Gun Control


When I came to Florida in December of 1979 for winter break from UW- Wisconsin, I was on the Beach in Fort Lauderdale. I Thought I had die and gone to Heaven and decided to stay. I remember thinking about my gun collection.  In Florida's Big Cities, the only thing guns are good for is to shoot people. I gave all my guns to my brothers in Wisconsin. Back then I had a 35MM SLR Nikon, a portable dark room and shot everything with a camera. For you young people, what is a dark room?

Side note: My wife Beverly former Metro-Dade Officer, then a Federal Marshal working in Miami Courthouse gave my Bother Her "Dirty Harry" Colt Python .357 Magnum and her Smith & Wesson 38 Special to my Cousin because it might be stolen and used in a crime.

Hunting is part of the food culture, not gun culture: Texas Head Chef Griffin.

It took me a while to put my finger on it, the question about open carry. No two reasons.

1. If you can see it, you can steal it.

2. I feel it's an alpha male tactic that scare women and children like saying it's your freedom of speech to yell fire in a crowded theater. I call this the Big Gun-Little Dick Complex.
