House to Vote on Trayvon Amendment

Back the truck up…

‘Shoot-first’ laws have already cost too many lives. In Florida alone, deaths due to self-defense have tripled since the law was enacted.

Disregard the fact that the Trayvon Martin incident is not a “stand your ground” type shooting (it was more of an “on your back, getting your head bashed in” shooting), isn’t that EXACTLY the point of the law?  To allow a citizen to defend himself against an outlaw, without the need to fear criminal prosecution unless the shooting is not justified?  Of course deaths due to self-defense have increased, people can refuse to be victimized. The media and politicians have been so incredibly irresponsible in the coverage and commentary of this shooting, I do not possess the language to properly convey my level of contempt and disgust.  In the spirit of Rahm “never let a crisis go to waste” Emanuel, the ticks and leeches in DC are trying to capitalize on the Martin shooting, ever in search of ways to undermine the citizen’s ability to protect himself from their constituents.
