I’ve worked for two companies based in Jacksonville over the years.
At one of them, I stayed frequently at the riverfront Hyatt, along the Saint Johns river, a picturesque estuarial bend that separates downtown Jax from San Marco.
I routinely walked up the promenade to Jacksonville Landing when I had an evening to spare and an expense-account dinner to scare up.
And while it wasn’t really much of an issue for me while traveling, I thought I’d made a mental note that it was a “Gun Free Zone”.
And I was right. Just like Pulse Nightclub and Parkland High School, the law-abiding citizen is completely disarmed at Jax Landing, where yesterday’s spree shooting took place.
It’s getting too predictable.
