The law according to racial bigotry was condemned by King and civil liberty advocates joined hands with him. When he wrote to reputable clergy men and they declared it as a civil disobedience against the law of the state (Boshier, 40-41). Even after years from the King’s anti-segregation campaigns one can witness inequality and chauvinism due to racist notions in the law abiding agencies of the State. The letter was written in 1963 to the government’s higher officials to remind them of their civil responsibility to maintain equality irrespective of the race and cast. In 1999, the lawmakers introduced a new gun law in Florida. Since the residents of Florida receive a constitutional right to carry a gun. Therefore, authorities devised an inflexible and irrational law known as 10-20-life law. This law states if a gun is used in any felony the owner will receive a direct 10 year prison time and., if it used in a shooting 20 year prison time. And if at a person who is killed or injured, he will receive a 25-to- life time in prison (Downes and Cohen et al., 180). This rigid law encountered many guiltless cases, but they were charged with the harsh terms devised by the obtuse law makers. Gun laws in Florida are most inflexible and distinct from the other States of USA. Florida gun laws have victimized many of the innocent citizens. Hence, these laws need amendment and require immediate attention of the jurisdiction. Two prominent cases of simple nature have been judged oddly in Florida State.
George Zimmerman, Hispanic, 29 with a gun was on a guard for a gated community of Sanford, he shot a black 17 year old youth out of suspicion and in self-defense. Since Zimmerman called police earlier to report suspicion and declared his act as a self- defense act; the police released him after 5 hour investigation. ‘the stand your ground’ law enabled him to be free and police could not seize him due to it (Alarid,1). His case was taken to court six weeks after the shooting when the country wide protest began on such a racial bigotry and unjust law. However, the trial began and Zimmerman (who is pursuing his studies in criminal justice) won the case on the bases of self-defense and was released. Florida State law allows the volunteer watch guards and residents to hold gun with a gun permit. This constitutional right makes it difficult for the police to resolve such disputable cases. Another case is of Marrisa Alexander, she is 31 and has three children, she was abused by her husband and she used her gun and shot in the wall to scare off her husband as a self defense tactic. She received a 20 year prison time and had to abandon her children due to this irrational law. Although, in this case Alexander’s ex-husband admitted his abuse on her and the shot was only to stop him from imposing force on her (a self defense strategy), but she was directly charged with 20 year prison time and Zimmerman who actually killed a boy is out of prison on the bases of ‘the stand your ground’ law. This racial bigotry and ridicules application of the law is making the residents anxious of their authorities. Hence, first degree man slaughter case can be dismissed on the bases of self-defense, but a woman being abused cannot use a gun to shoot aimlessly to fright off the strangler (Finely, 424). The law makers of Florida have devised the two laws, but they do not coincide in any way and creating a chaos for the residents of Florida. They are defense less with their guns and can be shot by a
