Upon reading the July 31 article, Fla. Gov. criticizes Jesse Jackson, that our esteemed governor, Rick Scott, feels Rev. Jesse Jackson should apologize to the residents of the “Gunshine” state of Florida, I found myself gagging. If anyone needs to apologize, it’s Gov. Scott. We are one of 22 states that has this despicable law on our books, and our state has the worst wording of them all.
Stand Your Ground was first drafted by the NRA, which is no big surprise. The fact that not a day goes by without multiple murders is reason enough to repeal this law. Gov. Scott needs to apologize to those who have been in the state Capitol for a peaceful protest, and he simply chooses to tell them to go home.
Well, I certainly do wish that he goes home, which means to leave the highest office in our state, so that someone more caring and better qualified can take over and clean up this mess.
