If the "stand your ground" laws are so bad for the country, as you say in your editorial, why is the homicide rate in Miami and other Florida cities so much less than in Baltimore ("A chance for justice," April 13). More than twice as many people, many of them black youths, are killed each year in Baltimore than in Miami.

Where is the outrage? Letting only the bad guys have guns does not seem to work.
