    So what is our plan? Do we stop every car and do a search? How do we pay for it, do we set up road blocks at every every entry point? Is this a year round effort and how many additional folks is it going to require?

    All the more reason to have a weapon handy at the beach. One tucked into your trunks and one in the cooler. You never know when you will need to "stand your ground" over a sandcastle. The NRA claims more guns make us safer. Don't you want to be safe?

    You all can take this where you want. I remember not that long ago when there was targeted advertising. I am curious if we still do that or if it is more general in nature. I wonder if some of the change was throwing in with Visit Florida which wasn't necessarily targeting the crowds that many seemed to be accustomed to in SoWal. That being said the folks we have visiting Walton County and especially moving to Sowal do seem to be able to afford living / vacationing here, so maybe it is just a different generation of folks who can afford to visit. That being said, I am glad tourist come here and until there is some other job producing industry that provide jobs to our folks, year round I hope they continue to come.

    I doubt it, but I wasn't having issues with it either. Sometimes I wonder how much thought goes into comments we make. I know I.am guilty, at times, without thinking things all the way through. Other times I think them through and say things just to get a rise and to start a conversation. But that is just me.

    The proliferation of guns in our society is idiotic. People keep voting for the same 2A expansion politicians and then are shocked when weapons suddenly affect their world.

    I think a road block to search vehicles for weapons would pretty quickly be deemed an unreasonable search, which is illegal.

    I will bet that the Venezuelans wish that they had a "problem" with proliferation of guns. Look at history. Governments often turn on their citizens.

    New idea of Sanctuary Beaches. SOWAL could be a Sanctuary Beach Area.

    And all of this has nothing to do with the idiots bringing guns to the beach, both tourons and vendors.

    No one needs to bring guns to the beach. Period.

    People DO have a right to possess guns.

    It all comes down to competency. Our tourists coming here now don't even understand that its inappropriate to urinate in the dunes...

    That what we are working with....

    Is there a law that strictly forbids legal firearms on the beach? If not you're SOL. You could contact the NRA and ask them to assist you in drafting one to put before the legislature.

    Please share with us the exact bills tRump signed that helped "create" these jobs. 75 straight months of job growth under Obama and the Republicans along with Two Scoops Donnie declare it a "disaster" and a "mess." The first half of 2017 has numbers that exactly match the last half of 2016 and the man and his family who make all their products overseas is suddenly a genius American job creator.

    That's right. Hate to get off topic, but it amazes me that the Trump cult is totally oblivious to the fact that job growth and stock market appreciation was amazing under Obama. I don't know what rock they were living under.
