Gun control group to run ads warning about self-defense shootingsWhen I lived in Florida, we actually had hunting seasons on foreign tourists, the expressway rest stops were fondly known as "killing zones," and getting lost coming out of Miami International was tantamont to a death sentence! The CCW laws changed all that.
A gun control group is set to start running ads contending that a new Florida law allowing people to act in self defense without first trying to flee will make it more dangerous to come here.
On Oct. 1, the day the new law takes effect, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence will run ads in newspapers in London, Chicago, Boston and Detroit that contend that visitors will now "face a greater risk of bodily harm in Florida," The Miami Herald reported Friday.
The group will also hand out fliers to arriving passengers at Miami International Airport drawing attention to the law, which passed the Legislature overwhelmingly earlier this year.
You know, as desperate as Brady is, if we could just get the firearms industry to take a couple of hours off from promoting all-hunting all-the-time, we could drive the final nails in those idiots' coffin and be done with 'em.
