Florida front and center in gun-rights debate

TALLAHASSEE Floridas liberal gun laws have been thrust into the national spotlight with the shooting of an unarmed teen in Central Florida and Gov. Rick Scotts quick rejection of Tampas bid to tighten gun control outside the Republican National Convention this summer.
Scotts decision last week to deny Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorns request to limit concealed weapons near the convention was not surprising given his open support for gun rights and the National Rifle Association, which advocates on behalf of gun owners.

They won't feel free to spit on and beat up GOP delegates!
I see this as the local leftmedia's upping the volume on their most recent screeds, since their agitprop to date has not had anywhere near the desired effect. When theirs was the only voice of "the news", they would have gotten their whiny way by now. But no, so now it's "let's whine louder".
Which still won't work. Poor Mr. Dunkelburger... Well, Lloyd, I'm sure there's states in the Northeast, left coast & elsewhere have a place for you.
Poor frustrated little dears.
lol. I've never heard it called that.
It's perfect though.
The ability to defend oneself with a weapon makes sense and is the least expensive option available. Training a cop and putting him/her in a fully dressed squad car puts a big dent in municipal budgets. People paying for their own weapon and training is miniscule by comparison. It is common sense and makes budget sense.
Suggesting otherwise is to reveal an agenda that hasn't the best interests of the individual in mind or the cities where these people live. Chicago is on target to eclipse New York City in annual body counts. It's strict anti-gun laws make individuals sitting ducks. New York is no better.
