""You act like this was inevitable and unpreventable, but it happened because Florida decided to give out concealed permits easily and without requiring training on an ongoing basis.""
A former cop isnt just anyone, and I seriously doubt he would have benefited from mandatory periodic training.
From what I read of the incident, I'm a little satisfied that a smartass got popped. It's unfortunate that he is dead and unable to correct his lack of courtesy, but I think that people that behave like that are better off being somewhere they can't cause problems for other people. That place being a hospital bed.
I view this incident by an analogy. Two drunk drivers colliding head-on. Unlike the Trayvon Martin case, this guy isnt getting off. There are witnesses.
