FL Sheriff’s Assoc. names Senator who killed open carry, campus carry as 2016 legislator of the year – The Gun Writer


Tallahassee, Fla. (April 11, 2016) – Each year the Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA) recognizes several exemplary state legislators for their significant contributions to and support of good public safety policies during legislative session.  These legislators have demonstrated a commitment to protecting the best interests of Florida citizens through their diligent legislative efforts and support of FSA initiatives. This year, the Florida Sheriffs Association names Senator Miguel Diaz de la Portilla as the 2016 Legislator of the Year for his commitment to the safety of our citizens. His role in ensuring a common sense approach to conceal carry legislation exemplified what we expect of our elected officials and his unwavering support for reasonable solutions proposed by Florida’s sheriffs demonstrated his commitment to Florida’s citizens and visitors.

Apparently all those assurances that they were on the side of the Second Amendment and the Constitution were all bullshit.

And unless individual Sheriffs come out strongly and on the record denouncing this bonehead move by the association, we will consider that all Sheriffs from all counties approve by this.

  1. Fire every single one of them. They’re accountable only to the voter and no one else. They’re the highest law of the land in their county. If they won’t care for the Constitution with fidelity or TRUTH; can them.

  2. Miguel, de la Portilla is from your district, right? (I think I recall you saying that). Regardless, how do we get this guy primaried? How do we get him out of there? Because after doing it two years in a row, you can bet he’s going to do it again if any other gun rights bills get introduced up there.

    • He is about 2 districts down from mine. The problem is that as far as I know, there is no Republican challenger. He may be facing a Democrat, but that is unclear as of yet.

      • It’s too bad. This basically means gun rights are stalled in Florida. There will be no more advancements until he’s off his throne. I wouldn’t be surprised if they started whittling away at what we’ve got.

        It has been the case for other politicians that the only thing that gets their attention is getting primaried. Even big national names know they’re virtually guaranteed to win once they’re out of the primary process.
