Remember that law in Florida that says you have the legal right to use deadly force against someone if that person is
black and wearing a hoodie causing you to feel threatened, and you have no duty to just walk away from the conflict? Turns out Florida legislators didn’t feel that law went quite far enough in encouraging all of our grandparents to kill each other. So they decided to pass another law which prohibits local governments from banning concealed firearms for any reason, in any context — even if there’s going to be a well-publicized Justin Bieber mall signing. Or if the Jersey Shore cast comes to Miami. Or if the GOP decides to host its 2012 presidential convention in Tampa Bay, and the local police are expecting over 40,000 people to attend and another 15,000 angry hippies to stand outside and protest.
Which makes sense, really. Your right to bear arms is in the Constitution. Your right to have a heartbeat is not.
Nor is your right to carry a squirt gun, a piece of string more than 6 inches long, or a metal pipe…all of which have been banned at the convention. Hmmm… glocks are permitted, but no Super Soakers, no hemp necklaces, no pipes? Methinks the hippies are being unfairly targeted. Are hacky sacks still allowed?
