House Democrats said Tuesday they will offer an amendment to push to overturn stand-your-ground self-defense laws in states like Florida.
'Federal money shouldn't be spent supporting states with laws that endanger their own people," said Reps. Raul Grijalva of Arizona and Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the two Democrats who are offering the legislation. "This is no different than withholding transportation funds from states that don't enforce seat-belt laws."

Well, to be fair, I think the affected states should withhold federal money from the federal government. In example, federal income tax from its citizens, for a start.

Somehow this whole thing seems to be a setup from the start with Trayvon Martin's death just to pass the amendment.
