Democrats in Washington are launching an all-out war to destroy state self-defense laws.

Colorado -–(Ammoland.com)- A newly-floated Democrat amendment would threaten to cut off crime prevention grants to any state with a Stand Your Ground law on the books, forcing states to eliminate the law in order to receive the grant.

These rabid anti-gunners are demanding that states put the law on the side of armed criminals, or else!

Will you take action right now to oppose the destruction of Stand Your Ground self-defense laws?

The Trayvon Martin incident in Florida, the gun-grabbers and their pals in the press are working feverishly to whip up anti-gun hysteria nationwide.

House Democrats said Tuesday they will offer an amendment to push to overturn stand-your-ground self-defense laws in states like Florida.

The amendment, which would withhold some grants from states that have such laws, will come as part of the House’s debate on the Commerce Department spending bill.

“‘Shoot-first’ laws have already cost too many lives. 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,” said Reps. Raul Grijalva of Arizona and Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the two Democrats who are offering the legislation.

“This is no different than withholding transportation funds from states that don’t enforce seat-belt laws.”

Florida’s law, which allows residents to use force in response to an attack without first having to retreat, has come under scrutiny after the nationally-polarizing death of teenager Trayvon Martin. George Zimmermann, a neighborhood watch volunteer, has been charged with murder in the case.
