    It's because they started believing their own propaganda.  They really do believe that everyone will be safer if everyone is carrying guns.  That's what the whole tea party revolution is, a bunch of true believers who bought into the lies the GOP have been telling for so long to get elected.

    There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

    •  Very late reply, but I don't believe it (0+ / 0-)

      I was just tossing out the possibility that some of the state-level backers of this law saw its potential to start cause armed feuding. However the goal of this law must principally be concerned with making enormous sums of money: One of the world's most powerful lobbying organizations, representing some of the world's most powerful multinational corporations does NOT care if the little people will be safer carrying guns. What's the angle?

      This law completely denies due process or equal protection to the alleged attacker killed by a person who "stands their ground." I still think it is very deliberately crafted to challenge the federal courts to reach down and try to invalidate it so as to guarantee Constitutional protections for the alleged attacker. The battle will go to SCOTUS, where 5 conservative judges will be tempted to tell the federal government that states are entitled to circumvent Constitutional protections in some circumstances, opening a Pandora's box of laws challenging federal protections of individual rights, federal environmental laws and regulations, commerce restrictions, etc., etc., etc.

      If ALEC is involved, I have to think they sniff huge $$$$.
