The clock is ticking for the 2018 session of the Florida Legislature and SB 7026, a bill that the NRA wants deader than dinosaurs.
Now comes the weekend and suddenly we are only 5 day away till the Senate and the House close their doors for the legislative year.
I have been checking the calendar for today and I don’t see SB 7026 up for discussion today (cross thy fingers) or even Monday or Tuesday. That does not mean it won’t be introduced, but I want to be optimistic just a tad and say we won’t see movement till Monday.
So, with the time short, why are the Democrat piling amendments to the bill? As far as I know, each has to be read, explained, voted on and approved or rejected. That takes time, a lot of time and it is irritating since they are repeating the same items over and over.
As of this moment (10:05 AM EST) there are 85 amendments attached to the bill.
Are the Florida Democrats looking to kill the bill? It appears so and I don’t think we would be sad about it. About the only good part of the bill being arming volunteer teachers is hated by Governor Scott, so basically there is nothing left for anybody, at least anybody interested in the Bill of Rights.
This could prove to be interesting.
