Story is false.
Florida houses don't have laundry room doors
Or laundry rooms by the looks of it.

In some older Florida Apartment complexes, which are 55+ frequently have laundry rooms.

Step 1: dial back all firearms restrictions and stoke gun culture until everyone has a gun

Step 2: use social and.consetvative media to short circuit everyone's self.control a d fill them with unbridled rage and self righteousness.

Step 3:... umm.... profit?

Republicans are going to be so conflicted because a white man used his 2A rights to shoot and kill somebody, but the deceased was a white president of an HOA fighting to keep order in the property and had just put up xmas decorations.

Therefore this will be ignored.

According to deputies, Hootman has a concealed carry permit and kept his gun in his pocket for protection to murder people that slightly crossed him, the true fantasy of all gun owners.

Those were men.
All we have now are these f**king sissies with their guns.
A pussy with a gun in his hand is still a pussy.
The funny thing is they think they are tough, and call people who can manage to go to the liquor store unarmed cowards.

So one angry old guy decided he could be a prick to his neighbors with no consequences, and another angry old guy figured he could just dole out a major overreaction, and now they're both out of my way.

Meh.

Florida is filled to overflowing with subhuman garbage. When my dad asked why I don't go down to visit him, I point out that last time I was there within five miles of his house I saw a billboard saying "She's your daughter, not your date" and another saying that stove burners shouldn't be used to discipline children. No human adult should need to be told those things, yet the monsters in America's damgly bits voted for Trump twice and DeSantis twice, despite having seen them in action. The sooner the ocean reclaims that monument to stupidity, the better.

Shooting the head of an HOA could be considered a public service by some people.

For the gun companies, yes.

They can't even be sued easily as the federal government has given them protection that no other industry has.

They view the second amendment as the right to have customers, and they're damned well going to make sure the NRA protects that right for them

Or when Digger yanks open a guy's toenail like it's a car hood.

Yet another example of why we're all endangered by people carrying firearms all the time. Silly little situations like this don't turn deadly - or even mildly dangerous - when people are unarmed. Getting into disputes and arguments - even heated ones - is a normal part of life. Killing someone as a result is definitely not.

This is EXACTLY WHY people owning guns is a bad idea. You could be a normal, rational, intelligent person who thinks they'd never, ever do something like this. But all it takes is a single moment of rage, of your emotions getting the best of you, and you wind up doing something you instantly regret. It happens to everyone at some point. You do something or say something in the heat of the moment and then, after you've had time to cool down, you realize it was something stupid that didn't warrant that reaction.

Except when you have a gun, instead of yelling at somebody, or hitting somebody, you've killed somebody. "An armed society is a polite society" is the DUMBEST FARKING SENTENCE because it assumes everyone is always a rational individual in constant control of themselves when in reality we're all still animals occasionally over-ridden by emotions and instincts.

"According to deputies, Hootman has a concealed carry permit and kept his gun in his pocket for protection."

Because how else are you going to stay safe from the life threatening menace of a neighbor that won't apologize when you demand it?

Every Karen and Chad in America is a "permilles carry" law away from shooting people instead of demanding to see the manager or calling the cops on people for being black in their the neighborhood.

North Florida is a complete hellhole, and the rest isn't much better. There's no point in using hyperbole to describe it, as they'd take it as a challenge to be even worse.

If they left the lint in the dryers after using, the shooting is fully justified.
