If state Sen. Karen Tallian (D-Portage) had another chance to vote on Indiana’s Stand Your Ground law, she would not vote for it again (Post-Tribune). Tallian told the audience at a Stand Your Ground rally Saturday at the Porter County Courthouse that in 2006, “When we passed this law initially, there was no discussion about it.” In light of recent incidents around the country, “We need to reevaluate this,” she said. She voted for the law because she was persuaded by the arguments that it wouldn’t change Indiana law, based on a 1877 case law that allowed a similar defense. “I don’t like that people have now twisted that” into a machismo of “you’re not going to make me move,” she said.
