If a state has a law that allows residents to defend themselves without retreating, Democrats propose punishing the state with cuts in federal funding. Politico.com says Representatives Raul Grijalva of Arizona and Keith Ellison of Michigan will present the amendment to pending legislation as soon as tonight:
“The message here is if you have this kind of law that your federal funding is going to take a hit because they make states less safe,” said Adam Sarvana, communications director for Grijalva.Less safe for who?
Democrats are apparently the Party of Thugs.
Update 9:28am 5/9/2012: Democrats yanked this one back. Any chance they ran a quick poll or focus group that told 'em it was political suicide?
