What an asinine thing to say. Maybe one day, you'll face an armed intruder in the middle of the night and be thankful that your state allows you to stand your ground and defend your home and family. Oh wait, I forgot. You're in California.

You know very well that is not how the stand your ground laws work. And if you're making an orthogonal reference to the Trayvon Martin case, I'd encourage you to wait until the facts of the case come out in court before assuming anything.

So perhaps the shooter is guilty only of false imprisonment of a child.

He's pulling your chain, he was echoing the Zimmernan/Trayvon Martin case.

10,839 people died in drunk driving accidents last year.

More gun laws are needed now.

Funny you mention this, I can remember when there was serious talk about limiting the horse power of motorcycles because you "could go just too fast".

Would these need to be regular drunk driving laws or should they be CFRs?

Well we all know that no one needs a car that goes faster than 70 mph.

Well that won't do. You'll have to take and put a block under your pedal so it wont go that fast.

Well duh, CFRs of course. Only the feds can effectively regulate, just ask the current administration.
