First of all, an apology and an announcement for my non-Floridian readers: Whenever you see the header above you will know it is a Florida Legislation-specific post. That way, you can save your time and check other posts. I do urge you to give them at least a read so you know what may be coming down your state in  the future.

And to Floridians:  We are in deep crap if any of the Gun Control bills posted now in the Legislature gets passed.  If the Democrats get their wish list, Florida will make New Jersey look like they have no Gun Control laws.

I am double checking the list of Florida Senators and Representatives with their respective emails. Later today I will check the committees to see if there are any new names or people got swapped and then I will post them for your use.

After that, I will post any and all Gun Bills and Self Defense bills up for consideration.  I will make my own IANAL analysis and what I think we can expect if passed.

And as always, please comment, correct and let me know your opinion. What I will not accept is the lazy and irresponsible idea of “Hey, both the House and the Senate are firmly in the hands of Republicans, we have nothing to worry about.”  And that is true which does not explain how come Florida has now Red Flag laws, gun buying age of 21 and not a single Pro Gun Bill has made it to the Governor’s desk in the last two years.  It is time to light a fire in our Rep and Senator’s ass even if they are Democrats. The Dems need to hear that there is a firm opposition to the bills they sponsor/support, if anything to knock some wind out of their sails. They may support a Gun  Control Bill and oppose a Pro Gun bill,  but maybe they won’t commit to it as hard as when they thought their position was uncontested. We cannot afford to assume our efforts will be wasted and we are better off doing nothing. Not this year. Not ever.

And you are going to be your own Gun Rights organization, specially if you spent time bitching about them in the past. Do not sit there and think a group will do the work for you: get your ass in gear and stay in the loop, send emails, call your legislators, stick it to the Media, be politely contrary and don’t let a lie go unchallenged. You cannot subcontract your Gun Rights Fight  for $25 to $35 a year, expect you have to do nothing but bitch when things do not go your way.

And how long do we have? Look down

You can be sure of one thing: Our enemies are already hard at work. We are still nursing hangovers and acid indigestion. We are way behind the ball.

Time to step up.

Spread the love

  1. Hey Miguel,

    I am one state up from you. I have an additional thought. Write or type(hey, I am old school here) a letter to the same representative. A plain old letter carries more weight than email. I remembered a formula. 1 email equals 100 phone calls, and Ietter equals 100 emails. Make it one page, facts only, be polite and don’t mention the word “dumbass” once. Lol. Perhaps you can expound on this. Just a thought

    Respectfully

    Bob

  2. Welcome to the party. These are the same bills that are introduced by Democrats every year. Sooner or later, they hope to be successful. We have to be lucky every year. They only need to be lucky once.
