I rread in MIchigan that the "retreat" requirement in MIchigans self defense laws is about to be voted on for removal. Meaning one no longer has to run and prey if violently attacked they can rather use deadly force if needed to save their hides. This is good news however the brady campaign and HGC are trying to stop it. This proves that it is sarah brady's and hgc sole commitment to give more rights to criminals and resort law abiding citizens into harmmless victims. while she is protected by her body gaurds we have to get beat up and shot by badguys without abitlity of defending ourselves. Sarah brady is a complete ass of a person and her organization does nothing but insult the intelillgence of our law abiding community. We must support the NRA and its fight for are 2nd amendment rights as well as common human rights to defend ourselves. GET HANDGUN INC. THE H.LL OUT OF MICH. :)

1st thanks for the post, i had not heard of "handgun inc" yep we need to do everything to oust them.. because as we all know and they cant seem to figure out.. gun laws only apply to the law abiding citizens... make all the gun laws you want and it will never ever effect the criminal.

Yup, the Brady Bunch is putting everything they have into this fight, because they're envisioning a domino effect, with more and more states following where Florida is leading. They figure Michigan is their last chance of stopping it. Let's hope they're right about that...and that they lose big.

Gun control group to run ads warning about self-defense shootings

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. A gun control group is set to start running ads contending that a new Florida law allowing people to act in self defense without first trying to flee will make it more dangerous to come here.

On Oct. 1, the day the new law takes effect, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence will run ads in newspapers in London, Chicago, Boston and Detroit that contend that visitors will now "face a greater risk of bodily harm in Florida," The Miami Herald reported Friday.

The group will also hand out fliers to arriving passengers at Miami International Airport drawing attention to the law, which passed the Legislature overwhelmingly earlier this year.

The measure says people who are under attack don't have to retreat before responding, but can meet "force with force" as long as they're in a place they legally have a right to be.

The person who feels they are under attack can use deadly force "if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so, to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another," under the new law, which was pushed by the National Rifle Association and signed by Gov. Jeb Bush in April.

The governor's office said the Brady Campaign's tactics were inflammatory and false.

"We think this is ridiculous," said Alia Faraj, the governor's spokeswoman. "Florida's crime rate has reached a 34-year low and the 80 million visitors who came to our state can attest to that. It's tragic that they would use gimmicks like that to scare people."

A similar bill is currently being considered in Michigan.

The only time OUR visitors will
now "face a greater risk of bodily harm in Florida,"
is if they come here to commit crime.
