TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida's Republican-controlled Legislature is coming out solidly against a special session to repeal the state's "stand your ground law."

The Department of State on Wednesday released a list that showed more than half of the state's 160-member Legislature has already voted against the idea.

The vote was triggered earlier after 33 legislators asked for a special session in writing. They were urged to do so by protesters upset with the July verdict in the George Zimmerman case.

Hey progressives. Take note! We in Florida hope you continue to boycott our state. Take you money, your votes (legal and illegal), your corruption and your anti-American, bullying, malicious prosecuting race baiting ways with you! I would also refer you to the sentiments expressed under the article. People don't want you here. Now get lost and stay lost.

This stand your ground business is a good example of the big lie technique used by fascists and Alinskyites.

Tell a lie often enough, and people believe it.

The stand your ground law had nothing to do with the Trayvon Martin case. Yet the liberals glommed onto stand your ground laws as a result of the case.

Stevie Wonder fans in Florida won’t see him in Florida anytime soon.

Wasn't that Jesse Jackson's call for a boycott? I heard the crime rate has dropped already......

The Fla. legislature voted down Rick Scotts plan to expand medicaid here too, which would have eventually bankrupted the state.

This should provide the basis for evicting the protesters from the Capitol building.

Would love to surround Stevie Wonder with `adoring fans’ shouting things like

“Welcome to Florida, Stevie!”
“Isn’t the weather here in Miami wonderful!?”
“We knew you’d change your mind!”
“How ‘bout them Seminoles?”
“Come to Disney World, Stevie, you can be there in ten minutes!”

We can’t sit still, however, because that is just a defensive line for them to attack over and over again. Instead we have to keep advancing gun liberty further, to keep the gun controllers on the defensive.

Florida is like Texas, in forbidding open carry. This needs to change. Likewise, unlike Arizona, it still requires licenses. To get rid of licenses at all is a reasonable goal, because though liberals tout that AZ is 11th among states in “gun homicides”, 71% of those “homicides” are in fact suicides. If you eliminate suicide from the statistics, Arizona’s gun crime statistics *dropped* twice as much as the rest of the country. It is near dead last.

A 38% decline in violent gun crime. With *no* gun licensing at all. So it is a very reasonable goal for other states that still have “gun control” because they still have gun licenses.

So the Florida legislature should not let the gun controllers get away with this attack, but be ready to come back in their next regular session with *new* gun liberty laws.

I haven’t noticed a significant outflow of “African-Americans” from the state either as a result of the Zimmerman verdict or our refusal to alter SYG laws to make law-abiding citizens easier targets.

Damned liars.

I still wonder about the Scott proposed medicaid expansion.
It was so odd that I suspect that it was a gambit put forth to take away a re election issue.
He had to know it had no chance of passing.

Good! Very good!

Hearings were Plan-B for these “Dream Defenders”. They and their supporters are hoping for a “match for their kindling”

With the Florida Sheriff’s Association just voting to endorse the “Stand Your Ground” law, IN ITS PRESENT FORM, they (Sheriffs) may have persuaded some of the waffling legislators to not capitulate to the 33. I know I wrote to my legiscritter and asked her to vote against a special session...she apparently did!

I still think Scott did that for political reasons (re-election) and the legislature, by voting it down, gave him some [political] cover.

Yeah, but come November the progressive snowbirds will still be down in droves, getting sh!tfaced at the clubs, seeing the sights, hanging out at the Magic Kingdom feeding the Rat. Also I hear the Dream Defenders vacated the old Capitol building. Buh bye! Hey, defenders don’t let the door hit ya! Y’all come back now, ya hear?!
