Zimmerman Shooter Uses "Stand Your Ground" Defense


From the AP,

An attorney for a Florida man charged with shooting at George Zimmerman said Friday that he planned to use a “Stand Your Ground” defense - the same legal strategy considered but ultimately not used by lawyers for the former neighborhood watch leader who was acquitted in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.


Are petards legal, even in Florida? The BATF usually gets touchy about something with that much explosive capacity; but it sure looks like Zimmerman just got hoist on his.
