Other nicknames for laws that are based on the Castle Doctrine include the Defense of Habitation Law, and "Make My Day" law. Either the "stand your ground" laws present a deadly threat to innocent citizens when improperly applied, or specific jurisdictions can mishandle the cases as was done in Seminole County, Florida. Will the mishandling and improper application of the law in the Trayvon Martin case lead to Federal intervention, changes in enforcement, or improved legislation at the state level?

Oh come on. Zimmerman is a liar, a racist, and a sociopath who stalked and murdered an underaged child who presented no threat to anyone. States rights is racial code wording. There are no states rights that sanction murder.
