These 'shoot first' laws are little more than a fear-based corporate NRA-ALEC attempt to drive up gun sales. They don't make us any safer obviously & where is the law that protects law abiding citizens from these gun nuts who walk around just looking for someone to shoot??? Where's the law that allows peaceful unarmed people to stand their ground against the armed??? Why should people be forced to carry a gun around to feel safe??? Many don't feel safe around guns, in fact they feel less safe around them & especially in the hands of people who walk around in a media induced fear, where's the law that protects them???
