Everytown Stalking National Reciprocity

And the image that evokes is some Florida sexual predator wearing a trench coat ogling some poor coed in NY city through the window ready to pounce on her. And he has a gun ZOMG! Do it for the babes wearing flimsy undies!

Florida indeed does have Stalking as a misdemeanor which means you can be found guilty of it and still carry. The statute (784.048) reads:

A person who willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follows, harasses, or cyberstalks another person commits the offense of stalking, a misdemeanor of the first degree.

So that pretty much covers any annoying neighbor/coworker that keeps hounding you because of the leaves of your avocado trees in your property being blown on his pool and up from there. That also would include arsehole trolls like the ones that follow this blog and assorted pests of the like.

But Florida also has (and Everytown somehow failed to mention) Aggravated Stalking:

A person who willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follows, harasses, or cyberstalks another person and makes a credible threat to that person commits the offense of aggravated stalking, a felony of the third degree.

Now, if your neighbor starts threatening you with arson or general killing because of the avocado leaves, then we have reached a new level of stupid that demands not only harsh legal intervention but also having the frigging means to defend yourself while the cops show up to arrest him or call the coroner. Interestingly, you cannot do that in New York, you just get killed.

Now, the “get these permits online” threw me for a loop. When was the law changed? I know you can download the forms online but apply? Just to be sure I went to website and checked: Nope, no online applications. You can check if you are eligible for a Florida permit via an online questionnaire and check the status of your license being processed on-line,  but you also have to either mail the requirements or present yourself to a regional office. So again it must be a New York thing to lie so blatantly, we kinda frown that behavior down here as it is uncouth.

Again and I am not getting tired of asking this question:

If your cause is so righteous, why lie?

  1. You had me at the babes in flimsy undies….

    Lie, deny, and make unsupported counter accusations.

  2. Oh Miguel,

    But you are from “The South” and just don’t know better. You think that because in the 29 years since Florida’s CCW law went into effect, and out of the 1.3 million people that have FL CCW permits, there have have been – literally – fewer CCW murders that can be counted on two hands, that means that in general CCW permit holders are normal, law abiding citizens. That’s Fox News thinking. New Yorker reading, sophisticated New Yorkers know better, because they are better. You just have to trust them. Stop trying to exert your rights, the gentle people living in their Brownstones need to be protected from sister-banging, racists like you. Now go eat something deep fried and head off to Wal-Mart.
