Protestors took to cities throughout the Nation Wednesday to denounce “Stand Your Ground” laws as they marked the one-year anniversary of the shooting death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin. One woman in Atlanta made remarks that stood out as particularly disturbing to 2nd Amendment advocates in an interview with CBS.
Against a backdrop of anti-gun and pro-Trayvon signs, one protestor — who was wearing a President Barack Obama hat — said she’d rather be murdered than defend herself against an attack.
“Self-defense is not an option. It is not an option,” she said.
“But what if someone’s trying to kill you?” asked CBS Atlanta’s Christopher King.
“They’ll just have to kill me, Christopher,” she responded.
The woman’s willingness to be killed rather than use a gun in self-defense is nearly as disturbing as “Shotgun” Joe Biden’s latest self-defense advice in an interview with Field and Stream magazine.
“Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door,” Biden said.
