Profiting Off Shoot First Laws
Unfortunately, our corporate media is refusing to investigate this so we expose it where we can. Be sure to tell your friends and family who is benefiting from these vigilante laws that make all of us less safe from “Justifiable Homicide.”
Did you ever wonder why all the sudden 25 states have passed almost identical laws giving kooks the right to shoot you and me and get away with it? How could it possibly be that all 25 states thought up the idiocy all at the same time.
No, it’s not the individual states. It’s not a coincidence. There is a profit motive.
The laws in the states have been drafted and sponsored by billion dollar corporations for the purpose of making money.
Have you ever heard of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)? ALEC is an organization funded and created by the Koch brothers to gather up legislators willing to prostitute themselves for big businesses. They meet with our legislators regularly and provide them with pre-written bills that they can take back and just plug in.
ALEC has many domestic and international businesses who pay big money to send lobbyists to the meetings and provide laws that will benefit them.
Who would make money by putting more guns in the hands of Americans? You guessed it. These laws have been sent to all the states for ratification on behalf of corporations, the likes of the NRA (the gun sales lobby) and Wal-Mart.
It’s important to not turn this into a political issue, because it’s not. It is an issue with corporations making our country worse for their profit.
Of course, it doesn’t help that ALEC is frequented almost entirely by Republican law makers. But the problem isn’t the party, it’s the fact that our representatives are prostituting their law making powers for big business and against the best interests of you and me.
Again, let me suggest that you tell everyone you can about this because it’s not getting out in the evening news. So much for “Liberal Media”.
