TAKE ACTION ! Ask Your Lawmakers to Oppose New Gun Control

Uncategorized

Even as the nation was grieving the terrible loss of life in Parkland, Fla., gun control activists were doing what they do best: exploiting tragedy to advance their political agenda.  Gun control activists are pushing a message that you are to blame for the criminal violence that took place last week.  They’re attempting to capitalize on this tragedy to convince members of Congress and your state lawmakers to vote for their gun control wish list.

Proposals to ban the most popular rifles in America, arbitrarily limit magazine capacity, require a waiting period on all firearm sales, and restrict the right of law-abiding young adults to acquire rifles and shotguns have been suggested as “solutions” by those who wish to curtail the rights of law-abiding gun owners.  Legislation encompassing these proposals could be voted on in the U.S. Congress or even your state legislature in the coming weeks.

That’s why it’s imperative that you contact your lawmakers today and ask them to oppose all gun control schemes that would only impact law-abiding gun owners. 

 

COPY AND PASTE COMPOSITE LETTER

 

As a constituent, I am writing to express my strong opposition to any new gun control that would only impact law-abiding gun owners.  Punishing law-abiding gun owners for the acts of criminals is flat out wrong and won’t solve any of the mental health and behavioral problems that we desperately need to do something about.  Please stand strong in support of the Second Amendment and oppose all gun control schemes such as waiting periods, age restrictions to purchase firearms, gun bans, ammunition bans, bans on magazines, and other senseless legislation that would not have stopped this horrific event and won’t stop the next one.

Doing nothing is not an option, but doing something that won’t fix the problem and blames law-abiding gun owners shouldn’t be an option either.  Please support and focus on legislation to protect our schools and our school communities, as well as fix our broken mental health system.

I look forward to your response and will consider your votes on these important issues the next time I vote at the polls.  Thank you.

VOTE NO ! ON H.R 5087 “Assault Weapons” ban of 2018

Uncategorized

 

This is an example of why we often have limited trust in legislators. The title plays on emotion of the moment, trading on fear. PLEASE READ the proposed bill for yourself. Knowledge is power. This is not an attempt at an assault weapons ban, this is a semi automatic weapons ban and includes handguns, rifles and shotguns. Many of the same firearms everyday Americans currently own are on this list. We can never find common ground together when there is so much deceit and mistrust.

Please contact your legislators and tell them to VOTE NO on the Bill.

A 20-year-old Oregon man has accused Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods of age-discrimination for refusing to sell him a rifle.

Tyler Watson filed Oregon county court lawsuits against the retailers on Monday, six days after they announced they would not sell guns to buyers under 21.The companies added the higher age restriction after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Oregon law allows state residents to buy shotguns or rifles as of age 18. Federal law also allows people 18 and older to buy rifles or shotguns from licensed dealers.

Watson’s lawsuits may be the first of their kind in the U.S., his attorney, Max Whittington, told The Oregonian/Oregon Live, media outlets that first reported the cases.

NRA files Suit over Florida gun control Bill Signed by Gov Rick Scott

News | Politic

 

The National Rifle Association Filed a claim over firearm control enactment by Florida Gov. Rick Scott, saying it disregards the Second Amendment by raising the age to purchase firearms from 18 to 21.

The claim came hours after Gov. Scott, a Republican, signed the bill into law Friday evening.

Legal counselors for the NRA need a government judge to obstruct the new age confinement from taking effect.

The new enactment raises the base age to purchase rifles from 18 to 21, expands a three-day wait period for handgun buys to incorporate long weapons and bans bump stocks that enable firearms to emulate fully automatic fire. It likewise makes a supposed “watchman” program that empowers educators and other school representatives to carry handguns.

The new measures come in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting frenzy at Marjory Stone man Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that slaughtered 17 individuals.

Florida Gov Rick Scott Defies NRA Signs New Gun Regulation Bill

Uncategorized

 

Florida Gov. Rick Scott endorsed Senate Bill 7026 into law Friday, the principal firearm control enactment established in the state after the Parkland school slaughter on February 14.

The law, known as the Marjory Stone man Douglas High School Public Safety Act, fixes weapon control in a few ways yet in addition enables a few school teachers to be Armed.

Scott, Surrounded by the families of those effected by the tragedy, described the impact the tragedy has had on his state and the repercussions of the Valentine’s Day massacre at Marjory Stone man Douglas in Parkland, in 2016 the shootings at Pulse dance club in Orlando and Fort Lauder dale Airport.

“The hardest thing I’ve ever needed to do as senator is to begin to discover the words to comfort a parent who has lost their kid,” Scott said. “There are only no words.”

One arrangement of the law raises the base age to buy a gun to 18 to 21.

Scott received the $400 million bill Thursday following days of impassioned, often contentious debate in the majority-Republican House and Senate. He praised the Legislature, contrasting its quick action with what he called the inefficiency of the federal government in Washington.
A controversial part of the new law is known as the Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program, which arms some teachers if both the local school district and local sheriff’s department agree. The $67 million provision is named after the coach who shielded students with his own body and died in last month’s shooting.

Florida Law Makers Approve Bill Allowing Teachers To Carry Guns…

News | Politic

 

 

Florida lawmakers shot down an amendment on Monday that would have banned semi-automatic “assault” weapons like the AR-15 used in the Parkland school massacre.

They did, however, agree to raise the legal age for purchasing a firearm to 21 — and approved legislation that would give teachers the right to carry guns in school, NBC-2 reports.

The amendments were introduced as part of a packaged set of bills being offered up following Nikolas Cruz’ alleged shooting spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Florida’s Senate Rules Committee spent more than two hours debating the gun-control issues before eventually casting their votes, according to NBC.

Senators also agreed to confiscate guns from people with mental health issues, in addition to raising the legal buying age and giving teachers the right to carry.

A similar packaged set of reforms is scheduled to be taken up by the House Rules Committee on Tuesday.

The meetings come as more and more people continue to show their support for stricter gun-control laws, many of whom own weapons themselves.

Hundreds of activists and students turned out in Tallahassee last week — including survivors of the Parkland massacre — to call on lawmakers to act.

Many gathered at the Capitol on Monday to show their support for the assault weapons amendment, which was rejected by a 7-6 vote.

“Shame, shame, shame!” some of the activists shouted, according to News 13.

The fact that teachers could soon be allowed to carry firearms inside schools wasn’t sitting well with gun-control supporters, either.

“It bothers me to think as a father of two young boys to tell them to not be aggressive to your teacher,” said Sen. Oscar Branynon (D-Miami Gardens).

The lawmaker told the Sun Sentinel that he and other black fathers across Florida will now have to include teachers when talking to their children about how to act around armed authority figures.

“Please don’t make it dangerous for children who look like my children to go to school,” he said.

The Senate’s proposed legislation is slated to go through its second and final committee on Tuesday before being voted on later in the week.

If passed, the bills will have to be signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott.
