I hope you shit yourself the first time you have sex
edit: nvm won't ever happen
I can't see how application of that defense works here (other than a strict textual fashion), but calling for an appeal of a jury decision on a criminal charge without misconduct, probably not going to happen, double jeopardy and all that.
Side note - I'll probably be packing a heater in a few months if I get a job as a prosecutor in Texas. Don't worry, I won't shoot any hookers, your wives and sisters are safe! /sarcasm
It does sound like a psychopath who knew the law, studied it, and was waiting/looking for an opportunity to be able to kill another human.

As a lifelong career criminal, although I no longer enjoy the right to keep and bear arms, I'd like to take a moment to express my appreciation to the National Rifle Association for nonetheless protecting my ability to easily obtain them through its opposition to universal background checks.
Upon release in a few years from my current federal sentence on bank robbery and weapons charges, I fully anticipate being able to stop at a gun show on my way home to Connecticut -- where new laws have made it nearly impossible for a felon to readily purchase guns or ammunition -- in order to buy some with which to resume my criminal activities.
And so, a heartfelt thank you to the NRA and all those members of Congress voting with them. I, along with tens of thousands of other criminals, couldn't do what we do without you.

DONT YOU UNDERSTAND GAYDEETA THIS IS WHY WE NEED GUNS TO PROTECT OURSELVES FROM CRIMINALS WHO ARE GOING TO BREAK THE LAW TO BUY GUNS -- THE ANSWER IS NOT PASSING MORE LAWS THE ANSWER IS USING OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO DEFEND OURSELFS AND OUR FAMILIES AND OUR PROPERTY FROM THESE GODLESS HEATHEN ILLEGAL CRIMINAL TYPES. WHAT PART OF CREIMINAL DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND. IT IS THE GOVERNMENT TIT-SUCKING LIBERAL FAT DROSS OF THE LAND LIKE YOU WHO MAKE AMERICA WEAK.
The comments are priceless.
Easily the dumbest thing I've read on the internet all day. I mean, I could have ignored my final exams in college, but that doesn't mean I would pass them.If the felon buys a gun, he is already breaking the law....period. He would ignore universal background checks anyway. This article is pure bogus.

Right, you think I make that shit up?
http://smartgunlaws.org/the-californ...-safety-first/Over the last twenty years, the number of people injured or killed by guns in California has decreased dramatically. In 1993, 5,500 Californians were killed by gunfire; by 2010, the most recent year for which data is available, that number had dropped to 2,935.3 In just two decades, the state’s gun death rate has been cut by 56%, a reduction that translates to thousands of lives saved every single year.4
Over the last twenty years, California’s gun death rate has decreased dramatically.
The rate of gun violence in California has also fallen notably compared to rest of the country. Today, California has the ninth lowest gun death rate of any state nationwide when twenty years ago, it had the thirty-fifth lowest rate.5
California has taken a comprehensive and courageous approach to addressing the epidemic of gun violence, and that approach has succeeded. The state’s strong gun laws not only help save lives, but also reduce the trafficking of illegal guns to other states and to Mexico, protecting lives in neighboring communities.
friend of mine goes there and it was sent to him.
heard one death one injured, no arrests yet and one of the assailants may have been dressed as a cop.
get rid of guns and cops.
Just recently picked up a Glock 23, now looking to build an AR-15 (.223/5.56).
What's that? California gun owners have rights? Whoa!!
rights vs. safety.
The endless debate.
You still need a permit (as far as I know), the difference is now you don't need a defensible reason to carry one, all you need is a clean record. What scared gun nuts was who was evaluating your requests and deciding whether you had a good enough reason to issue a permit.
Orwellian and dystopian, that sound serious.
I like MN's interpretation, free-for-all concealed carry. Roulette with guns, yeah!

Individual rights are too important not to think them all the way through.
