When Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) announced his retirement early last year, an onslaught of Republican hopefuls began vying for the open seat.

E.J. Dionne, Jr., in his Washington Post piece entitled “Repeal stand-your-ground laws,” presents us with yet another example of the utter inability of too many journalists to grasp the relatively simple and straightforward legal concept commonly referred to as “Stand-Your-Ground.” Humorously, the first paragraph of his piece had me utterly convinced that Dionne…
