Down in Florida the state wildlife agency took a first step toward an iguana jihad, then tried to walk it back.    Maybe shotgunning lizards in a heavily populated state, where there is open carry and stand your ground, could lead to some shootouts between neighbors?   Duh.

All this anti-iguana stuff sounds so much like the White House rhetoric about other invasive species.  Speak first, think later.  Hate is the first line of defense, right?  Kill the enemy… America, 2019.

Just for the record, there is no evidence the iguanas have any connection with the deadly flesh-eating microbes that some people are picking up in Florida waters.  That is more closely related to warm water temps (uin a state that does not officially speak of climate change in official documents) and official trepidation about truly warning cash-spending visitors they could get sick and die from wading along the beach.  So how will the free market deal with this one?
