Repeal "Shoot First" ACTION

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: corruption, americans, ALEC, ethics, shoot first, stand your ground, labor, money, corporate )

- 1735 days ago -
Instead of balancing the value of each human life against the legitimate right of self defense, Shoot First gives the legal stamp of approval to a "shoot first, ask questions later" mentality.

This had nothing to do with stand you ground, being escalated immediately to self defense.

Only takes zip codes...

This is 'justifying' murder, even to those who actually don't get away with it, and all humans, regardless of country, should be able to protest this lunacy.

I guess that you have to be a US resident to sing but this is very interesting. I'm for the the right to self-defense but there must be a greater control of arms, for exapmple if you have in the house people with mental health problems or previous convictions for violent crimes. And especially doesn't make any sense to hold assault weapons. What the hell are you doing with an M60 at home??? On the contrary, unfortunately here in Italy if you shoot a criminal who enters in your house at night they arrest you. Who have too much, who have nothing!!!! Thanks for sharing Nancy.!

Noted and I have managed to sign this and another one the other day. Thanks. When you live in a country were guns are not carried by people, it seems SO crazy! How CAN this practice every make people safe? This law defies all logic and just re-enforces the old adage that 'The Law Is An Ass!"

This reminds me of a case in I think Texas a few years ago, when a British tourist had a car break down and knocked on someones door after dark. Without waiting to see what the tourist wanted, the homeowner shot him dead - and was exonerated by the courts!
