My apologies for the quality of video. I can’t figure out how to download it and the site did not allow for embedding. It is not the totality of the statement but truthfully you don’t need more.
The bill he is arguing against is HB-39:
Removes statement of applicability relating to certain violations of carrying concealed weapon or firearm; reduces penalties applicable to person licensed to carry concealed weapon or firearm for first or second violation of specified provisions relating to openly carrying weapons; provides that person licensed to carry concealed weapon or firearm does not violate certain provisions if firearm is temporarily & openly displayed.
Basically, if you accidentally and temporarily expose your concealed gun and some simpleton asshole calls the cops, you get a first fine of $25 for the first offense, $500 for the second and only you get applied the misdemeanor at the third time.
Moms Demand and the rest have tried (unsuccessfully) to make it appear as if this is some sort of Open Carry For rent scheme. But the testimony of Rick Soskis is brutally bizarre. From stating that he has had a Florida CWP for thirty years but has not carried for 29 1/2 (why would you do that?) to ask to be nice and open-minded and immediately crap down on 1.8 million Floridians with permits by calling them paranoid.
If I was suspicious man (and I am) I would almost bet that he copied the best rants of Saint Joan Peterson’s blog. He does sound like a True Believer who would have no problem to see your life ended if you favor the Second Amendment.
Of course, he gets to keep hiss CWP and his guns, because what other reason would you have a permit, right? It is not hypocrisy folks, at least not in their minds because they are your betters.
