even if they do expand it to include the ability to use a warning shot, i still don't agree either that they are a good idea. but still, it's a step in the right direction, that they are looking to expand the power of the SYG laws, instead of repealing them.
and IIRC, Marissa Alexander left the residence and got a gun and then returned. i can't see being in fear for her life under those circumstances. and she was also offered a three year sentence, but wanted her day in court. she deserves exactly the sentence she got due to her stupidity.
i'll just bet this ruling is chapping some butts now!
