    Funny you say that...a Cuban born american (he is a citizen) I work with is buying a gun finally (he got a M&Pc 9mm) and is going to get his concealed permit. I will admit to prodding him to buy one as he kept mentioning incidents that happened near his home.

    I was actually referring to the North Eastern imports. No offense to the good folks from the NE on this forum.

    Florida not proactive? Did you ever hear of the "Bring your gun to work law" until Florida passed it a couple of years ago which prevented employers
    from forbidding their legally licensed employees from storing their guns in their cars at work on the employers property? Again, many states
    followed the Florida lead with similar legislation.

    Nevada is following Wyoming's lead and introducing a bill to protect 2A rights.

    really? Not the 1,000,000 active concealed weapons licensees in Florida. If you are talking about the refugees from New Yuck and New Joisey that have
    been brainwashed that guns are evil, then yes, you are correct.

    I'm all in 100 % with you. I haven't heard, read anything, nothing at all. Maybe they are doing something behind closed doors but I sure would feel better knowing at least something Florida may be doing, if anything at all.

    I know there were a few things in the past few years that were good but I would like a show of support here. I was all for Arizona standing up for the fight against illegal immigration and I am all for Texas and Wyoming for standing up for the second amendment adamantly.

    I'm in Tennessee and I sure wish they would get on board, plus my home state of Alabama.

    Florida is a rather passive state when it comes to legislation. I live around a LOT of retirees here, and most of them don't really care what happens. The one's who own guns want to keep them, the one's who don't just don't want to get shot but don't really care whether you own a gun or not. These are issues that come up at work a lot, and beings there are only two vocal gun owners (myself and another who shall remain nameless), they get directed at us. It's rather fun to fight down a debate with logic and reasoning and see the other person's face turn red as they get more and more angry.

    I have been practicing this whole "alertness" thing and I try to pick out who carries and who doesn't. It is surprising how many people who do, and it's also surprising how many people don't and who doesn't. Most people either don't care or don't care to look.

    Anyway, back to the point. Florida politicians KNOW that there are MANY gun owners here, or at least they do after the gargantuan influx of CC applicants (FYI: its at between 8 and 12 weeks for processing). To this end, I don't see them making any new gun control legislation, proposing any gun bans, etc, etc, etc. I might see them doing the whole "mental health in background checks" thing, but that's really about it. They know what the people want, and they don't really intend on changing it too soon.

    I was born in Texas. I would go back in a hearbeat if I could get my wife to go. Even if she did go I would have to take my Mother in Law with me. If I stay in Missouri at least I don't have to live in the same house with the Mother in Law. Life's tough sometimes.
