After a looting of gas station in Fort Myers, Florida, a man in Punta Gorda, a town north of there, painted a message on the plywood covering one of his store’s window, “You Loot, We Shoot.”
Fort Myers, Florida, immediately imposed a curfew.
Governor Ron DeSantis quoted the sign shortly later adding,
“Don’t even think about looting.
“Don’t even think about taking advantage of people in this vulnerable situation.
“I can tell you, in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody’s home.
“And I would not want to chance that, if I were you, given that we’re a Second Amendment state.”
