President Obama is uncomfortable with the idea that an armed citizen facing a violent attack doesn’t have to retreat if he/she can do so. “If we’re sending a message as a society in our communities that someone who is armed potentially has the right to use those firearms even if there’s a way for them to exit from a situation, is that really going to be contributing to the kind of peace and security and order that we’d like to see?” (This despite the fact that Obama Voted to Strengthen Illinois’s Stand Your Ground Law in 2004.) Yes, well, never mind the “good for society” part. Or the legal aspect. Do you believe that you should retreat in a violent attack if you can? Is there a moral mandate to at least try to GTFO when facing the prospect of a defensive gun use?
