Gun legislation in Florida is running out of time.
There are 18 days left in the 2017 Florida legislative session and there are well over a dozen pro-gun bills that have been proposed in the House of Representatives and in the Senate. Unfortunately, the Senate has made almost zero progress on most of these pro-gun bills and the House has spent most of it's time waiting on the Senate to send them their passed bills.
The result is that once again, Florida will be nearly stagnant on legislation that affects law abiding gun owners. We pride ourselves on being a very gun friendly state but we can't even pass some simple, common sense, gun Liberty legislation without a major knife fight with what is supposed to the friendly party members (Miguel Diaz de La Portilla and Anitere Flores, specifically).
If a state becomes stagnant and fails to move forward on gun liberties, eventually it will start moving backwards. Have any of you contacted any of the Florida Senators? We are nearly out of time this year, and next year is an election year, which basically means that only minor gun related bills will have any chance to see a committee meeting. We've got to move the ball forward in anticipation of an anti-Liberty backlash in 2018 and 2019.
