That was close, too close for comfort. Now, if I am not mistaken, all NRA-endorsed candidates for Executive positions won (we are using the NRA as guide to see who is pro-gun only) and that tells us Gun Rights is not a dead of an issue as they tried to sell, although they almost pulled it.
The one that amazed me the most that was even close was Agriculture Commissioner. The Democrat Nikki Fried basically ran on two thing: Screw with the Concealed Weapons Permit system and get pot legalized (which she could not do). That particular race got 163,112 votes less that the Governor’s and that tells me a bunch of people did not know what the Agriculture Commissioner does for guns in Florida.
And that leaves the Legislature which from what little I can gather, it has not changed and it is in the hands of RINO GOP. The Incoming Senate President Bill Galvano was funded by Bloomberg. The best we can hope is 2 years of inaction unless there is a way to have them come to Jesus and see reason.
Still the best example was the new Senator for Florida Rick Scott: He barely made it and I do believe he would not had that much problem if he had not folded like a Walmart $5.95 lawn chair with SB7026. And the worse part is that our schools are not safe and won’t be.
And by the way, David Hogg and March For Our Lives have been strangely silent on the Florida Results. No tweets of any kind that I saw.
Basically: The Parkland Kids, the alleged game changer for Gun Control across the Nation in this election, failed to convince its own state.
That has to hurt.
