Florida Man points gun at self-defense teacher, tells him ‘martial arts are crap’

George Meyer

PORT ST. LUCIE – A Port St. Lucie parent was arrested Sunday after he pointed a loaded gun at a Grace Christian Academy self-defense instructor and told him “martial arts are crap”, city police said.

“Bang, you’re dead. No way you could have got me before I pulled it out,” George Meyer, 61, reportedly said.

Meyer, whose child is a student at the school, was attending an open house when he overheard the defense instructor telling someone that a gun is not always the best choice for self-defense since it can be easily taken away, said Sgt. Frank Sabol, Port St. Lucie police spokesman. Full Story »

How medical marijuana prescription affects your right to bear arms

weed guns

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – An admitted alcoholic can legally purchase a firearm in Florida, but a recent change to a federal firearm transaction form makes it clear a person who has been prescribed medical marijuana might be giving up their second amendment rights.

Everyone who buys a gun fills out ATF form number 4473. It asks nine questions about your life. Questions like are you under indictment, been convicted of stalking, a fugitive from justice, or mentally defective.

Question 11E asks if you are an unlawful user of, or addicted to marijuana or any depressant, or narcotic. It comes with this warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains illegal under federal law, even if medical or recreational marijuana is legal in the state where you live.

Gun dealers said a person legally prescribed marijuana and telling the truth would not be sold a gun. Full Story »

Gunshots in Florida

gun-bullets

Florida, despite its fascination with guns, is actually pretty peaceful… at least out in the country parts. Nothing is more soothing than hearing the rapid fire of a semi-automatic weapon coming from your neighbor’s house after church on Sunday. On the real, old Florida Natives just enjoy shooting. Most of us aren’t violent, but we will rightfully protect our home and family. Guns are fun, and just like anything else that’s fun, they are dangerous and controversial.

That’s not to say we don’t have problems… in fact we have nothing but problems (which is why this website exists).

To exemplify our problems in a statistic:

One child is shot every 17 hours.

That info came from a well-written article on Miami Herald

The analysis found that, between 2010 and 2015, nearly 3,200 kids 17 and younger were killed or injured by firearms. Put another way, a child in Florida was shot, on average, every 17 hours.

We here at WTF Florida love our guns. We love shooting things. We fully support our 2nd amendment rights. We love guns so much it could become a new chapter in the DSM-5.

That being said, we also believe that people more fucked up than us should not have easy access to weapons. This should be a no-brainer, and a bi-partisan issue. Why the fuck is it easier to get a gun than to get a driver’s license?

Anyone can show up at a gun show with a shoddy fake ID and purchase a weapon that can be quickly modified into a fully automatic weapon. Anyone who says differently has never been to a gun show in Florida, or is full of shit.

Anyways, that’s a huge issue and we aren’t quite ready to battle this one (still working on the shark case as our first effort). In the mean time, dear Florida people, please lock up your guns when not being used, keep the safety on, and stop fucking shooting everything that moves. Thanks.

70-year-old Tequesta Man pulls a gun out in Publix checkout line

A man told police that he was walking with his girlfriend through the parking lot to the Publix on 500 North US Highway 1 when a silver Dodge Caravan sped past them, nearly hitting them, the Palm Beach Post reports. The man yelled out, “slow down (explicit).”

At the checkout line, the driver came up to the man, lifting his shirt to show a pistol and said, “You are a (explicit) and that he was all talk,” according to a Tequesta Police Department arrest report. Then, the man left.

Cohen told police that he approached the man calmly to ask “if the yelling and cursing in the parking lot was necessary,” the report said. He said the man told him, “Get the (explicit) out of my face” and took a step forward. Full Story »
