Florida Gun Law went through..

Hey ya'll, Im new to the forums but not hunting.

I felt like if I should share this with ya'll. Florida just approved of the law that South Floridians can carry a gun and shoot if feeling threatened. Now, the atmosphere and type of life style South Florida lives.. it's a knock on the devils door. It's a bunch of delinquints and "hoodlums" running around malls and hangouts were innocent people go to. Now it's nice that our Governor or whoever passed that law trusts us.. but.. I think it's an un-safe law. I mean... imagine a 19 year old teenager with a history of violence that looks up to rap music goes to a mall and bumps into another teen named Mike, and Mike says "Hey excuse me".. can he feel threatened by the tone of the voice of Mike? Sure he can.. according to the 19 year old. I mean it's really scary walking around the streets of South Beach anyway.. imagine now with this law..

Now if I'm mistaken by any of this. PLEASE! let me know. Cause Im not really familiar with it. I just heard over the radio that the law went through and it's been in the back of my mind the whole day.

Thanks for listening.... err, reading.

My advice, don't listen to the media hype.

BTW - Welcome to the BGH forums!

we just got our conceal and carry law passed again. this time it takes a little work to get it. Before all you had to do was sign up and get a permit.

Hi FLbowhunter,

The law is Florida's Castle Doctrine and is described here:

The scenario you describe regarding the mall does not apply to castle doctrine because neither party is in their private dwelling.
