Congressional Democrats Introduce Amendment to Outlaw Self Defense

Democrats Raul Grijalva asnd Keith Ellison.

“Shoot first laws have already cost too many lives,” said Progressive Caucus co-chairs Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva
upon introducing their amendment. “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. This is no different than withholding transportation funds from
states that don’t enforce seatbelt laws.”

“The message here is if you have this kind of law that your federal
funding is going to take a hit because they make states less safe,” Adam
Sarvana, communications director for Grijalva, told Politico.

In other words, the Democrats will force states to choose between
putting their citizens at the mercy of violent criminals or taking
federal largess.

Because the House does not have an open amendment process, the
amendment will likely not see a vote on the floor. Ellison and Grijalva
introduced the amendment in and effort to further politicize the Trayvon
Martin case and increase pressure on the Second Amendment.

Democrats are using “Shoot First” instead of “Stand Your Ground” in an effort to portray self defense as homicide.

“Stand Your Ground” is a legal extension of the Castle doctrine
stating that a person has a right to defend himself against an
intruder. “Stand Your Ground” laws state that one can use deadly force
in any location one is legally allowed to be and removes the requirement
that the threat must occur on one’s own property.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus is the largest caucus within the
Democratic caucus in Congress. It is supported by the Institute for
Policy Studies, MoveOn.org, the NAACP, National Council of La Raza, Hip
Hop Caucus, and other liberal and so-called “progressive” organizations.

    This is nothing new. Being politically correct over being safe is par for the course for the democrats.

    It is a move intended to appease blacks. It won't actually go anywhere, especially before the election.

    Typical rhetoric and lies from the progressives. Won't change anything though. Humans have a natural reaction to survive, laws or no laws, people will still defend themselves by killing if necessary.

    We need to defend ourselves in November.

    Here it comes folks. You had to know that this would happen sooner or later. The Democommunists sure don't want you to protect yourself that way it makes it easier for them to control you and the criminals have a field day knowing you can no longer legally defend yourself, your family or your property. Of course the Muslim Keith Ellison would love to see this happen.
