The Second Amendment fetish is strong in Florida as two Republican state legislators have managed to propose separate bills that truly compliment each other.
First, there's state Senator Greg Evers who has introduced a bill that would allow firearms, even concealed ones, to be carried on college and university campuses.
Because letting the monotony of periodic binge drinking be complimented with gunfire is truly a chance to teach the "benefits" not only of the Second Amendment but also the diminished capacity defense.
And this shall be complimented by the bill introduced by one put forth by Rep. Jason Brodeur to make it a felony...
...for a physician or staff member to ask patients or family members of patients if they own guns or store guns at home. If found guilty, the medical provider could be fined up to $5 million or face up to five years in jail.
Oh, sure it tries to turn the Second Amendment into a way to shoot the First Amendment to death; sure it would make, for example, counseling those with suicidal ideation impossible.
But this is Florida, these are Republicans, and the NRA's state lobbyist considers the latter the most important item in this years legislative session.
