    My understanding is that they were not in attendance at this gathering. The way the story reads I think that it was a unanimous vote of those in attendance. As it says it was "without opposition."

    According to that news story, "The voice vote Tuesday came with 57 of the state's sheriffs in attendance" (out of 67 sheriffs from FL's counties).

    Who's to say? I wasn't there. But if that statement's true, then it sounds like there were 57 sheriffs at the meeting, 57 who voted, and none opposed the organization's support for SYG.

    And it's time to evict the protestors who are wasting my hard-earned tax dollars.

    I know a few officers in this state and I would have figured it would go this way law enforcement knows they only respond to crime not prevent it and that an armed citizen can be the only to react when is needed in the moment.

    Cool

    Good on the Florida sheriff's.

    And I agree with Old Vet (contrary to popular belief I usually do). Evict the protesters from the grounds of the Florida State House and send them back whee they came from because most are not Florida residents.

    And as far as the rest of the liberal media like Sharpton and that jerk Bob Beckel on Fox News, you say you think were a bunch of cracker yahoo's down here, good then keep your a$$e$ and your opinions out of our state.

    Regards,

    I'm in Lake county. We have the highest amount of CWFL holders in the state(per capita). I'd like to see the list of Sheriffs that were in attendance.

    Am guessing it was the FL Sheriffs' Association's "Summer Conference" held over the past several days. Unknown whether they publish a list of attendees.

    I discovered the "Occupiers" in JAX were paid professional gripers. None of the "leaders" we're from JAX.
    Most don't hear that on the news and the journalists don't ask those kind of questions on camera.

    That doesn't surprise me at all. The FL Sheriffs Association has always been fairly conservative and pro-2nd Ammendment as long as I can remember.

    This strategy hs been used against conservative thought for a long, long time.
