Letter: Ludicrous actions
Re “3 reps file petition to remove 189” (Monitor front page, April 13):
These state representatives may not like the potential reversal by House Bill 135 of the “stand your ground” law passed by the previous Legislature, but the democratic process allows legislative bodies to reverse laws.
Petitioners are not the deciders that reversal negates people’s constitutional rights or that representatives who voted for HB 135 “breached the public trust” or violated their oaths of office. Jack Kimball, the former Republican Party chairman, wants them removed from office, saying, “We the people have had enough!” Courts are the deciders, not Kimball and cohorts.
Indeed, many of “we the people” have had enough of Kimball and company and their ludicrous actions, and don’t support “stand your ground.” I’m one. These men, not liking the way the ball game is being played, want to take the ball and go home, thus ending the game.
