    Hello from sunny Florida

    I carry pretty much all the time since I got my CWL.

    FL does have reasonable laws to protect our right to carry and right to own firearms.

    My primary motivation was what happened in New Orleans LA.

    And it was not only the "goblins" that created havoc. It was also how we had a local government confiscate guns -- like Hitler, Stalin, and other dictators.

    That scared me much more than some "bad guy" wanting to take my lunch away from me. If has a nation we do not wake up to things like that... we may not be the nation the fore-fathers created for us with their blood, sweat, and tears.

    It's more than sad... it makes me feel angry that somebody who was elected could feel comfortable with sending armed police to use force and take private property away from citizen simply becasue they have it.

    WHY DID THEY NOT DO THIS BEFORE -- but instead to get the illegal drugs and stolen items from people's home?

    How come they are not doing it now in stopping the drug dealers who are commiting real crimes right now?

    Sorry to get on the soapbox.

    When do we really need the 2nd amendment? When the government tries to take it from us. After that they can easily take the other 10.
