How can we feel safe in a country where more than 100 million people, of unknown mental stability, own guns? Where is the sanity? Is anyone safe anymore?
In the first week after the Newtown, Conn., massacre on Dec. 14, more than 100 people in the U.S. were killed by guns. In the first seven weeks, that number had risen to at least 1,285 gunshot killings and accidental deaths. A little more than three months after Newtown, there have been 2,243.
And yet, the congress we elected, to be our representatives, the people who actually work FOR us, cannot pass legislation to protect us against the lunatics who insist on their right to own an assault weapon. Is there any spot on earth free from this kind of lunacy? Do they accept immigrants?
18 STATES ALREADY CRIMINALIZING THE EXPOSURE OF ANIMAL ABUSE!
Act NOW to STOP AG GAG LAWS!
Ag Gag or “whistleblower suppression” laws allow animal enterprises to get away with animal abuse, food safety violations, workplace safety violations and countless environmental hazards.
Take the time to contact your legislators and tell them that YOU DO NOT WANT AG GAG LAWS in your state.
Animal rights groups are becoming successful at exposing the cruelty inflicted on animals by humans. This is clearly evident as more laws are being passed to protect the guilty parties and to punish animal advocates.
The farm industry and the American Legislative Exchange Council are behind the latest Ag Gag bills being introduced in state legislatures nationwide. The purpose of these bills is to criminalize acts related to investigating the day-to-day activities of industrial (factory) farms and other animal enterprises, including the recording, possession or distribution of photos, video and/or audio. Such investigations have been instrumental in animal cruelty prosecutions and spurred reforms to protect the safety of the nation’s food supply. The bills threaten not only to cover up horrific animal abuse and food safety issues, but also other illegal environmental and labor violations. The animals need to be protected and the American people have a right to know how food is produced.
Free speech is a constitutional right; it is an outrage that laws are being passed to stifle it!
