I have a word of caution for those considering a visit to Florida and even those of us who live here: the NRA is winning. As most everyone is aware, Florida has a “shoot first ask questions later” law. This law allows people to shoot someone if they feel threatened. This new “warning shot” bill… Continue reading

Gun Control and Compromise: Impossible?
Probably, yes. Over the Memorial Day Weekend, there was a mass shooting you have no doubt heard of in California. Not surprisingly, there was little noise about the shooting. Why?
