Your Right To Bear Arms Is A Responsibility To Store Them Properly
One of the things that makes the USA such a unique country compared to other nations is the constitutional right that all Americans have to own and use a firearm in the name of self defense, or should a tyrannical government oppress our rights, to defend ourselves against that tyranny. It means that whether you live in Washington State or right here in Florida, you will always be able to legally purchase, own and operate a firearm, should you wish. Provided that you follow all the laws our nation and states, there is nothing anyone can do to take that firearm away from you.
However, the important thing to note here is that you must obey the law. Obviously, people that take their firearms and indiscriminately shoot at passersby are no longer law abiding citizens, they are criminals. Their right to retain that firearm was surrendered the moment they opened fire on innocent people.
This responsibility to use a firearm in a safe and legal manner also extends to what you do with the firearm when it is not in use. It... ...read full post

The Truth About What You Are Owed After An Accident
When you're injured in an accident in Florida, it can leave you struggling to know what to do or where to turn. After all, you'll likely have physical injuries to recover from, mental and emotional stress, and heft bills and financial burdens caused by the accident. While medical professionals can help you heal physically, getting compensation for your injuries is the only real way to make a total recovery in terms of your finances.
But understanding what you are owed is more complicated than some might realize, and taking the time to understand a few basics is important to ensure that you don't get taken advantage of by insurance companies and lawyers for the person responsible for your injuries.
Are You Owed?
The first thing to understand is whether or not you're owed anything at all. Under Florida law, motorists have to carry PIP coverage that provides personal protection for them no matter who is at fault. But, in some instances you could seek additional restitution.

Is Your Home Or Business Safe From Premises Liability?
Whether you only have a home to take care of, or you’re a business person with a place of work that you also own and maintain, in either case, you have certain legal responsibilities. When you own property, whether it is strictly residential, or for additional professional reasons, you, as the owner, are expected to create a safe environment.
This is the same legal courtesy that you are extended as a visitor any time you go to someone’s home, or you go to a public space, such as a government office, or a retail space like a shopping mall. You go in with the expectation that you will have a safe experience, because the owners of the property have taken the time to ensure that nothing dangerous in the environment will put you at risk or injure you. And if something should happen to you on the property that results in an injury, if it’s clear that this happened due to the property owner being careless, that is a case of premises liability, and it means that a personal injury—and in some cases, more specifically... ...read full post
Can A Road Be At Fault In An Accident?
When an accident occurs on our Florida roads, almost invariably the investigation into trying to pinpoint the cause will look at human error first. This is the most common cause of accidents, whether it is someone texting on the phone while driving, or a driver not realizing that changing lanes is about to cause a collision with a much smaller, harder to see motorcyclist. In some rare cases, an accident may occur due to a design or manufacturing defect in a car, such as safety devices not working, as intended, thus causing injuries to occur when they shouldn’t or making injuries more serious than they should be.
But there are some instances when it’s not human error that is the result of an accident, nor is it a manufacturing or design flaw in a vehicle. Sometimes the cause of an accident may be the environment itself. But if that’s the case, then who is at fault and what are the legal options?
In most cases, when we look at government infrastructure such as dams, railroad tracks, military bases and other examples of facilities... ...read full post
