Okay.

That's more of a separate discussion, regarding how laws should, if at all, differ in certain locations. You probably have caught on to my ideology enough by now, to know that I would disagree with any law (any place) without any obligation to retreat (depending on how it was worded) and it being justifiable homicide, especially if explicitly stated that lethal forces is allowed, without first being physically attacked.

I really don't see the relevance of this, beyond showing that people suck at making laws and that politics is full of shit, even outside of gun laws.
