Florida: Bloomberg Groups Falsely Claim Credit For "Defeating" 2nd Amendment Bills

Florida: Bloomberg Groups Falsely Claim Credit For "Defeating" Second Amendment Bills

DATE: May 10, 2017
TO: USF & NRA Members and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer
USF Executive Director
NRA Past President



In a celebratory email blast yesterday, NY Mayor Bloomberg's anti-gun groups, Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety falsely took credit for "defeating" pro-gun bills in Florida.

They said:

"After months of heated debate in Tallahassee, we're closing out the 2017 legislative session with BIG wins for gun safety in Florida:

* Open carry: DEFEATED
* Guns on campus: DEFEATED
* Guns at airports: DEFEATED
* Guns in elementary, middle, and high schools: DEFEATED"
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In reality, none of those bills were defeated. No pro-gun bills were defeated by a vote of any committee or on either floor of the Legislature. Some just didn't get heard in committees or on the Senate or House floor. In short they just didn't make it all the way through the process.

However, if it's OK to take credit for defeating bills you oppose, simply because they didn't get heard in Committees, then we should take credit for defeating the following bills that were filed by anti-gun Democrats:

* Universal Background Checks DEFEATED
* Let Doctors to Ask About Gun Ownership DEFEATED
* High Capacity Magazine Possession DEFEATED
* "Assault Weapons" Ban DEFEATED
* Permit for Possession of Assault Weapon or Hi-Cap Magazine DEFEATED
* Penalties for Possession of Assault Weapon with 10 Round Mag DEFEATED
* No Guns in Theaters DEFEATED
* 3-Day Waiting Period/Private Sales DEFEATED
* Gun Owner Guilty if Gun is Stolen by Minor DEFEATED
* Gun Owner Guilty for Access/Discharge by Minors DEFEATED
* More Penalties for Guns in Certain Places DEFEATED
* Confiscation of Firearms DEFEATED
* Mental Health Check of CW Licensees DEFEATED
* Doctors May Keep Records of Gun Owners DEFEATED
* Database of Gun Owners who use Self-defense DEFEATED
* FDLE May Delay Background Checks/No Explanation DEFEATED

Regardless of who defeated what, we'd say it was a great session for protecting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. And the "victories" claimed by Bloomberg's anti-gun groups will be short lived because bills to restore Second Amendment rights to law-abiding people will be back ... until they pass. COUNT ON IT!

Negron put them on that committee and he is from east central Florida. He also could have sent them straight to the floor but didn't. The senate as a whole made him senate president. Thus the whole state is to blame.

South Florida makes up 11-12 of the 40 districts. Probably at least half of those districts go to democrats and thus won't hold sway with the GOP and are the result of conservative voters. The Miami rinos wouldn't have meant s';t of the rest of the state didn't give them the power.

Do you really think it's a coincidence that there is a blocker on the judiciary committee every single year?
