Most Americans support ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws, national poll shows

The majority of Americans are still in favor of Stand Your Ground laws, according to a newly released poll conducted by Quinnipiac University.

Stand Your Ground laws have been protested across the country in the wake of the George Zimmerman trial — despite the fact that Zimmerman’s defense did not invoke Stand Your Ground in the second-degree murder case.

Such laws allow individuals to use reasonable force to defend themselves without an obligation to retreat.

American voters support the laws by a 13 percent margin, with 53 percent in support and 40 percent against them.
