TELL GOVERNOR GREGOIRE TO "KEEP SHOOT FIRST OUT OF WASHINGTON!"
Dear Washington StoptheNRA Member,
On October 1 of this year, the Shoot First Law went into effect in Florida, giving Floridians permission to use deadly force as a first resort when they feel threatened, even in a public place.
Our partners at Act for Change/Working Assets have put together an easy way for you to tell Governor Gregoire to "Keep Shoot First out of Washington" — and we encourage you to follow the links below to get this important message to Governor Gregoire.
In October, Florida became a more dangerous place, and if the NRA has its way, Washington could be next.
But the Shoot First doctrine isn't just staying in Florida — the NRA has made no bones about the fact that it plans to export Shoot First legislation to all 50 states in 2006. This will be a national disgrace, and will take us back to the days of the Wild West — unless you get involved.
The Shoot First legislation is so overly broad and expansive that road rage incidents or a fistfight in a bar could have deadly consequences for the people involved and innocent bystanders. Moreover, innocent bystanders and their families would have no civil recourse against a shooter if they are injured or killed in the crossfire, even if the shooter initiated the confrontation and fired recklessly on a crowded street.
Thanks in advance for taking a proactive stand to stop the spread of this dangerous legislation.
And thank you for working to build a better world.
A special thanks to Act for Change/Working Assets for helping us shed more light on this issue. To learn more, you can go to www.shootfirstlaw.org.
Together, we can make sure this doesn't become the law in Washington.

What a bunch of blather. Since they apparently don't already know, Washington is ALREADY a "shoot first," or more aptly, "stand your ground" state. Knuckleheads.
And check out their assinine cartoon of Florida now that they can "shoot first."
