Florida Pulse Gay Bar Mass Shooting was in a Gun Free Zone

Overhead of Pulse Club in Orlando, Florida


Yet another terrorist mass killing takes place in a gun free zone, this time in Florida.

The mass public killing that took place in Florida this morning at the self described "Orlando's hottest gay bar". From the pulseorlandoclub.com:
 Experience Pulse, a world of fun and fantasy. Orlando’s hottest gay bar located in the heart of downtown. Step inside Pulse and savor the taste of three unique worlds: The Lounge, Ultra Bar and The Adonis Room. Since 2004, Pulse has been serving up unmatched live entertainment and tantalizing liquid libations, courtesy of our renowned staff and entertainers.

 It is clear that Florida law prohibits people from legally carrying guns into Any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose.

Bars are one of a long list of places that Florida establishes as gun free zones. From Florida Statutes leg.state.fl.us:
(12)(a) A license issued under this section does not authorize any person to openly carry a handgun or carry a concealed weapon or firearm into:
1. Any place of nuisance as defined in s. 823.05;
2. Any police, sheriff, or highway patrol station;
3. Any detention facility, prison, or jail;
4. Any courthouse;
5. Any courtroom, except that nothing in this section would preclude a judge from carrying a concealed weapon or determining who will carry a concealed weapon in his or her courtroom;
6. Any polling place;
7. Any meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or special district;
8. Any meeting of the Legislature or a committee thereof;
9. Any school, college, or professional athletic event not related to firearms;
10. Any elementary or secondary school facility or administration building;
11. Any career center;
12. Any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose;
13. Any college or university facility unless the licensee is a registered student, employee, or faculty member of such college or university and the weapon is a stun gun or nonlethal electric weapon or device designed solely for defensive purposes and the weapon does not fire a dart or projectile;
14. The inside of the passenger terminal and sterile area of any airport, provided that no person shall be prohibited from carrying any legal firearm into the terminal, which firearm is encased for shipment for purposes of checking such firearm as baggage to be lawfully transported on any aircraft; or
15. Any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law.
(b) A person licensed under this section shall not be prohibited from carrying or storing a firearm in a vehicle for lawful purposes.
Florida has the most concealed carry permits issued of any state in the nation, but it did the occupants of the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando no good because it is a gun free zone by state law.

"Gun free zone." What a joke! It will be interesting to find out what type of security this place had.

Should we wait to see how bathroom Barry will spin this or get on the move to get the list of gun free zones reduced? The time is NOW.

A permission slip does no good when the place attended has permission denied.
The problem is government claiming the power of permission in the first place.

A purpose of enumeration itself is to stop government from claiming the power of permission so it cannot arrange a situation just like the one we witness here, again, still.

Background checks, permits, all of it is a ruse and it always has been. This murderous muslim demonstrates that it is all meaningless as to actually nailing criminals. In the end, all any of the gun control did was leave a bunch of innocent people there defenseless so a criminal terrorist lunatic had a free fire zone full of people to slay at his own discretion.

Enough is Enough.

As an aside - interesting it is that Democrat politicians have conned muslims and gays and gun controllers into vote together, for democrats. How is that working out for ya, hmmmm? It isn't like we havn't tried to tell people.......

Hi Dean,

like Massad Ayoub said on his post in http://backwoodshome.com/blogs/MassadAyoob/ "The identified killer reportedly used an AR15 type rifle on the helpless victims in this gun-free zone hunting preserve for psychopathic murderers." I recently discover that some off-duty french cops were in the french theater Bataclan in 2015. It will be interesting to know, how many pulse customers were authorized to bear arms ?
THe florida law restriction about CCW in places that sell alcohol is useless. If i carry, or not, am i forced to consume alcohol ? NO. If i could carry (i'm french in france, i can't), i will not consume alcohol or very few, to be able to use correctl my gun. My life depend on my capacity of aiming right no.

god bless the victims, their families and gun owners. Continue to fight to keep your right to carry.
Best regards
Vincent

I wonder just how many concealed carry supports we just picked up?? If just five or 6 of those victims had been armed they could have stopped the shooter in seconds. I guess this clearly points out how many could have been saved if the cops were not minutes away. the shooters do not choose single shot weapons so why should the legal carriers be limited. Anyone that is not behind bars should be a legal carrier. These attackers do not check to see if you have been convicted of anything. If you are on the street you do not have any armed guards protecting you. the right to self defense is a God given right. In a fox hole you never ask what color someone is if you need protection in a situation you never ask if someone is convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony, you just pray they can shoot straight. cops always wait for back up. where is your backup in a shooting situation? the only reason for increased capacity magazines is when the person shooting at you has more rounds available than you do. I picked up three magazines at the Yuma Gun show, an 8 round a 15 round and an 18 round. Now I have six mags to carry. I also picked up a mag assist loading tool and four boxes of .45acp.
