A few weeks ago I was asked to write an editorial for the Daytona Beach News Journal about Stand Your Ground. It turns out that there was also an Op-Ed by none other than anti-safety Florida State Senator Chris Smith. Sen. Smith at the time was just starting his own private Task-Farce to look at ways to screw up Florida’s Stand your Ground law. Today the kangaroo court published its recommendations to gut our self-defense laws. As you may have expected would happen; the laborious work of this Senator’s effort was a poorly written, steaming pile of horse hockey.
So after reading through this I looked back at those editorials we wrote a few weeks ago. The social media numbers for each story, published the same day, jumped out at me.
Sen. Smith, Here’s your sign:
As the paper did, I’ll give the Honorable Senator top billing here:
Should Florida change its self-defense law? Yes: State courts reputation as dangerous ground
BY SEN. CHRIS SMITH, D-FORT LAUDERDALE
Should Florida change its self-defense law? No: People have the right to defend themselves
BY SEAN CARANNA, PORT ORANGE
That’s right Anti-Second Amendment politicians…
Nobody likes you!
