Stand Your Ground Law Open To Nuance

Try to guess what the mitigating factors were here!

***Update*** I'm grateful to the anonymous person who posted the text of the law (and then curiously, deleted it) to demonstrate that, in fact, stand your ground doesn't apply to domestic disputes because assailants who have a right to be on the property (i.e. abusive spouses) are exempted. Poor John Wayne Bobbitt wouldn't have been allowed to defend himself under Stand Your Ground.
