    "Freedom States Alliance"? What a joke. They even have an antigun blog up. But whatever. Fancy Flash movies and celebrity endorsements are old tactics and they don't seem to be very effective...

    From the site's FAQ:

    As most websites put up by antis (Brady Bunch), it is full of a tiny bit of fact, lots of inflamitory buzz words, and a few outright lies.

    No one will get anything out of this other than the allready entrenched anti-gun foot soldiers.

    It might, however, provide us with some good ammunition:evil:

    Anyone else notice the molding seam at the end of that Beretta? And the lack of visible rifling? And the oddly inset smaller barrel? Airsoft :rolleyes:

    And how DARE the parent organization call themselves the "Freedom States Alliance"?!:fire:

    The NRA should not be lobbying for these laws. These are unneeded laws and they make the NRA look bad.

    Reluctantly, I agree. I'm glad they are sweeping across the heartland, but (contrary to what the antis assert) they have nothing specifically to do with gun or gun-ownership rights. I don't think it's a "gun" issue. It's a self-defense issue.

    I think we should be striving to remove the "duty to retreat" laws. Being protected from a civil suit after a self-defense shooting is nice, but the way some of these laws are written does make a few of the dimmer bulbs think they can kill for any reason.

    Heaven forbid lawmakers write a law in plain english so that everyone can understand it.:confused:

    I wonder how many of the endorsing celebrities have bodyguards that carry a gun on them. :rolleyes:

    Does anyone have any examples of folks in this country (I know of cases in the UK) sued or criminally convicted for using deadly force in self defense? Don't get me wrong, I'm just wondering if there was a problem before this legislation hit the scene.

    Notice the gun is clearly a Glock outline. Dosen't Glock have proprietary rights to that shape?

    They're not a gun issue and they're pointless. Ultimately deciding whether it was a "good shoot" will be up to prosecutors judges and juries and their culture, values and perceptions of the actors will make the decision. These laws change little if anything.

    And they make the NRA look bad and they're a waste of time and effort and resources.

    Come on NRA, please try fighting for our gun rights in some harder battles, like CCW in California and repealing sporting use laws. Stop it with this stuff. It disgusts me.

    I love how the FSA has mulitple websites in an attempt to appear bigger than they really are.

    I've never heard of them making any sort of public appearance, organizing rallies, or doing even 1/10 of the public screeching that the Brady Campaign does.

    We've had a 'make my day' law here in CO for several years now. I haven't heard of any abuses, and I keep pretty good track of the news.

    This is the same thing they tried on the CCW states. "oh, it'll be murder in the streets" . "people will be shooting people from their cars" etc. Didn't happen either. Except of course the criminals who did that stuff already.

    Just looked to see what celebrities they had on their side. I didn't see any & I don't want to look again. I feel dirty. Like I just rolled around in sewage. Excuse me while I go vomit.:barf: :barf: :barf:

    "Freedom States Alliance"

    Well that's about as Orwellian as you can get.

    That clearly fails the "fancy catsup" test.

    I can't imagine that the hyperbole and foaming at the mouth works with fence sitters.

    These kinds of sites do nothing more than make the radicals feel good ... sort of a "preach to the choir" thing ... I seriously doubt they are getting converts with this kind of "license to murder" and "states where murder is still illegal" tripe.

    Which makes me happy because its clearly a sign that "we" are winning :D

    Yes we are.

    And it makes the elitist gun grabbers of the Left crazy..... :evil:

    But vigilance is the key. They are not going to go away.:(
