Regarding this post and all the subsequent comments:

I'm anti-gun. I'm anti-Florida. I'm anti-Jeb Bush. I'm anti-pretty much any real world scenario where we encourage the "I need a gun to survive" mentality. If that makes me lop sided and someone who "believed the media hype" then so be it.

I liked shooting guns at the range. I will never like guns outside of that scenario. I have my reasons and all of them are real world "yeah, I was there" sort of reasons that don't involve whatever "media hype" supposedly goes around about the use of guns.

It's cool that people don't have to be opened up to prosecution from the bad guy's family if they accidentally kill someone while defending their own life. But to pretend that this doesn't present the potential for future bad laws built off of this one is kidding yourself both about our current leader ship and the american-right's increasingly bellicose nature.

Also, it's FLORIDA. Not exactly a bastion of well people making good decisions. Florida is a cess pit of the stupid and the inbred. It's pretty to visit if you never ever talk to a local. But that's about it.

well, the son of a sheriff thing is enough (but now I have son of a preacher man stuck in my head). I grew up with guns in the house but all I ever remember actually seeing my dad *use* a gun for was an air pistol he would take out to the canal and shoot Musk Rats with.

Very very safe = great. People who actually take the time to learn about guns are usually the type of people who want ALL gun owners to be... but in a chunk of my experience, they aren't. very unfortunately.
