I have a buddy I have known since college. He is a gun guy. More than that he’s a gun industry insider. He’s worked for several gun makers including some Big (Green) ones, and is currently in working Miami with The Bull.
We were chatting and he told me that he had to put a moratorium on his wife talking about anything relating to his job. The subject is no-go in public. This is apparently a thing going on down there right now with the people he works with.
Broward County Sheriff did a press statement.
The important part starts at the 23:25 mark.
I understand the importance of vigilance, but “if your neighbor comes home from the range on Friday night, you should say something” is over the top.
When your life is guns, literally, how do you avoid becoming a suspect when the Sheriff says that.
The fear is taking this type of situation leading to a #MeToo like witch hunt that catches law abiding gun owners.
Law abiding Broward gun owners need to be careful. The is very thin line between vigilance and moral panic, and Sheriff Israel is blurring it.
