Smut, not guns, is the great risk to teenagers. So say Florida lawmakers, who - days after one of the deadliest school massacres in history occurred on their doorstep, as the child survivors of that massacre watched from the gallery - refused to consider a bill banning assault-style rifles. About an hour later, those same legislators passed a resolution declaring that pornography endangers teenage health. Say what you will about porn, but to my knowledge, it has not been used to slaughter teens.
|"But Stand Your Ground is hardly the only case of extreme Floridian deference to the gun lobby."
It's "extreme deference" to the constitutional presumption of innocence, you dimwit.
And the rest is a result of "extreme deference" to the rights of self-defense and the means to defend oneself.
By painting the NRA as the bogeyman, you expose yourself as the real extremist.
