John McCain's call for Arizona to review its "Stand Your Ground" law

Add McCain's name to the list of people who mistakenly think that the Zimmerman trial had something to do with Stand Your Ground laws.
Arizona Sen. John McCain says his home state should review its "stand-your-ground" law in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
The Republican senator said he trusted the jury's judgment in the case, but added Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that the law "may be something that needs to be reviewed."
Does he think that applies to Arizona?
"Yes, I do and I’m confident that members of the Arizona legislature will," McCain said. . . .
Well, the Republican governor in Arizona doesn't agree with McCain.
"I support stand your ground," Republican Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said last week. . . .
It doesn't appear as if any states are going to move undo these laws.

At least Ted Cruz understands the issues here.

Not surprising. John McCain is a statist, and statism is antithetical to liberty. A tool as empowering as a firearm that you can actually carry and use to defend yourself is very liberating - and very dangerous to statism.

Another RINO idiot who sadly represents my State and keeps appeasing the democrats.

Another case of politics overriding facts, and all in the name of keeping one's position in government viable.
