Guns in Bars - Orlando Style

Orlando, Florida, yes the state which wears the crown.

A showdown at a popular east Orange County biker bar — with its share of fights over the past few years — led to the stabbing of one man and a deputy killing a gunman Friday.

Few details about the shooting were released, but investigators said 31-year-old Jason L. Greene opened fire on deputies Daniel Shapiro and Hector López while they tended to a stabbing victim shortly before 3 a.m. at Betty's Laughing Horse Tavern in the 900 block of North Goldenrod Road.

Shapiro was saved by a bulletproof vest, an increasingly important law-enforcement tool amid a rising tide of violence against law-enforcement officers nationwide.

Gunfire struck the upper back of Shapiro's vest, Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jim Solomons said.
What's your opinion? Is there any chance of Florida losing the crown to one of the up-and-comers? Indiana's trying.
