More of our property tax dollars going to a good cause

Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary has decided to buy elephant guns for his force.  14 have been purchased so far and 49 total are going to be acquired at $1660 a piece according to the Orlando Sentinel article . 

I am trying to think of how many theme parks have giant animals that are located in Orange County.  I can only come up with 2.  Sea World has some polar bears (I don't think any killer whales are going to be rampaging the streets).  Animal Kingdom has a bunch of animals, but they are on Disney property which is in the incorporated City of Bay Lake (not in unincorporated Orange County).  Universal has none that I can think of.  Gatorland has alligators - wow alligators in Florida.  I can't think of any place else that has dangerous exotic animals in Orange County that would require an elephant gun to take them down.

49 * $1660 = $81,340.  Thanks for spending our property tax dollars so wisely.  We know that the budget cutting session in Tallahassee this week is going to be a tough one for you Mr. sheriff.  We know you don't have any fat in your budget and will have to cut back on your law enforcement efforts.

James and Eric - very funny. It is amazing what these politicians are willing to spend money on.  $80,000 in tax dollars pretty much wasted.  If the average tax bill is $2000, then 40 families just got ripped off.
