Today, as a huge protest against Stand You Ground laws got underway in Florida, U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown (D-FL) said the state had embarrassed itself with the law. “We’re here because Florida is stuck on stupid.”
At that same protest in Tallahassee, the Rev. Al Sharpton said of the SYG law “You have legislators saying our children can be killed based on the imaginations of others” and “Protecting yourself is not having a social hallucination.”
If Florida GOP legislators get their way, two of their newly proposed gun bills ths year could make that statement true for more than just SYG. It could become a nightmare for teachers, students, and their parents at schools all over the state.
