State senator neglected her duty on Stand Your Ground vote

Indiana state Sen. Karen Tallian states that the reason she voted for Stand Your Ground legislation in 2006 was because of an argument, by person or persons unknown, that the law would not change.

Indiana law from earlier times!

Now the senator has decided that this is an unreasonable law. The question is, if it is an unreasonable law now, why did you vote for it then?

The answer is that the senator was probably not doing the job that she was hired to do. The senator just went with the flow and neglected to research the pros and cons of the Stand Your Ground law and now is trying to distance herself from a very volatile situation, which she is partially responsible for through her vote!
