Who supports our Second Amendment rights?
Republican US Senator Marco Rubio voted against background checks at gun shows and private sales by individuals. He was able to get 57 senators to vote for his amendment for a National Right-to-Carry for holders of concealed carry permits. However he needed 60 votes for the bill to be sent to the President. (This is why it's so important to vote for defenders of the Constitution.)
Republican Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam has worked to protect Second Amendment rights for Floridians and improve the processes for those eligible to obtain or renew concealed carry permits. He expanded services at regional offices so licensees can file their renewals in person and applicants can pay with a credit card, and worked with the Legislature to reduce fees to apply. He also expanded hunting opportunities on public lands and established Operation Outdoor Freedom, a program that invites wounded veterans to hunt in Florida State forests.
Our Republican majority Florida Legislature adopted a revision to our concealed carry permit statute to allow our military men and women ages 18, 19, and 20 to obtain a concealed carry permit.
Who wants to take away our Second Amendment rights?
Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL) voted agains the National Right-to-Carry Bill that was passed in the US House of Representatives.
Democratic Senator Bill Nelson (FL) voted agains the National Right-to-Carry Bill in the US Senate.
Democratic Governor Lawton Chiles vetoed the first Reciprocity Bill, so your Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) permit would only be good in Florida. Republican Governor Jeb Bush took office and immediately signed a Reciprocity Bill into law. Thanks to Republicans, Florida's CCW is good in 33 states.
