This is an email response I received regarding the predictable anti-gun hysteria following the sensationalization of the Trayvon Martin shooting, not to mention the hollow attacks against Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' laws. The United Sportsmen of Florida, led by the indomitable Marion Hammer, have provided here a rich source of information and facts regarding these current events, which I have transcribed.

ALERT --- Protect Your Right To Refuse To Be A Victim -- Gov. Task Force
DATE: April 20, 2012
TO: USF & NRA Members and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer, USF Executive Director, NRA Past President
Florida Governor Rick Scott has announced the appointment of a Task Force to review Florida's Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground laws.
The Castle Doctrine law protects law-abiding citizens from law enforcement and prosecutorial abuse when they fight back and use force, including deadly force against an intruder/attacker in their homes or occupied vehicles. The law removes any duty to retreat when in your home or vehicle and presumes that an intruder/attacker intends to do bodily harm, therefore allowing the use of force, including deady force, to protect yourself, your family and your home.
The Stand Your Ground law protects law-abiding citizens from law enforcement and prosecutorial abuse when they fight back and use force, including deadly force against an intruder/attacker. The law provides that a person does not have a duty to retreat if the person is in a place where he or she has a right to be, and may meet force with force if the person reasonably believes he/she is in immiment peril of death or great bodily harm.

Florida Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground Law
In the face of outrageous misinterpretations of the law by the anti-gun, anti-self defense Brady Campaign's reckless henchmen, and politically motivated anti-gun legislators and politicians, Governor Rick Scott has appointed the Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection to actually review the law and bring the truth to light.

And from Tucson, Arizona's TusconCitizen.com is a link attacking Marion Hammer for her work to protect law-abiding gun owners' rights. The article includes a video you should watch because Hammer explains why the law became necessary.
NASTY JACK: Graying Granny Marion Hammer excellent example of NRAs brain washing

Learn to be “Mean and Nasty” - So “Mean and Nasty” that those you choose to be “Mean and Nasty” to, will beat feet to get the bloody hell away from you and give you wide berth when ever they see you in the future.
I like to pick my friends and I also like to keep the “unfriendlies” and outright Bastardos separate.
The funny thing is - that some of those Bastardos respect me and try and ask forgiveness. Some have even become good friends.
Ping; I figure you might have some comments on this, even if it is just to reprise your comments on the other thread.

An e-mail that I sent to the Task Force:
Hmmm, the VERY same Angela Corey who over-charged and withheld evidence in the George Zimmerman case. Sure looks like she is an anti-2nd Amendment zealot to me!
“State Attorney Angela Corey, however, said the jury heard the whole story and the public will, too, at the sentencing. Then, she said, she will be willing to shed more light on a matter she said she has been very involved with from the beginning.”
Thanks- I’ve been on the road and missed a couple of days.
I can’t add anything to what Marion says. She knows who the friends of the second amendment are- especially the ones on this task force.
She sent me the Dan Rather interview a while ago- what a hoot! Love that lady!
