florida's new "stand your ground" law
people travelling to florida for the very first time from non-gun cultures really must applaud the hard-lobbying nra for getting this bill of madness passed into law on saturday.
how about this from marrion hammer, a former president of the national rifle association: "they can't any more tell you that you can't have a firearm in your vehicle," ms. hammer said of private businesses, "than they can tell you that you can't have an umbrella or a pair of sunglasses."
yes. i'm very, very concerned about travelling to florida for next year's winter music conference, and the possibilty of getting into a confrontation with some drunk prick in a bar, who in an act of desperate self-preservation, reaches into his pocket and pulls out a pair of sunglasses he earlier stole that day from a vehicle parked at his place of work.......
