Today, Colin Ferguson (the Canadian actor, not the mass murderer), announced his opposition to “Stand Your Ground” laws.

Ferguson, best known for playing Sheriff Jack Carter on “Eureka,”  didn’t come right out and say it … but it’s clear enough what he was getting at.


According to, the laws are in place in more than two dozen states. They allow people to “use deadly force if they think their life is being threatened.”

And what, exactly, is so terrible about that?


Ferguson has deleted the tweet and apologized for it. He says he should have said the laws need to be updated, not repealed.
