    In Florida, printing is not an issue anymore.
    Same as inadvertently showing your gun.

    790.053 Open carrying of weapons.—
    [...] It is not a violation of this section for a person licensed to carry a concealed firearm as provided in s. 790.06(1), and who is lawfully carrying a firearm in a concealed manner, to briefly and openly display the firearm to the ordinary sight of another person, unless the firearm is intentionally displayed in an angry or threatening manner, not in necessary self-defense.[...]

    I see a lawsuit coming. Are the ambulance chasers taking numbers and standing in line?

    I bet they drove him to jail in the short bus.
    He's certainly lucky. If Daniels had been an off-duty cop (or simply a better grappler), Foster very well could have ended up eating rounds (or boot soles) as well.

    I'm the last person to assume racism but if you see a black guy walk into a store with a concealed handgun in FL and assume he's a criminal and not a legal gun owner, you're probably a tad bit racist.

    Just a guess.

    I've never carried, but I don't think I'd ever have my gun visible in public. Once I strap it on at home it doesn't get touched again until I returned. One never knows who might be watching...

  • Moron tackles legally armed Walmart patron in FL, arrested

    Michael Foster, 43, of Lithia


    Man shopping for coffee creamer at Walmart attacked by vigilante for carrying gun he was legally permitted to have

    BRANDON — Clarence Daniels had just crossed the threshold of Walmart's front doors on Tuesday, in search of coffee creamer for his wife, when the gun in hip holster gave a well-intentioned vigilante the idea he was up to something more sinister.

    From the Walmart parking lot at 11110 Causeway Boulevard, Michael Foster, 43, of Lithia had watched Daniels, 62, take from his car the handgun — for which he holds a concealed carry permit — and place it on his hip underneath his coat, Hillsborough sheriff's deputies reported.

    As Daniels entered the store, a label for the coffee creamer in his pocket in case he forgot the brand, Foster tackled him to the ground and placed him in a choke hold, sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon said.

    "He's got a gun!" deputies said Foster shouted.

    "I have a permit!" Daniels yelled back multiple times, McKinnon said.

    The men struggled and were separated until law enforcement arrived on scene just before noon. Foster was arrested and charged with battery.

    "Unfortunately he tackled a guy that was a law-abiding citizen," McKinnon said. "We understand it's alarming for people to see other people with guns, but Florida has a large population of concealed weapons permit holders."

    The Sheriff's Office recommends that vigilante-inclined citizens refrain from taking matters into their own hands, especially when an incident is gun-related. Call 911 or alert security, McKinnon said, before taking any drastic measure.

    "You better make sure there's a good reason," he added. "Otherwise you might be confronting a guy that is legally permitted to carry a gun."
