    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

    Um, err, you do know that this site existed long before the recent open carry legislative activity in Florida, right?

    The recent legislation is but a small part of the topics we discuss here.

    Stick around, you may yet learn someting...or teach us something.

    Staying put, man, and challenging with the only systems we've got: the vote and the justice system. SB 234, upon first challenge, will be stricken as "void for vagueness." (See Papachristou v. City of Jacksonville, 1972, USSC). A law this unclear will not survive judicial scrutiny, and the definitions of "brief," "anger," and other excessively vague language will not survive (though the clearer sections of the statute will).

    Guinea pigs? They don't wish to call themselves that, but I had a client last year whose weapon was "securely encased" and the cop wrote in the a-form that there was no holster. Videotapes from the booking revealed that the cop held on to my client's holster, which he brought into the PD. Case dropped; apologies rendered. Our testers will be the folks I run into every day: folks whose officers make grave mistakes.

    Big surprise there. the way the laws are written they will be stricken, or the court decisions remanded for clarification in compliance with the appeals courts.

    I don't think this is a bad thing. This means court victories, debates (on tv) about the common sense of OC (if you choose to exercise the Choice).

    In the meantime, let's recapitulate and pick up the pieces. We will be back with mor clout, with senate candidates of our own (to run and win).

    A break is the first order of business. Then we arrange a meet.

    HAHA!!! Someone started a "Florida Military and Police for Open Carry" Facebook group page.

    The following excerpts are from their wall...

    "This group is for active, retired, or honorably separated military and law enforcement seeking to combat the perception that we are hostile to citizen gun rights.

    We are proud to risk our lives for the rights of the people of Florida."


    "We denounce those who falsely speak in our name and disrespect our fallen brothers and sisters by lobbying against the gun owners of Florida. We would gladly give our lives to protect the citizens of Florida rather than see their rights trampled on. This is what our fallen brothers and sisters died for."


    "We know the facts are that holders of Florida CCW permits are less likely to have their permit revoked than we have our credentials revoked, we are proud of the people we serve and they have earned our trust in the over 24 years since Florida passed "shall issue" carry."

    If genuine, and not a false-flag op, excellent news, I say.
