Recently, Democrat state lawmakers had submitted enough letters to the Secretary of State to request a poll of state legislators be taken to call a special session for the purpose of debating a bill to enact the “no fly, no buy” law which would deny firearms to people on the federal terrorism watch list.
Fortunately, what amounted to exploiting a horrible tragedy for political gain, fell short of the three-fifths majority of the legislature needed to call a special session. We all should be concerned that the federal government would maintain a list of people they deem dangerous and strip away their 2nd amendment rights. Just like tea party groups were targeted by the IRS, the “no fly, no buy” legislation could be used to harass innocent citizens.
Instead of politicians grandstanding to take our guns away, the Florida legislature should be passing Campus Carry and Open Carry to allow citizens their right to defend themselves. Both of these measures failed last session after the House passed both of them only to be killed by Republican Judiciary Committee Chair Senator Miguel Diaz de la Portilla.
The anti-gun rights legislators are preparing right now for the 2017 Legislative Session with bills they will file to strip away our right to own and bear arms. They are banking on the notion that people are more accepting of gun control measures after recent acts of terrorism.
What they don’t seem to understand is that terrorists want us to be unarmed.
The Liberty First Network is ready for the fight, we will not accept any legislation that restricts our right to protect ourselves, we will NOT COMPROMISE and we will demand that legislators pass Campus Carry and Open Carry.
But we need YOU to help us in the fight.
We expect the next session to be busy for our lobbyists as we fight for your gun rights.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 to be prepared for the fights coming our way after the election is over in just a few short months.
We need your help to ensure that we can meet our goal and be in Tallahassee full time in the next session to continue to advocate for the people as your liberty lobbyists.
Can you help with a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more to get us to our goal?
Liberty needs a voice and we need you to help us continue to bring that voice to Tallahassee.
