Stand Your Ground? Texas man kills teacher over noise complaint | The Raw Story thought this was interesting... I'm not sure how stand your ground applies to somebody else's property -- if the story is correct -- particularly when you're the one with the gun. I found it a bit amusing that he acts alarmed, in talking to 9-1-1, by the other guy's threat of coming back out of the house with his own gun, and talks about the other guy escalating things. This is a noise complaint -- involving firearms seems like a bad idea.
