I wouldn't count on it. Some people in this country are really violent. Instead of looking at self-defense as something that may have to be done under very limited circumstances, they want the ability to kill someone who upsets them and pushes them around.
It's so ridiculous. What if someone walks up to me and pushes me, and tells me they want to kick my butt? Should I pull out a gun and just kill them? What kind of uncivilized, barbaric society would even condone such a thing? Stand your ground laws don't even require the person to make an attempt to escape! I feel threatened, therefore I kill. That sounds like a wild animal.
I've mentioned this before, but when I took martial arts, the instructors always told us self-defense was NOT about killing another person. Self-defense is about protecting yourself, and learning self-control. You try to run before anything. If the person continues to pursue you, you attack up to the point that they can no longer chase you. It would have to be the most EXTREME circumstances that one person should take the life of another in an act of self-defense.
In the words of Martin Luther King Jr, "Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
