Representative Lori Berman, I thank you for sending me your email concerning Florida’s open carry bills. You stated that allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry openly their weapons in holsters on the streets and in public buildings gives you “great concern.”
You say they “pose a threat” to our “safety” in the community and to residents.
So that would be me and 1.4 million law abiding Americans who live in Florida with concealed carry permits that you are referring too, correct?
Seriously, please specify to me how an inanimate object in the hands of a well trained law abiding American poses a threat to residents and the community.
Please list for me all the threats that a holstered weapons poses. Give me 5 examples. List them 1 – 5.
I am an expert pistol and rifle shot. I have been federally and state screened to carry a concealed weapon. I was trained by the U.S. Navy to fire more weapons than your average person.
I am also a deadly shot so if a bad guy wants to play ball with me he will lose. I am not a threat to the community I am an asset.
People will feel at ease shopping in the store when they see my weapon in my holster. Bad guys will think twice about robbing the store I am in.
Ladies with a holstered weapon become secure in their surroundings knowing they have a means to defend themselves from bad people. 9-11 calls will drop dramatically.
It is you Representative Berman that is the threat to the community by refusing to uphold your oath of office to uphold and defend and protect the U.S. Constitution of the United States – the Second Amendment.
The Second Amendment gives me and every other law abiding citizen in this nation the right to carry a weapon for self defense and to protect others either concealed or in an open holster.
It is liberals like you who make the streets more dangerous with your policies, just look at Chicago. You agenda is to disarm us but you will retain “your” weapons.
Perhaps it is time for you to pack your stuff and leave Boynton Beach Florida and go back to the “Peoples Republic” of New York where you originally immigrated from.
Slap your Hillary Clinton sticker on your Michael Kors over night bag, affix your Hammer and Sickle lapel pin to your made in China jacket and take your left wing, pro socialist anti American ideology with you and stay there.
