Senior citizen should not have guns either. My g-ma would have shot me now, for sure. Florida is in grave danger!

Hmmmm. An error rate of less than 1/2 of 1%. For Government?

Go Florida, it's your birthday....

"I think the system, somewhere down the line, is broken."


Well, DUH.

100 guns on the wall 100 loaded guns.
Take one down, give to a criminal.
99 guns on the wall.

Exactly, Punkin.

And "That's an alarming increase" Coral Springs Police Chief Duncan Foster said.

Master of the Understatement, the chief is.

"in Broward County, which includes Fort Lauderdale, it went from 25 to 35,884.

'That's an alarming increase,' Coral Springs Police Chief Duncan Foster said."

Understatement? They report, you decide.

Ooops, I didn't see Jeff's comment before I posted mine.

how disturbing is this? Harry Potter reality show:

The NRA is complicit? Prove it.

Not to worry, the government shut down public access to the records, so I'm sure everything is all fixed up now! Not.

ATF = AK-47s To Florida?

(sigh)

Required non-funny explanation:

The headline is bogus. The people getting permits are NOT felons. Many of them made a good-faith attempt, but the judges decided not to go the distance. They were given something that around here they call "Suspended Imposition of Sentence" which means that you're almost found guilty. They set it all up and then give you some conditions you have to follow (generally, don't do anything illegal for a few years). If you fulfill the conditions then the whole incident is (technically) wiped from the books. The idea behind the system is that it's to be used for folks who've made 'that one mistake' so they don't ruin their life.

So as noted, the headline is bogus because these people are not felons. Now if they did an article questioning the judgment of the judges involved in some of these cases...

Sorry but the continuing efforts to demonize a group (concealed carry permit holders) that has a lower arrest rate than uniformed law officers annoys me. I know, gun control isn't about guns, it's about control, but still it annoys me.

Things like this are why my contribution to the war on drugs is to offer people who want that feeling of dizziness, disorientation, and financial loss free thwacks to the back of the head for the very reasonable fee of whatever they have in their wallet.

gumball, steve?

Hi nice comments The term "gun" has also taken on a more generic meaning, by which it has come to refer to any one of a number of trigger-initiated, hand-held, and hand-directed implements, especially with an extending bore, which thereby resemble the class of weapon in either form or concept. Examples of this usage include staple gun, nail gun, glue gun, grease gun. Occasionally, this tendency is ironically reversed, such as the case of the American M3 submachine gun which carries the nickname "Grease Gun"
