Florida To Enact Constitutional Carry; Democrat Orlando Sheriff John Mina Whines And Falsely Claims Cops Are Against It

Analysis by Letters To The Beast


Orange County Sheriff John Mina discusses new Florida permitless carry gun law

It should have happened decades ago. It should have happened after Nikki Fried’s mysterious come-from-behind “victory” in the Agriculture Commissioner race in 2018 (Florida’s Agriculture Commissioner issues – and revokes – conceal carry permits) where Matt Caldwell went to bed on the evening of November 6, 2018 as the declared winner, only to wake up the next morning to the news that Fried had, in fact, “won.”

It certainly should have happened during the BLM / Antifa riots of 2020.

But it has only now happened.

The Florida state legislature has finally passed legislation which declares, for the benefit of Florida’s armed municipal and state agents and the Soros state’s attorneys (district attorneys) who are too stupid to read the Second Amendment, that the good people of Florida do indeed have the right to carry a firearm whether they like it or not.


“Stupid cops” like Shelby Riggs-Hopkins, who arrested a man for criminal possession of Krispy Kreme, which she “thought” it was meth. That’s what this kind of legislation is aimed at. They shouldn’t need the Second Amendment spelled out for them, but sadly, they do.

And Orange County (Orlando) sheriff, Democrat John Mina, definitely does not like it.

Democrat-friendly Antifa television station WKMG channel 6 in Orlando quoted Mina as saying, “It has become a political issue and somewhere along the lines we stopped listening to law enforcement, the men and women who patrol the streets every night at risk of their own lives…Go ask the street cop what he or she thinks about encountering lots of people with a gun stuck in their waistband. It’s not gonna make our communities safer, it’s gonna make them more dangerous.”

Okay, John…Let’s check that.

“The Florida PBA proudly supports the proposed Constitutional Carry legislation spearheaded by Governor Ron DeSantis, Senate President Kathleen Passidomo and House Speaker Paul Renner. We thank Senator Jay Collins and State Representative Chuck Brannan for sponsoring this key legislation, which will enable Floridians to legally and responsibly protect themselves and enhance public safety in communities throughout our state. This Bill has already cleared its first hurdle when it recently passed the House Constitutional Rights, Rule of Law, and Government Operations Subcommittee. We urge the full legislature to pass this legislation and send it to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law.”

As for the first part of Mina’s whopper, many fervent supporters of “law enforcement” “stopped listening” some time in 2020 when his Antifa and BLM allies (before whom he literally kneeled on June 1, 2020) were allowed to burn down the entire United States unimpeded as cops gave up their police cars and even their police stations. The Marxists only encountered resistance when they got to…wait for it…Florida.

Law-abiding Americans may also have been more disinclined to listen to “law-enforcement” as cops zealously and enthusiastically enforced the illegal “social distancing,” mask and “vaccine” “mandates” throughout 2020 and 2021. They were probably even more disenchanted with “the blue” as supporters of former president Donald Trump were rounded up – based on questionable evidence – to be sent to the D.C. gulag and held without trial, access to counsel or family, tortured and worse.

As for your humble correspondent, he became skeptical of “law enforcement” long before that.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Orlando…

“Hey! The cops are fighting back! Are they allowed to do that?!”

And just so there’s no misunderstanding…

With regard to Mina’s rhetoric about “people with guns stuck in their waistbands,” Mina is either too stupid to realize, or believes his listening, reading and viewing audience is too stupid to realize (or both) that cops have been interacting with people “with guns stuck in their waistbands” since conceal carry was enacted in Florida over 30 years ago.

And, in that time, those permit holders have never had a duty to inform a police officer that they were carrying (though many would volunteer as a “courtesy”).

As for as the thugs, who make up a significant demographic of Mina’s Democrat constituency, they have rarely bothered to obtain a carry permit. They had guns stuck in their waistbands before they needed a permit, and they will still have guns stuck in their waistbands after July 1, when constitutional carry is enacted. And the cops will deal with them the same way then as they do now.

While it is unfortunate that this legislation doesn’t clarify the right of Floridians to carry openly as well, it is a good start and a shot across the bow of the Soros prosecutors in Florida’s many Democrat shitholes (Orlando included).

Governor DeSantis may also want to consider investigating – and rectifying – the inability of Republicans and other conservative-minded would-be candidates to even access the ballot in Democrat “strongholds” such as Orlando.

Florida is about to get a helluva lot safer. The state’s liberal corporate media are in a panic because they will no longer be able to cover up the good-guy-with-a-gun stories. And the media relations people at police and sheriff’s departments across the state won’t be able to, either.
