    Orange County sheriff's officials said Abreu was hit in the stomach while her husband was cleaning his gun late Monday at their Orlando-area home. She was six months pregnant.

    The bullet struck 39-year-old Enio Abreu in the hand before hitting in his wife, authorities said.

    Yesterday a 13 year old here went out to mow the yard. He took a pistol (we have tons of snakes) dropped it in the carport and that was that. The mower was still running.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    "Very quiet guy, soft spoken, not tremendously outgoing. I didnít have long conversations with him. Seemed like a very nice fellow," said neighbor Bob Ballatine.

    Enio Abreu was previously charged with a felony for forging a passport in 1992 and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in 1997. A few years later he was caught with a gun while soliciting a prostitute. The crimes were committed in Miami Dade County.

    We have 10-20-Life which says:


    Mandates a minimum 10 year prison term for certain felonies, or attempted felonies in which the offender possesses a firearm or destructive device

    Mandates a minimum 20 year prison term when the firearm is discharged

    Mandates a minimum 25 years to LIFE if someone is injured or killed

    Mandates a minimum 3 year prison term for possession of a firearm by a felon

    Mandates that the minimum prison term is to be served consecutively to any other term of imprisonment imposed.
