Bushes declare Open Season,(even on themselves!)

Bushes declare Open Season,(even on themselves!)
Gunfight at the OD Corral!

On October 1, 2005, Florida becomes a more dangerous place. That's when the Shoot First Law goes into effect, giving the people of Florida the right to use deadly force as a first resort when they feel threatened, even in a public place. But the Shoot First doctrine isn't just staying in Florida — it's about to become a national disgrace.

In a country where thousands die needlessly every year in gun accidents and violent confrontations, this law is an enormous step backwards in civic responsibility and public safety. What's more, it envisions a society in which fear and distrust are the rule, and reason and responsibility are an endangered species.

If you live in Florida, or plan on visiting Florida, get the facts on the Shoot First Law. Know when you're safe, and how to avoid misunderstandings. Learn about when the people of Florida can shoot to kill... and when they think they can. (*from Jim Brady Control Gun Violence website!)

***So now to sum up:The new Forida bill says its "giving the people of Florida the right to use deadly force as a first resort when they feel threatened.....Geez I really do hope no one starts feeling "threatned by the Bushes!

Speak Softly...Move Slowly. Smile. Do NOT Anger...

Gives me another good point not to go to the sweltering, humid, swampland, we call Florida.
Guns and sweating like a pig. Good combination.
Nah...I'll stick with the dry West. Cally, Oregon and Washington. (Blue States!)
