    I surely hope that the pendulum is not beginning to swing the other way... But we're certainly seeing increased efforts to decrease hard earned gains in self defense laws, especially regarding firearms.

    Good luck, Florida... And while you're at it, if ya'll have recall, try getting up a petition to oust the sponsors of such liberty hating legislation...

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?

    I still can't figure out how the anti's are gaining traction in getting rid of stand your ground and castle doctrine laws based on the Zimmerman case since that case HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH EITHER OF THEM.

    I was very surprised to get this information from a friend. Hope it doesn't gain traction

    Sadly, those pushing to make it tough to stand in your own defense will, at some point, be those who are demonized or even criminalized for daring to do just that. The U.K. has shown us the path in store for such people, if they willingly toss liberty into the ash can. And they won't appreciate what they've lost until it's gone beyond recognition. Liberty, that is.

    I could be wrong but don't believe that one will get past the committee.

    With all of this hubbub spotlighting O-Care there are things being tried in plain sight now that we all need to focus on too…..before it’s toooo late!

    Good-Luck Florida as it does not seem it will be reversed you still need to let your Legislature know how you feel.

    Representative Matt Gaetz, who is the committee chairman, has stated this will not make it to the floor of the Florida House. Being a resident of the Mr. Gaetz's district, I participated in a telephone townhall with him and he most emphatically stated that this proposed legislation will NOT pass out of committee.

    Until it does..

    I'm sorry, I'm losing all faith in politicians... If you like your insurance.... You can keep your insurance. Is only the most blatant, most recent example, by the most prominent politician. Others aspire to his "greatness."

    "A ratings" from the NRA don't mean much to me anymore, either.

    I hear you. However, this district in Florida is VERY attuned to the Constitution of the United States and will hold Mr. Gaetz accountable. He does have aspirations for higher office and will need our support to attain it. And we have long memories.

    An amazing mindset A)Police have no duty to protect you.Stated repeatedly by Courts.
    B)Citizens should have a legal duty to retreat from criminals. Espoused by Eric Holder.
    C)Let's turn loose more criminals from prison. Espoused by Eric Holder.
    Am I the only one who thinks the proposed solution to the resulting problems will be increased surveillance and abridgement of freedoms?
