    Is this insane ? Forget your blessed 2nd Amendment rights ! Our Sanibel Island causeway beaches ? What next ? Metal detectors ? I would like to at least have the illusion of safety as I go about my life, trusting that the people I encounter are more like me than not. This account does not leave me with warm, fuzzy feelings.
