Proposed Federal House Legislation HR55

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

A resolution of Congress calling for the repeal of stand your ground laws/Castle doctrine laws throughout America!

Evaluation: decidedly anti-self-defense!

Legislation Overview

Title: Honoring the life of Trayvon Martin, urging the repeal of Stand Your Ground laws, and calling on the United States Government to address the crisis of racial profiling.

Subject: Correctional facilities and imprisonment: Drug, alcohol, tobacco use: Firearms and explosives: Government studies and investigations: Law enforcement administration and funding: Minority education: Poverty and welfare assistance: Racial and ethnic relations: State and local government operations: Violent crime: Crime and law enforcement

Description: Condemns unfounded reliance on Stand Your Ground laws to protect actions that extend far beyond historical use of self-defense. Urges state legislatures to reject or repeal Stand Your Ground legislation. Commits to developing incentives for states to find alternatives to such legislation, such as grants for community policing. Encourages states to create penalties for individuals found to have caused substantive harm through racial profiling. Urges the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to seek to elevate the social status of black males by undertaking studies to understand and correct the underlying causes of higher rates of school expulsions and suspensions, homicides, incarceration, poverty, violence, and drug abuse, as well as income, health, and educational disparities.
