For the record, the killing of 20 innocent school children in Connecticut was about the most horrible thing I have heard in years. The kids, of course, didn't deserve it -- and Florida needs to act. We are preparing to issue our 1 millionth concealed weapons permit
next week. And we have blocked cities from sensibly limiting firearms.
This is a national tragedy that will, over the next few weeks, enter every home in the nation. Online petitions are already circulating. And the Florida legislative session is around the corner. It starts in mid-March.
Stand Your Ground ought to be repealed or at least substantially overhauled. A law passed last year that prohibits good gun laws should also be amended.
