FL Sheriff Bob Gualtieri: Stand Your Ground ‘Created a Standard, That Is A Largely Subjective Standard’

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri has stated that in enacting Florida’s stand your ground law, the legislature “created a standard, that is a largely subjective standard” for the use of deadly force by a shooter.

Anti-Gunners Responsible for Pro-2A FaceBook Page Deletions

Facebook recently announced a ban of all pages that sold guns privately. Immediately after its decision, firearms-related Facebook pages that don’t enable private one-to-one sales went dark.

USA TODAY Asks: “What Does the 2nd Amendment Mean?”

Well. Sort of. What the Newspaper For Those Who Find People Magazine a Challenging Read asks in their “Quick Question” online is, “Does the Second Amendment give Individuals the right to bear arms.?” I’m guessing “Yes,” based on the Supreme Court’s decision in the landmark Heller case.
