cases that were appealed were generally persons who were convicted, but wow! What a bunch of losers! And generally convicted because of the care of Texas law on this.
