Bwa Ha Ha Ha Ha!

From "Stop the NRA" we have this note


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.

is a horrible idea for Washington

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

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."

That's just sad.

How long will these idiots keep predicting that the streets will run red with blood?

I thought it was supposed to happen after the laughable AWB was allow to expire? And it still hasn't happened in Florida.

Don't worry though, CSI:Miami will do an eposide based on a wacko shooting any that look sorta scary because of this law, and that ficitional account will be all they need to validate their fears.

Yes, Florida just got a lot more dangerous -- for criminals. Presumably these people want to go back to the good old days when only the criminals got to shoot first.

Also, I seem to remember an article a while back that dispelled the myth of the Wild West. Apparently, things weren't so wild. And it's hard to imagine that anywhere in the Old West was wilder than D.C. in the 21st century.

I would like to steal their slogan; "Stop the NRA"

Although, I would follow it with: "They Support Too Many Gun Control Laws For Me."

Sort of gives it the opposite effect then those Brady punks are looking for.
