Perhaps it is time that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement takes away the responsibility of overseeing concealed weapons from the Department of Agriculture? Just because having a gun in Florida is a constitutionally protected right does not mean it should be so cheap and so easy.
Shouldn’t exercising a right be, by the very concept of a right, “cheap” and “easy?” Does our HuffPo lawyer columnist believe that one can tax speech? What about the right to marry? The Supreme Court of the United State has said “no,” that free speech may not be taxes. And at least one state has said no to marriage. How can a right be constitutionally protected if the citizen may be taxed and frustrated from its exercise?
Mr. Aronfeld, if you don’t like the idea of keeping and bearing arms being a right, then just say so. Suggesting it’s some special right that deserves no real protection is intellectually dishonest and unworthy of a legal mind.
