    They say they are working for the people yet they do what they want and not what the people want. Let's give criminals an extra sense of security knowing if we defend ourselfs we go to jail. The people that run Sarasota are fools in my opinion.

    I believe it's time to clean out these politicians that say they're the 'voice of the people'. I guarantee you that if you take a poll of your Sarasota County citizens, as well as the entire state of Florida, you will find an overwhelming demand to NOT repeal this law. You start taking away our inalienable right to defend ourselves then all that's left are criminals that will run rampant unchecked.
