Travel shots

Nope, not the kind you get for Hepatitis prophylaxis:

"Snowbirds get gun law alert: Lobby against new `shoot first' legislation targets tourists to the Sunshine State":

"As some 1.9 million snowbirds gear up for their annual pilgrimage southward, one of the nation's premier gun control organizations is taking on the National Rifle Association, Florida Governor Jeb Bush and the state's tourism industry over a new state law it has dubbed the
"shoot first" legislation.

"The NRA says the law will make Florida safer because criminals don't know who is armed. But, then again, neither do the tourists, and 352,000 Floridians are legally allowed to carry concealed weapons. [...] "more Canadians flock to Florida than visitors from any other country and ads in Canadian newspapers are coming."

Some neighbourly advice from our friends in gun-control:

"Do not argue unnecessarily with local people," the leaflet warns. "If you are involved in a traffic accident or near-miss, remain in your car and keep your hands in plain sight.
"If someone appears to be angry with you, maintain to the best of your ability a positive attitude, and do not shout or make threatening gestures."
