Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: MARTIAL LAW

, , Leave a comment

Mayor Buddy Dyer’s announcement that Orlando will be implementing controlled entry check points downtown is appropriate, but unfortunate. The mayor is limited in what he can do: he can’t regulate where guns can be taken or who can carry them. Regrettably, he is only left with handling the aftermath of bloodshed on the streets as seven people lie injured by gunshots in Orlando, while some legislators bandy about 2nd Amendment protections in Tallahassee. I am confident that someday collaborative common sense will pre-empt partisanship. In the meantime, however, elected officials like the mayor are unfortunately left with declaring martial law in America’s cities and schools.
