I would ask that you consider postponing any open carry activity in the Miami-Dade/Broward area until at least May. As an Executive Director of Florida Carry, Inc. and the host of the monthly Fort Myers OC fishing event, I applaud your enthusiasm, but believe me when I tell you that by having an OC fishing event in the Miami area without proper preparation, could endanger yourself and your participants as well as causing irreparable harm to the OC movement.
The decision to ban OC in 1988 was formulated by opponents in the Miami area. We have been fortunate enough to have a lot of support for the bill, but one bad incident could doom the bill. Before we ever attempted an OC fishing event, we ensured we had properly notified the county/city attorney and police/sheriff departments prior to anyone OCing anywhere. Especially if the press are involved, it must be handled delicately and properly to ensure that the event presents OC in a good light. The press can take hours of footage at one of these events, but the few seconds someone rests their hand on their gun is what would make it onto the airwaves, along with a diatribe about carelessness and public danger.
Please reconsider your decision and contact me or StogieC personally via PM.
Thank you for your support.
