The 23 states with this law are: Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, North and South Dakota, Arizona, Utah, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Pennsylvania has a similar law. [NOTE:According to an interview on Marti Moss Coane's Radio Times on 3/22/12 as many as 32 states have some variant of this law!] Add this to lax regulations on who may own and carry a gun (see Virginia's repeal of the effective one gun per month law) and you have a toxic mix that is sure to lead to additional tragedies. Flood these states with calls, letters, and emails demanding the repeal of these insidious laws before your child becomes the next victim. This vile and dangerous legislation must not stand, for the sakes of innocent lives everywhere.
As you flood these states with repeal demands, hug your children and warn them to stay safe, keep away from paranoid individuals and anyone who is actively, suspiciously watching them. Keep safe.
