Monique Bastos uses Jiu-Jitsu to Detain a Thief

Monique Bastos is a mixed martial arts fighter who dished out a serious beat-down on a whining thief who thought he'd get off easy by targeting a 115 pound woman...

Monique was on her way to a jiu-jitsu class in Acailandia when a robber tried to steal her phone but once she knew they were not armed, she made him scream for mercy.

Well done!

Florida's "stand your ground" laws have received massive national attention recently leaving some armchair pundits with the feeling that Florida is easy on gun crime.

Most folks don't know of Florida's "10-20-LIFE" law that requires a minimum sentence of 10 years if a firearm is used or displayed during a crime, 20 years if the gun is fired, and a 20 years to life sentence if someone is injured in the shooting...

Although the NRA supported this law in 1998 when it was passed, concern over potential abuse, the ability to apply the law to those who use a firearm in self-defense, Marion Hammer has been quoted as saying, "We never would have supported a bill that would allow prosecutors to prosecute someone acting in self-defense."
