    I wish Virginia would follow suite, but I fear that the Socialists in NOVA will block it.

    I wish I lived in Texas. I do love Florida for a lot of things, but on the issue of the 2A lately we have not been at the forefront of it. Back in 1987 shall issue was introduced to Florida. Many states used Florida's law as a model for their own shall issue laws. Today it's like Florida would rather just ignore it all and not be proactive.

    Does Obama have any idea how divisive his politics are? Texas and Wyoming won't be the last - I'm guessing Arizona will be next to jump on this idea. Our president is seemingly intent on turning Americans against each other. Where will this end? What a mess.

    Yes and he is counting on this being the case. He would like nothing more than to declare martial law. If he thinks he has half a reason to so do, he will.

    depending on how this turns out, states declaring (or passing) bills/laws might not matter. If things stay calm then they persuade potus or congress to not make any more crazy moves, but if things go too far to the left, these wont matter, the lone wolf's will start acting out.

    And you base this on what? I have to disagree with you on this. FL does not have OC, but neither does TX. Signs carry no legal weight in FL, but they do in TX. And as of recent, incidental/accidental gun exposure while CC'ing in FL is NOT a violation of OC. How about TX? Didn't FL just pass a law allowing suits against municipalities that have/enforce local ordinances? Yes.

    Seems Fl is still pro-active to me.

    So when they were trying to take away stand your ground, Florida's legislators could have told them to shove it until the case is closed. They did not. They allowed the theater and all the bad press to ensue.

    Plus there are states who are passing legislation to protect the second amendment, Florida isn't among them at this time.

    Like I said, I love Florida for a lot of things(you mentioned some great things) but at this time I wish Florida would join in against this push.

    I think the "imports" have changed the mentality and attitudes of most Floridians.

    Wyoming has long been on my list of favorite places. Texas is cool, too, but they have that whole diminishing aquifer thing going on.

    The only signs that are legal are the 30.06 and 51% signs. Gun buster signs dont count.
