Stop the "Shoot First" Law in Georgia
In October, Florida became a very dangerous place, and if the National Rifle
Association (NRA) gets its way, Georgia will be next.
On October 1, the Shoot First Law went into effect in Florida, giving the
people of Florida permission to use deadly force as a FIRST resort, even in a
public place. The law grants sweeping criminal and civil immunity to anyone
who pulls the trigger when they feel "threatened" -- and specifically denies
legal recourse to innocent bystanders killed or wounded in the crossfire, even
if the shooter acted negligently.

But the Shoot First doctrine isn't just staying in Florida -- the NRA has made
no bones about the fact that it plans to export Shoot First legislation to all
50 states in 2006. This is about to become a national disgrace, and will take
us back to the days of the Wild West -- unless you get involved.
Our partners at Working Assets have put together an easy way for you to tell
your Governor to "Keep Shoot First out of our state" -- and we encourage you
