    Movement under way to let Floridians openly tote their guns

    COMMENTARY

    So you are walking down Park Avenue, window shopping for all the stuff you once could afford, and suddenly coming down the sidewalk you see three gunslingers.

    It's like the Wild West except they're drinking lattes, and instead of six-shooters, they have Glocks clipped to their matching Gucci belts.

    Would this bother you?

    Well, it could happen because the "open carry'' movement has come to Florida.

    . . .

    POLL: Guns in the open
    The "open carry" movement advocates are pushing legislation in Florida that would let people openly tote their guns. Do you support the move?

    Yes. It's a right to carry weapons, so why not display them, which could deter crime.
    No. It's bad enough that guns are already prevalent in our society. This just increases the chances that an innocent person is going to get caught in the line of fire.

    Yesterday's poll is still running and is at 75% in favor of open carry with 2100 votes.

    The paper has started a NEW POLL TODAY!

    HIT IT AGAIN! - New Poll

    The anti-gun nuts lost the other two polls so they just created a new one.

    The disclaimer under the one at the sun-sentinel should read "Results not even freaking close to scientific, because this poll is so unbalanced moveon.org won't touch it with a ten foot pole."
    "They don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band
    It ain't what they call rock and roll
    And the Sultans...
    Yeah the Sultans, they play Creole"

    If at first you fail miserably, continue to fail miserably for decades.

    Stupid is as stupid does. Did I just Gump the Bradys? I think I get a prize for that.

    Should somebody start a poll to determine the prize?

    I want it to be a salad made from the printouts of every word I ever wrote here saying Open Carry will never happen in FL....

    [sigh] I hate salad.
