Marissa Alexander, serving a 20 year mandatory sentence for firing gun at abusive husband, gets new trial but a Judge has postponed bail hearing until January 2014
Isn’t it exceedingly odd that members of this powerful group most vocal in defending the rights of teen Trayvon Martin’s killer did not lift their voice to defend a woman who was abused by her husband and stood her ground without killing or hurting anyone?
That gun rights groups who put up defense money and offered more money for the acquitted Zimmerman to purchase himself a new gun, did not go to battle for an abused woman who was exercising her Second Amendment rights as well as her Stand Your Ground rights?
Why isn’t the NRA using Marissa Alexander in ads all across the country? Where is Wayne LaPierre’s slogan "It takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy"? For in this case it did stop a bad guy and no one died.
In fact, one would think this case would be championed by all the avid protectors of the Second Amendment who love to take to television, radio, the Internet and every other horse-and-buggy show to fiercely defend every American’s right to bear arms, while attacking President Obama for being the Grim Reaper of all this country holds dear, assault rifles and all.
Where, oh where is the NRA?
