An angry Florida man pulled a gun on a drive-thru worker because they forgot the cream cheese with his bagel, according to Miami Gardens Police. 

Just another Saturday in Florida.

Welcome to Red State America - where "packing heat" is as common as Confederate flags...

No better way to settle an argument over a bagel than with a .357 magnum....

I'm very anti-gun, but if someone forgot the cream cheese on my bagel - well, maybe I'll give this one a pass.

Because having a gun on you is such a good idea for public safety.

Wonder how B will spin this one?

Yet another reason I'll never set foot in Florida. God only knows why people want to live there.

Yes. All soldiers, police officers, security personnel, hunters, ranchers, farmers, Olympians, sport shooters, collectors, antiques dealers, firearms instructors, vets, pest controllers, and TV and movie armorers have small brains.

Small brains and people who threaten drive-thru workers with guns over cream cheese. THAT goes hand in hand.

At least they don’t have to worry about the gang problems like in the blue states where people are defenseless except if you’re rich mad buy your defense.

Freedom, small government, 1st amendment protection, low taxes, affordable cost of living.

"The employee just happened to be the daughter of the police chief."

She should be comfortable around guns then.

I just checked, Florida is a non-permissive open carry state which means you can not carry in public places except for certain activities like hunting etc. This means that whatever this man did was illegal, but of course folks with malicious intent do not care about laws.

Now I have never been to the US but I do know that Florida has Stand Your Ground laws. Which means that if any civilian not engaged in illegal activity is attacked in any place where he or she has a right to be, he or she has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so.

So this lady was perfectly within her rights to take out her gun (if those were permitted in her workplace) and shoot him. He should count his lucky starts that he was dealing with a 23 year old girl. If I were in her place he would not have been so lucky.

Because it has Miami, it has sun and sand and beaches and baywatchers and fast cars and speedboats. Have you never watched Miami Vice?

I was thinking small something else. Being from Florida I can tell you that it is much smarter to walk away from such an aggressive person even if they are completely in the wrong because you have no idea who may pull out a gun, and the heat also makes tempers flare quicker.
