Yesterday a few dozen people gathered on the steps of the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee in support of gun rights and constitutional carry in the Sunshine State.
“It’s time that we actually start fighting and expanding our robust Bill of Rights in the United States,” [State Rep. Anthony] Sabatini said. “And the Second Amendment being, in my opinion, one of the most, if not the single most guaranteed right in the Bill of Rights.”
Sabatini called out his fellow Republicans, some by name, including House Speaker Chris Sprowls, for not doing enough for gun rights.
“We need them to change their tune to fix this travesty by passing constitutional carry, and also repealing the red flag laws here in the state of Florida,” he said.
Here’s GOA’s press release on the rally . . .
Gun Owners of America (GOA) and state Representative Anthony Sabatini (R) hosted a press conference today at the Florida State Capitol. They were joined by dozens of gun owners, united to send one message: the Florida legislature must pass Constitutional Carry legislation.
GOA’s Florida Director, Luis Valdes, said “Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried exemplifies the issues with our permit system of being treated guilty until proven innocent, instead of innocent until proven guilty.”
Senior Vice President for GOA, Erich Pratt, asked, “What’s the best reason this Republican-led legislature should pass Constitutional Carry? Because it’s in the Constitution. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed!”
Rep. Anthony Sabatini also concluded, “Floridians should be able to exercise their Second Amendment right without a permission slip from the government. Bearing arms is a fundamental constitutional right… I’m looking forward to … getting this bill passed!”
