    False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Thomas Jefferson

    IF it passes, that's an excellent idea.

    I'm about 5 hours away from you. We can have regional celebrations.

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    I hate Miami with a passion. And it's many hundreds of miles away... There were a few guys that were thinking about a Fishing event down there. I'm sure they'll chime in.

    My celebration will be to go to the local Starbucks smack in the middle of Flaming Liberal Student Land... What? I go there already. The other one is farther away....

    I'm in Fort Lauderdale; only been to Miami once, that was enough, lol. If anyone wants to meet somewhere though, have an OC BBQ etc. that be awesome. I'm definitely down for some regional OC get togethers. Especially in south Florida, I can imagine it won't look good for lone OCers in miami/fort.laud./WPB region anytime soon...

    You guys in the areas where CLEOs have already vowed unwarranted response and intimidation should probably have camera people around. Especially Pinellas, Hillsboro, and Miami-Dade. I know you think it's silly and that I'm talking out my ass, but these people are not above killing to get their way. I'd hate for your body to be my toljaso.

    I still say you've got the cart in front of the horse. the Fat Lady has not sung, and we're working with a narrower margin than we previously thought. It is entirely possible that these plans may be for naught.

    I'm sure our Fearless Leaders have a press release and some emails for us to send.... We're gonna need it.

    If you haven't figured it out, I'm in Gainesville.

    My digital camera takes 480p video (it's a few years old, but it works), and my phone does 720p. I volunteer to forgo the festivities of actually OCing, and be the guy with the camera(s) if and where needed.

    Grouping up is a good idea. I'm in St. Pete with monthly travels to UF. GPD's one thing, some good folk. It's University police with their jurisdiction on University, Archer, 13th, and 34th that REALLY scare me. Them and shoot first Coats.

    I'm with you on that ixtow. Getting it out of committee is a narrow victory. The floor is where the real yeas and nays count. We'll see which senators are really in favor of the bill and which ones have been blowing smoke. The floor is where most concede for the hand shake deals and political favor towards other bills.

    I think party plans are a little premature at this point. Everyone needs to start drafting their emails and have them ready when we hear of the floor vote date & time. It won't have a lot of time once it's on the agenda so people have to be quick with their emails. Start sending them now and have more ready once the date is public.

    a BBQ would be great

    It passed guys. now time to man up and bring out the guns. i say groups would be better at 1st but still if you get stop by JSO or your county LEO make sure you call some one and leave the phone on so some one is a witness to you being harassed if you actually get harassed. Make sure you keep you CW permit with you regardless if your open or conceal your weapon. I live in west jax and off on mondays and tuesday for now so i can meet up with any one in my area. just message me.
