Take Action!

Time to take action to protect our gun rights in Florida


After the tragic Parkland High School shooting on February 14th, 2018 and with just three weeks left of the 2018 legislative session, Republican leadership felt the pressure to “do something” and passed SB 7026, which included raising the minimum age to buy a long gun from 18 to 21, added a three day waiting period, outlawed certain accessories like bump stocks and created a Red Flag Law (Risk Protection Order). Now Republican leadership in Tallahassee is considering another round of gun control legislation for the 2020 Legislative session.
 

In a recent interview with the Herald Tribune, Florida Senate President Bill Galvano said he plans to have a robust debate on gun violence, one that will include the possibility of new gun restrictions such as increased background checks and expanding Florida’s red flag law.


Will we have a repeat of the 2018 Republican gun control legislation? More restrictions on our gun rights will not stop bad people from committing evil acts, it will only lead to harassment of law-abiding citizens.


Right now, politicians in Tallahassee are listening to the liberal media and liberal polling results, if we do not want to see further deterioration of our gun rights, we had better speak up now, before it is too late.
