Conceal Carry In Florida Can Get You Killed
Still developing story out of Wesley Chapel, Florida.
This morning in Wesley Chapel, Florida, in The Grove 16 Theater, Florida’s conceal carry has caused yet another senseless death. According to CNN, it happened during previews before the showing of “Lone Survivor.”
Sheriff Office spokesman Chris Nocco told WFTS-TV that one of the victims apparently was texting.
“The victim was on his cellphone — he was texting. We believe he was making some kind of noise. This noise led to an altercation,” Nocco said. “During that altercation, the suspect decided to pull out a .380”
According to Click Orlando, a good Samaritan detained the shooter until deputies arrived.
The killer has been taken into custody. The two victims were airlifted to a Tampa area hospital.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s office said that the shooter did not know the victims.
Conceal carry is promoted as a means of self-defense – not a means to settle avoidable arguments.
