I would love to see the rationale that says the victim of aggression has a DUTY to retreat rather than face that threat head on.

in typical fashion the democrats are trying to ignore proper procedure and ignore the whole process of how a law is enacted. I will not go into giving a complete civic lesson now but let if suffice to say that unless the republicans allow this nonsense to proceed it shall remain a circus like act for the media to peddle to the ignorant masses.
it is a shame that the schools don't teach basic civics anymore, so few know how our government is supposed to function, if they did they wouldn't tolerate the garbage the left offers as governance.
Ellison is a two-bit liberal with his own agenda to stump for. Minneapolis 'voters' who elected him should be embarrassed, but I doubt they even understand how government actually works, much less what this creep is doing on their behalf.
"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
The media has so much sway aver the general public it is scary! A portion of the people believe EVERYTHING they read or hear. Most news is biased to suit the views of the producers and these people never even consider another point of view. Gee, look who they elected pres. last time. 'Nuff said.
First of all, how is killing 3 times as many scumbags a bad thing?
And if you want to take away grant money, fine. The state is saving A LOT of money by not having to have trials and then house these drains on society anymore.
Second, I love how it is in the name of Trayvon, when his attacker is on trial for MURDER. Clearly the law did not just give him blanket immunity to "shoot first." So how does this even apply to the TM/GZ case? These guys just make me shake my head and sigh/chuckle to myself.

I think it would be found unconstitutional if it ever passed....... "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness" , and the 2nd amendment rights...........
So... only the BG can show up with a gun ? Seems that's where we were before, and it didn't work out too well.

Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
So have crimes and as long as people are defending their families and themselves I won't shed a tear for the perps."'Shoot-first' laws have already cost too many lives. In Florida alone, deaths due to self-defense have tripled since the law was enacted.
Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.
