The fallout begins

All:

My goal with this post is to make you aware of an article of legislation being introduced in Congress that would have grave consequences to our rate to protect ourselves. Please do not turn this into a referendum on the Zimmerman/Martin shooting.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/...von-amendment/

Per the article, several legislators are trying to cut federal grants to states that have laws similar to stand your ground laws of FL. In essence they are taking the same approach used to raise the drinking age to 21, pull the purse strings to enforce compliance. This would have major impacts as most if not all states have become dependant upon these funds.

Please write you Congress person, and voice your opinion.

Edit: Mods please move if this belongs in the Law/Civil Rights section
