Re: Revisions In Fla. Laws ....
>St. Petersburg Police Chief Chuck Harmon said going after individuals in such cases seems extreme.
"I think they went overboard. I understand if they want to regulate state gun laws as the Legislature has the authority to do. But what happens to an officer who may misapply an ordinance? That seems like an awful lot of penalties for something that may be unintentional," Harmon told the Times.<
Ahhhh. Poor poor St. Pete cops. What they were doing has only been illegal since 1985. They did it anyhow, and now they might get their hands slapped. My heart flippin' bleeds for 'em.
If the town of Two Egg was to pass a law saying you could not carry a gun in the town limits, then yes, fine the Mayor and the City Commission - every last member - a hundred grand each. And if the cop (and I'm sure there's only one - Two Egg ain't that big a town) was to arrest me for carrying a gun in town, then slap him with a 5000 dollar fine. Why? Because it's illegal. Because when he arrested me HE broke the law. The law that's been in effect for 36 years.
