New Florida pro-gun/pro 2A bill(s)....
HB255 is gaining support with Florida elected leaders.
The new bill will prevent Florida gun owners from facing any discrimination or prevention of insurance.
Some major companies want to force gun/CCW license holders to pay higher premiums. This is unfair & should be illegal.
If you are a Florida resident you may want to follow this bill; HB255. I think Gov Scott would sign it but it will take some time.

Clyde! For the love of all that is good in this world! Please, I'm begging you; post an actual link to the article you're citing, not just the website itself!

Every time you talk about an online article you never actually post a link. Then a few people ask you for the link, and then someone finally just takes the time to find it for themselves. Why can't you just copy and paste the link when you're reading the article? It's there at the top of the page. If you don't know how to copy and paste on whatever device you're using, I'm sure someone here would be glad to tell you how to do it. Or you could just Google it.

As it is now, your posts are like reverse drive-bys: Instead of a link to an article with no actual commentary, you have commentary on an article with no actual link .

Correct. Users should not have to dig through an external site to find the material under discussion.

Back in June of 2008, I wrote:
Expecting people to follow your link or read the article, without any remarks by you, and discussing the event, shows an utter lack of respect for the rest of the members here at TFL, who have come to expect intelligent conversation. In other words, it is rude.
Conversely, failing to give the proper link is just as rude.
