FL GOP’s Stupid New Gun Bill
There is a movement afoot to make Florida a “permitless” state which means that anyone could carry a concealed firearm without a permit.
The GOP legislators who are backing this proposal are incredibly stupid because, under the current reciprocal agreements, Florida residents who have Florida carry permits can legally carry concealed firearms in 39 other states.
If the legislature passes such a bill, this would mean that Florida residents would no longer be legally able to carry firearms in 15 states where they can presently carry concealed weapons.
There are now 25 states where permitless carry is permitted. Those states will allow residents from other states that have enacted permitless carry to also carry in their states. Paradoxically, if you come from a state that issues carry permits, you will not be able to carry in a permitless state even though, since you are licensed in another state, you have theoretically, at least, risen to a higher level of certification, since most states that issue permits also require gun owners to demonstrate basic firearms competency.
If this bill is passed by Florida’s fascist legislature and signed by the state’s fascist governor, the number of states where Floridians can carry their guns will be reduced from 40 (including Florida) to just 25. That won’t help Floridians but it will help the 25 states that will not permit unpermitted Floridians to carry firearms in their states.

Stupid is as stupid does.
However, when it comes to public policy that’s an extremely dangerous position, posture, and protocol…
DeSantis is a cancer trying to metastasize and spread throughout the body politic…

I had a helluva time trying to get the link to my post on Desantis.
It seems that when I click on my byline, your profile and post history appears…
Would you please look into this apparent ‘glitch’ and make the necessary adjustments…

Ron, I really have no idea why or how this started happening. I haven’t been playing with the site so it can’t be anything I have done recently because I haven’t done anything to the site recently. The only thing I can think of is to install the recent updates, which I try to avoid since the updates are almost always worse than the previous version. I will have to delve into this a bit more.

I was able to retrieve the link to your article on Desantis:
(Note: add ‘HTTP://’ to get the complete URL.)
There is a definite problem with the linking of user names to my account but the technique for locating your own article is to:
1. Go to the backend by clicking on BindleSnitch on the black banner at the top of the screen.
2. Click on Posts in the left hand column. This should open up a listing of all of your posts.
3. Go to the Search function on the upper right hand corner of the home screen.
4. Enter the search term (in this case, Desantis) and click on the Search Posts button.
5. Select the article that you want to retrieve the link for from the pick list.
6. Click on VIEW under the name of the article, This should open the article as it exists on the website
7. Now, simply cpy the URL. This is the link to the article.
It takes around ten seconds to actually do this once you have the steps down.
