  •  It is no longer illegal to shoot people in Florida (0+ / 0-)

    As a matter of fact it is not illegal to shoot people in most states.
    Shooting in self-defense in certain situations is perfectly legal in most of the country.

    Sure

    At some point, you have to engage with people, and work on the root causes, the poverty, drug addiction, mental health, child neglect and abuse, and the civil and ethical education of children.
    Let's fund those things.

    Where modifying the law comes into play is drawing the lines more clearly between legal action and illegal action.

    If we need a specific law that says, "No person who has made a credible threat against another person's life shall be issued a permit to carry a gun, then we should pass that law."

    If we need a law that says, "Negligent handling of a firearm is cause for criminal prosecution." Then we should pass that law.

    Laws are the tools we use to preserve the social contract.

    Take back the House in 2014!!!! ( 50-state strategy needed)
