Saw on Fox 10 this morning. Groups handing out flyers that people interviewed feel are geared to scare them. Warning visitors about not getting in confrontations with residents and telling about the new law. Making them think if they get into an argument the resident has the right to shoot them.

Since I know what I know about firearms and the FL law - I wish they could have caught me on camera - I'd have said "Wow! This makes me want to MOVE to Florida and LIVE here! Thanks for the brochure.

Makes me think someone should get some names, and call the ACLJ(IIRC). Action of this type is cutting very close to "Public Endangerment"- yelling-fire-in-the-theatre type of action.

It is simply an attempt by the Brady lobby to blackmail the residents of Florida 'for their own good'. There are few local newspapers that support such action, such as the Florida Today paper in my town. However, I think this type of activity will only cost the anti-gunners support and strengthen the resolve of all right thinking Americans to protect our second amendment rights.

Most of our Newspapers and TV stations have been calling the Brady Bunch "Wacko's".
You don't mess with the tourist trade.

At the hotel where I work I had been asked a couple of times about the new law by foreign visitors. I took the time to explain that it was a scaremongering propaganda and gave them a more detailed info on what the law really says. One of the things I tell them is that they can go ahead and stroll safely outside the hotel, go to shops and even go to the beach at night to enjoy the moonlight and their chances of being attacked by a criminal are pretty low. But I couldn't say the same about Washington DC where the Brady Bunch is located since their draconian Anti Gun laws are in effect and the criminal have free rein.
One british gentleman asked me (his tone of voice led me to believe he was antigun but still very polite) why we felt the need to stand our ground and be free form being unjustly prosecuted or sued. I just told him we had learned from the experiences of Tony Martin and we thought what had happened was unfair. The gentleman recoiled some and the wife was all smiles, the sort that say "told you so!"
I did see them later that night walking out on the beach enjoying the moonlight.

And, if you ask me, this scare tactic will fail. If they tried this pamphlet thing in Utah or New Hampshire where folks are low key and very polite, but in South Florida where Everybody is loud and uses their hands to speak?

"Margaret. Look at that! Those people are gesturing and screaming!"
"Indeed they are Percival. Ask the Policeman over there if everything is allright"
"Right you are dear. Excuse me Officer. Those two gentleman over there, Are they about to fight? Shall we fear an exchgange of gunfire?"
"No sir, they are priests and they are deciding if they should get fries with their burgers or should go healthy and order salads."

AZ has been a stand-your-ground and open carry state forever...no Brady Bunch ever tries to stop our visitors! Shall issue CCW and a Democrat governor who expands CCW, plus putiing firearm training in public schools might be too much for them to handly without copious champagne....

Armoredman:
The brady fliers tell our visitors that florida is the ONLY State that has the stand your ground provision in it's law. They also scream it on tv during interviews.
Notice that these fliers are being passed out in Miami. Try doing that on the west coast. It could get really interesting.

Aye, boys I believe we've got the buggers on the run. Their lies, half truths and other B.S. is just getting louder and farther from reality all the time. Eventually even the most jaded citizen will see that none of their dire predictions of 'blood in the streets' has come true. They put out the same propaganda at every state that has adopted Concealed Carry and the only notable thing that happens is that crime goes down.

Keep up the good work Florida. Attaboy Miggy, thanks for taking the time to set people straight. I wish all states would adopt this type of stand your ground law. By demanding that we run in the face of thugs we create a nation of pansies unwilling to stand up for anything if you ask me.

Miggy - good work Sir :smile:

That is sorta gladdening - I have no problem with those idiots digging themselves a hole.

Thing is - not just the tourist trade aspect but also there is a need to see them for what they are - interfering and scaremongering.

A couple of more natural disasters occur and people are going to start seeing the anti-gunners for what they really are...

Just another bunch of wimps that dont have balls the size of a pissant that expect someone else to take care of them when the chips are down....

the "average" Joe is already seeing the light...it seems that the silliness in New Orleans is waking some people up when it comes to depending on someone else for your well being...

Well done, Miggy. We are working on "Stand your ground...you can't sue us" legislation modeled after Forida's. Can't come too soon for me. After a couple years of carry here, open or concealed, the anti's words are starting to ring hollow. The skunks reveal themselves by their stench whenever they spray.

typical disortion and twisting of the truth to try and scare folks into more gun restrictions.

I have had a 50(or so) % increase in my requests for my military dependents CCW class. My local and simi-local gunshops have told me that people are ordering ammo by the case(s).

Yup! You got to watch that Florida bunch. Why, every time they come up with one of these stupid laws that will get 90% of the population killed in cold blood, the damn crime rate goes DOWN. What ARE these idiots thinking? :confused: :biggrin:

I have a comment about the Brady group, but I want to stay on this board.......... :wink:

Thanks guys. It is our duty to spread the word and correct the misinformation that our less-than-honorable oponents give away and to do so in a calm and polite manner even when we feel the urge to scream our heads out or risk our jobs.
I tried to do the same using the letters to the editor, but I given up in that area. Newspapers have the game rigged to favor their political views and rather see their sales plummet than represent publish the feelings of their readers. I even had a letter edited to change its meaning in favor of gun control and published afterwards.

So, what we have left is the Net with places like this and good old grassroots by talking to people one on one. It is tiresome, but I think effective. I specially like it when you are done talking to somebody and they ask themselves why did the press lie about the issue. You can see that their trust for the Media has gone out the window and maybe next time they will not accept what's on the news so readily.

I think it's just swell that they've found something for the Brady kids to do, and it's better than staying at home weeping over the fact that people are permitted to defend themselves. They should send as many of them as they can muster to airports and bus terminals around the country asking people to be polite to one another. Hell, they could join up with the krishna's and dress real cool, bring the tamborines and make a show out of it. I'd toss a quarter into the hat to see that.
