LAW THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: Stand Your Ground And Open Fire
Why: Because I think the way Americans worships the 2nd Amendment is a huge problem, and laws like this need to change if the U.S. wants to be taken seriously and treat all of its citizens with respect. We are better than this.Inline image 1.
