House Democrats Try to Gut State-Level Self-Defense Laws

Media malpractice led directly to this leftwing attempt to scuttle the right of self defense.

The amendment, which would withhold some grants from states that have such laws, will come as part of the House’s debate on the Commerce Department spending bill.

“‘Shoot-first’ laws have already cost too many lives. In Florida alone, deaths due to self-defense have tripled since the law was enacted. Federal money shouldn’t be spent supporting states with laws that endanger their own people,” said Reps. Raul Grijalva of Arizona and Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the two Democrats who are offering the legislation. “This is no different than withholding transportation funds from states that don’t enforce seat-belt laws.”

“Deaths due to self-defense…” would mean citizens killing their would-be killers, right? Responsible citizens defending themselves from bad guys. That’s a bad thing now? How many deaths were due to a lack of self-defense? “…have tripled since the law was enacted.” Got any evidence? No?

Then kindly shut up.

Citizens increasingly need a robust self-defense from idiots like Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva in Washington.
