Democrats opposed to the Missouri bill called it a “perfect storm” of lowered standards for the use of deadly force and an invitation for people to be armed without responsible controls. The measure was enacted by the Republicans, despite strong public opposition and warnings about the threat to public safety from the state Police Chiefs Association. 
Everytown for Gun Safety, one of the groups fighting the gun lobby, noted that stand your ground laws result in disproportionate harm to communities of color. […]

Mayor de Blasio:There is “no threat against NYC from any terror organization.” And yet he’s calls it “an intentional act.” An intentional bombing is terror. Clueless and complicit.
