Think about it: What kind of adult, other than a paranoid, a menace, or a sociopath, would even want to carry and display a lethal weapon in a public place? What remains of public safety in Florida will evaporate the day we allow the angriest and most paranoid of Florida’s citizens to wave loaded guns on our streets and in our places of education, recreation, travel, and public discourse.
Philip K. Stoddard is mayor of South Miami.
So, according to the mayor of South Miami, all 45 states with Open Carry must have all semblance of safety evaporated and their citizens must be paranoids, menace or sociopath. Damn, that is a nice to say about millions of people from the mayor of a city of very white, very Democrat city barely over two square miles and a population that could barely fill one-third of the Marlins Park.
And yes, he belongs to Mayors Being Arrested for Corruption, Gun Charges and Other Felonies (A.K.A. Mayors Against Illegal Guns.)
We are not surprised.
