You’d like to kill somebody and you’d prefer to do it legally. No problem — move to Florida.


You’d like to kill somebody and you’d prefer to do it legally. No problem — it’s easy.

Move to somewhere like Florida. Hunt your target down and make sure there are no witnesses. Shoot that person dead. Then say you feared for your life.

Chances are, you’ll never be charged. Thanks to National Rifle Association lobbyists, nearly half of all states have a law just like Florida’s, which makes it difficult to prosecute the neighborhood vigilante who stalked and fatally shot a black teen last month. (New Jersey isn’t one of the states.)

2. You can easily provoke someone, just like Zimmermann.

Did your ex-wife find a new beau? No problem. Follow him to work, start screaming obscenities at him, and when he turns to face you gun him down. Why not? He might have had a gun and he was turning toward you in a threatening manner.
