Palm Beach Shooting Center is located on Industrial Street in Lake Worth. It has classes for all levels from the complete beginner or someone looking to learn how to defend himself to the shooting expert.
Monday night a group of family and friends went to the Palm Beach Shooting Center to take a course for a concealed weapons license. Crime is escalating in our country and in Lake Worth it's out of control. Recently in my community a criminal entered an elderly woman's condo while she was sitting on her couch. The door was locked but he still managed to get inside. If she had a gun, she would have been justified in the kill.
We were there for a Concealed Weapons License. This is a basic course that covers, firearms safety, your legal responsibility and Florida law requirements. One topic it touched upon was Stand Your Ground, the very controversial law in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case. If you recall, Zimmerman fatally shot Martin in Sanford, Florida and the following year, he was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter. The instructor said that Florida had the best gun laws in the country.
We have always had racial tensions but they have been worse under Obama. I believe it was the Zimmerman case that started the escalation of the violence towards authority and whites today. The Department of Justice hounded Zimmerman for three years. They investigated him on civil rights charges and concluded there was insufficient evidence and there was no "hate crime."
Zimmerman criticized the government and President Obama. He believed
Obama inflamed racial tensions. "He by far overstretched, overreached,
even broke the law in certain aspects to where you have an innocent
American being prosecuted by the federal government," Zimmerman said. Source: Wikipedia. “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Obama said.
