We Already Have Tools To Defend Against Violent Hate Crimes

On Thursday, the U.S. Senate passed what some are hailing as "groundbreaking legislation" -- the creation of a federal crime to assault an individual because of his or her sexual orientation or gender identity.

If someone is being assaulted, GLBT Americans already have a tool to defend themselves that is far superior to a piece of paper that politicians eager for votes and contributions are slobbering over in Washington.

Its called a .45. For some, it's a .38. For others, its a 9 mm.

Actually, these widely used tools are good for defending against ANY kind of violent assault, without categorizing the reasons why the scumbags of the world want to go after someone.

When faced with a "hate" assault, you're telling us to dial 1-9-1-1-A-1?

Might work...
