Stand Your Ground Law, OVERKILL?

 Stand Your Ground Law, OVERKILL?


{{{If self-defense is sufficient, they argue, "stand your ground" may, literally, be legislative overkill.}}}

Do you ever feel like you are the only one, oh just hanging around, with at minimal, A HALF A BRAIN?
Good grief, from the get-go this nasty Florida (along with many other states) law was OVERKILL, “literally”!  
The NRA is an organization made up mainly (it appears anyway) of very frightened human beings. They fear every unknown in their life, which is of course most everything. No one can count on the next minute, hour, day, month or year to be without danger or mishap; most of us carry this thought way, way back in our minds, deeply tucked away, safely hidden within the brain, so we can behave normally and act unafraid most of the time. But with the card carrying people of the NRA, this dark thought is up front, right beneath their forehead, at the tip of their frontal lobes. In actuality, they're like frighten little children and cannot feel grown-up unless they carry a gun around and have an arsenal of weapons "LEGALLY" within their homes.
The NRA, along with its lobbies and members, get outrageous and dangerous laws passed like the STAND YOUR GROUND or SHOOT FIRST LAW, because they can, they're a large institution with many big bucks (ALEC) which enables them to buy our legislative leaders and turn them into puppets that they can play with...
(That is, when they’re not playing with their guns!)
I’m not sure the whole reason why they want to push laws that force us to live in a menacing environment
but one thing for sure it involves
BIG 's
because they have these oversized greedy pockets to fill, and they do not give a RAT'S ASS who gets hurt while they fill them.  
It's !

ALEC Exposed Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rights. These so-called "model bills" reach into almost every area of American life and often directly benefit huge corporations. In ALEC's own words, corporations have "a VOICE and a VOTE" on specific changes to the law that are then proposed in your state. DO YOU? MORE HERE

In the last few weeks, an awakening has occurred. We have always known that public opinion comes down on the side of reasonable measures concerning gun control in America. (Here and here)We have also always known that too many of our elected leaders have chosen to ignore the support for reasonable gun control measures in deference to an organization called the NRA whose uber power and influence in America has led to the passage of gun laws which have made us all less safe instead of safer as is the job of our leaders.

Who is accountable for the culture in America where guns have become more important than people? This article makes it clear:
"How many students have to be shot to death in their schools before this country has a serious discussion about guns? Are the 10 who have been gunned down just since Feb. 27 enough?
The question of the constitutional right to own guns is irrelevant here—even if you believe that the Constitution gives every last American the right to own a firearm (which The Times editorial board does not, but many other reasonable people do).
There is simply no defending the many states that allow people not just to keep guns in their homes, but to buy an unlimited number of weapons each month, and to carry guns, concealed or visible, into public areas, including schools and churches and libraries. The culture of permissiveness is now so out of control that the city attorney in Tampa has said he cannot stop people from carrying guns into the security perimeter that will be established around the site of the Republican convention in August."
There is no defense for what is going on in our country. But yet, the NRA, its' bought and paid for politicians, the entire gun lobby, those involved in ALEC, and the public (who have been lulled into complacency by the onslaught of laws they did not want but got anyway) are all responsible. But Congress and our legislators are the ones who pass the laws and make the rules. They should be making the rules, not the NRA. The guys with the guns should not be making the rules: MORE: http://www.commongunsense.com/2012/04/accountability-and-responsibility-for.html
