Gosh CNN, is that a shotgun in your pocket or are you just glad to see us?
And they wonder why NO ONE takes them seriously.
• In Florida, you don’t need a permit to conceal carry a rifle or shotgun, although you do need it to conceal carry a handgun
• You can buy as many guns as you want at one time, because Florida doesn’t regulate that eitherhttps://t.co/EGpPSeO0g5

The Giffords Law Center, a gun-control advocacy group that tracks firearms legislation, gave Florida an “F” grade for its gun laws in 2016. The law center says Florida has 12 gun deaths per 100,000, the 25th-highest rate in the nation.
Florida also has the “stand your ground” law, which the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action describes as a person having no “duty to retreat” if they’re attacked in a place where they have a legal right to be.
“Instead, you may stand your ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if you reasonably believe it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm to yourself or others,” the institute says.
Why wouldn’t you want someone to be able to stand their ground and protect themselves if need be? Hrm.
And FYI, CNN’s expert ‘grader’ is Gabby Gifford’s group so it’s TOTALLY not biased at all.
“Why don’t people take our pleas on gun control seriously?” CNN asked while attempting to shove a shotgun down its pants https://t.co/JNnkUlnlNn

There can be ONLY ONE.
You will, however, have to either have huge pockets or be about 9 feet tall.

Neither of these points is relevant to yesterday’s shooting

No one has EVER accused CNN of worrying about being relevant.
What better way to draw attention to yourself than shoving a rifle down your pants then walking like a peg leg or concealing it in a trench coat because wearing a trench coat in Florida is totes normal.

‘I’M A PIRATE!’
Is that a sniper rifle in your pants or are you just happy to see me?
