As a concerned Florida citizen and voter, I'm writing today for your support and sponsorship of the Florida Second Amendment Preservation Act. The Federal Government seems determined to infringe upon the Constitutional rights of Florida gun owners both present and future.
• The right to keep and bear arms remains so jealously guarded that on September 10,2013, Colorado Senate President John Morse and state Sen. Angela Giron were recalled from office for their role in passing more restrictive State gun laws. It's critical that the State of Florida stand firm and protect these rights. Below is a link to the legislative template; the draft house bill is #45376.
To Governor Rick Scott, one of your campaign planks expresses the commitment to protect our right to keep and bear arms. Support of this bill is your chance to demonstrate this beyond rhetoric.
To my State legislators, I ask that you sponsor this bill now for the next legislative session.
To Attorney General Pam Bondi, my county Sheriff and Commissioners, Your public support for this bill is also important and very much needed.
• It is a tool for declaring Florida’s right to limit federal overreach in restricting 2nd Amendment liberty by non-compliance with all Federal laws or executive orders that are unconstitutional.
To all of my elected officials, it is one thing to say “I support the Second Amendment,” it is another to step up and actually protect and preserve it. I am asking all of you to take that next step.
I look forward to your response and support.
