... I think both sides of this issue in Walton County need to step back from their sacred principles and ask themselves about why we assume so much privilege. We all work hard. We all deserve to enjoy the beach. Why not just do the right thing?
Legally removing someone's constitutional rights is what this IS about. You do understand the county is suing thousands of beach property owners, right? With your tax dollars.
Whether or not any of those property owners generously welcome guests on their property is a completely separate issue, with a multitude of varied and site-specific circumstances.
Some principles are indeed sacred.
