Shoot first? Why not think first?

Tony Cornish, a Minnesota State Representative, has produced a law that loosens the restrictions on use of firearms, namely that a person has a right to shoot another if that person believes the other is a threat (HF 1467).  This has already passed the Minnesota House and was working its way through the Senate.

Let's see.  A hunter is lost and comes to my cabin door asking for directions.  Blam! He's dead and I'm not responsible.  An irresponsible bird hunter shoots down my driveway.  Blam!  He's dead and I'm not responsible.

This is the legislature that was working hard on the state budget?
