I only take ssue with the last part of your last sentence. You’re an attendee at a large concert with lots of people who have lots of guns. You hear shots being fired. You see lots of people around you with guns. There’s panic and confusion. You visually identify who you think might be the shooter. You shoot. Someone dies. They’re not the shooter. If you watch the videos, you’ll see there was a long stretch of time before anybody could tell where it was coming from, even the large abundant police presence who were already there for the crowds and who responded immediately. In this particular case, no. You’re mistaken. There WERE a lot of people there carrying guns and they responded.

By all accounts, the shooter was nothing extraordinary. He liked risky gambling, owned guns, moved to Las Vegas from Florida to get closer to the gambling and got a decent home in a golf community.

I hope Puerto Rico gets the response needed. Category 5 would have devastated anybody.

That was worth watching. I started watching while Scott was talking and he went over some specifics as to everything they’re doing and needs to be done. He went over specifics as to the needs of Puerto Rico, he went through his own experiences with Irma, how they’re the same and how they’re VERY different situations. They need generators. They need trucks to move things out of the ports. Puerto Rico is a mountain island and has unique issues. He’s welcoming students from Puerto Rico to continue their educations at Florida state schools at in-Florida rates. Working on re-opering some evacuation centers so people have a place to stay during recovery. I’m impressed with Gov Scott. He’s saying and doing the kinds of things I expect someone in his position should do and then some.
