CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Several Cape Coral councilmembers say they are shocked by a message that they say has gone too far. At an April 29th council meeting, Cape resident Stephen Lovejoy stood at the podium and told councilmembers how he and his organization, Cap Cape Taxes, disagreed with a controversial utility tax. But it is a flyer that the group allegedly passed out that has some very concerned. The flyer, Lovejoy admits to creating and flashes boldly on the group's website, headlines with a "CALL TO ARMS" for all Cape Residents and businesses who disagree with the latest vote of their elected officials. Cape Coral councilmemebers  Kevin McGrail, Rana Erbrick and Lenny Nesta took exception to the message saying in a time when there have been mass shootings and gun violence against politicians like Gabrielle Giffords, a "Call to Arms" is not an appropriate form of protest. Stephen Lovejoy says the message was not meant as a threat to anyone.
