  • Florida Sheriffs declare, "You are the first line of defense,"

    Arm Yourselves !
    TAMPA, Florida -- With a backdrop of terrorism in California, mass shootings on college campuses and jihad in Paris, a handful of Florida sheriffs are urging citizens to arm themselves to be the first line of defense in such attacks.

    That has outraged gun control advocates, who say the public is in more -- not less -- danger when there are more guns are on the street.

    The debate between gun advocates and gun control supporters got new traction in recent days with some sheriffs suggesting more citizens should carry guns to protect;

    The Sheriff is telling me nothing that I haven't known for the last 50+ years, the first line for my defense is me, that is why vehemently oppose any politician or legislator that proposes that I can not defend myself first and must call authorities also that is why whenever politicians whine about guns and want to pass useless feel good legislation I become a single issue voter, it doesn't matter to me what party they belongs to.

      There has been violent crime long before guns came along. Even if you were to make all guns illegal criminals will still find a way to get them. On saying that I don't know why people think that if all law abiding citizens started carrying a gun crime would stop. A desperate criminal or terrorist is going to find a way to strike whether your carrying a gun or not.

        He's a day late and more than a few rounds short, but at least he's acknowledging publicly what Americans have known since 9/11 - we're on our own.

          In the wake of Sandy Hook gun sales and relaxation of concealed carry statutes have been on the rise.

          Recently the Feds handled 185,000 weapon sales background checks in a single day, and these only represent the sales which went through licensed dealers; private citizen-to-private citizen sales do not require a check.

          The reality is settling in: self defense is the best defense.

            Then again, this might be more likely in other states as well; Idaho, Montana, ...
