From Florida Carry
We’re tired of waiting. We’re tired of hearing empty promises and accepting compromises by politicians. We’re tired of donor money from the likes of Al Hoffman and Mike Fernandez, who benefit from gated communities and private security, standing in the way of the Constitution.
We’re tired of seeing constitutional and open carry bills dying in committee not by anti-gun Democrats’ actions, but by allegedly pro-constitution Republican inactions. In short, we’re tired of seeing the right to keep and bear arms in Florida relegated to a mere licensed privilege. It’s time to move on.
There simply is no valid reason for the citizens of Florida be deprived of exercising the right to keep and bear arms as a true right.
Only days ago, Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia publicly endorsed constitutional carry. Governor DeSantis stated he would sign a constitutional carry bill. The Alabama Legislature is considering a similar bill.
Forty-six states permit open carry of firearms, and twenty-one states enjoy constitutional carry.
No state that has adopted constitutional carry has either rescinded or regretted that legislation.
Senator Simpson can easily prove his “unwavering support” for the Second Amendment. Tell him that Floridians want constitutional carry now! No more delays, no more excuses, no more doubletalk.
As Senate President, Simpson does not have to wait on a bill to get to the Senate floor. He has the power and authority as Senate President to direct the any Committee Chairman to file a committee bill.
We urge Simpson to facilitate the end of ongoing denial of our Constitutionally protected rights.
If you believe a license requirement to exercise a fundamental, enumerated right incorporated against the states under the Fourteenth Amendment due process clause is constitutionally repugnant, and agree with SCOTUS Justice Thomas that the Second Amendment is a “disfavored right”, please take the time to send your message to Senate President Simpson to get it done.
