Stand your ground laws seem primarily to be justification for the unstable to act out:

Former neighbors, union: Man accused of killing teacher was 'always paranoid'

“He was a nuisance that thought he pretty much ran the street in a way,” said Jamie Johnson, one of Rodriguez’s former neighbors. “He had us paranoid because he was paranoid. We didn’t know when he was going to go off.”
....
The president of the Baytown Firefighters Union, who was asked not to go on camera by Harris County prosecutors because of the trial, told KHOU 11 News that Rodriguez was the first and only firefighter voted out of their union. The union felt he was divisive, prejudiced and always felt people were out to get him.

Johnson said Rodriguez often showed off his gun,

The guy should never have had a gun in the first place.

Staking out territory is not the same thing as standing your ground.

This man went looking for a fight and found it. So, self defence, my ass!

My God...he actually went to the PE teacher's house and shot the guy on his own property...and he is claiming "stand your ground" self defense???? He brought a gun and threatened a teacher on the teacher's driveway!! How the hell do you "stand your ground" when you are tresspassing??

There's this guy down the street from me. I don't like him or his family. I get the creeps when he drives by. I think I'll go down to his house and ask him if he's crazy. He just might be. I better take my pistol. Just in case. You know. After I wind him up I can call 911 and tell them there is a nut threatening me. Tell them he's going to get a gun. That's what he said. His word against mine. What should I do? I'm fearful for my life and I'm "standing my ground." Hey, he's coming back out. Is that a gun? Who cares? POP POP POP.... Dead men don't talk.//!

Btw, I've had a concealed carry license for many years but didn't make a habit of packing heat until recently. Now, with all the nuts believing they can provoke a confrontation and "stand their ground," I really have to. Provoking people then claiming to be the victim is an absolutely ingrained part of redneck culture. To many in Texas, you are at fault if you take exception to snide remarks about your clothes, ugly threatening stares, a fat bastard blocking your way (a favorite of A&M faculty), or sexual insults mumbled at your girlfriend. It fits with their culture of boasting and cowardice. They're the aggressors, violating the norms of civilization, but that doesn't matter anymore. All that matters now is that I'm a better shot.

And the sick ignorant bastards wonder why they get pissed on every time someone gets the chance.
