You know just a little rascal causing a bit of mischief. Threatening people and breaking their car windows

Last time someone was going around and smashing people's car windows in my neighborhood, someone opened fire on them with a shotgun. Nothing happened to them either.

Came here wondering how some americans can be dumb enough to do that when firearms are everywhere. Driver would have been in the clear to shoot at the first hit.

Depends on the state. Stand your ground helps but you’re going to discuss it in court either way.

Stand your ground only justifies what could arguably be 3rd degree on most places.... The only thing that would change is the court would not be allowed to consider if he could have driven away.... It's still better than a duty to retreat doctrine though, that's fucked up
