Finney wants review of ‘stand your ground’ law

Though she knows it is a long shot, Rep. Gail Finney, D-Wichita, wants the state to revisit its “stand your ground” gun law. “It needs to be looked at and reviewed very closely,” Finney told the Topeka Capital-Journal. She contends that the law “has so many loopholes” that defendants could take advantage of in cases in which self-defense is murky. She also is concerned that it could be used against people who look a certain way. “I’ve often spoke about racial profiling in Kansas,” Finney said. “The problem is really prevalent throughout Kansas, and it seems like it often fell on deaf ears.”
