  •  And speaking of US v. USSR (1+ / 0-)

    Your statement

    What began as fear induced by propaganda from a well funded weapons manufacturer has become an arms race of individual citizens.
    makes it sounds as if you see the Americans who buy guns enacting the Reagan-era US v. USSR relationship. Are things really that bad in your corner of Florida?

    If so, I'm really sorry.

    -7.75, -8.10; Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? . . . and respect the dignity of every human being.

    •  We do have Rick Scott for a governor... (4+ / 0-)

      No, all kidding aside. I was only examining the "slippery slope" rationale that Florida's gun "enthusiasts" use to justify bigger arsenals. I would like to see some rational de-escalation of the gun recommendations from the NRA. We've had several murders this year that have gotten national attention claiming "stand your ground". Our Secretary of State brags about concealed carry permits in excess of a million. One of our Repub leaders in the state legislature is proposing "weaponizing" our teachers. As I said, what could go wrong with that combo? Our legislature appears to be in competition with Arizona to see who can win the insane "wild west" arms race. An armed, untrained, inebriated cowboy still fighting the Civil War doesn't equate to a safer population. I agree with Crashing Vor. Our gov't has some really BIG weapons at it's disposal. It's really no contest.
