Litigation: FL & SCOTUS

We have a report that the Florida Supreme Court has now ruled that a claim of a “stand your ground” defense shifts the burden of proof back to the victim. In other words, he would be guilty until it is proved that stand-your-ground applies, which apparently is NOT what the statute indicates.

The US Supreme Court has declined to review a lower court decision upholding San Francisco’s law requiring that handguns be stored in a lockbox or secured with a trigger lock. The vote was 7-2, with Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia objecting.
Justice Thomas said his fellow justices were derelict in not accepting cases in which challengers say state and local restrictions on gun ownership and use infringe on the Second Amendment rights recognized by the Supreme Court in the 2008 Heller case.

I say that SCOTUS is ALWAYS derelict in not accepting cases without citing specific justification to deny them. No one should have the choice of simply not doing their job and not being disciplined or fired.
