So Florida law is cool with this. The cops are not cool with this, but tell me there’s nothing they can do. The city attorney says he can do nothing. The NRA threatens any town that dares try to pass an ordinance against this. And best yet, crazy governor Scott made certain in 2011 that any public official trying to pass a local ordinance or otherwise prevent this would be removed, fined $5,000 and barred from using public resources to defend him/herself.But nothing says we can’t flood to the Governor’s email, the Mayor’s email. Nothing says we cannot shame this city, this state, this nation gone insane.

Sometimes I’m so shocked by our irrationality I’m at a loss for words. Tonight is such a night. Tonight our little community, my son, my neighbors — we need your help. Please. Call. Email. Tweet. Share. Raise hell, because hell has visited upon our quiet little neighborhood, our city, our state, our nation.
