Florida Democrats Push For Special Session On Gun Control

posted on June 23, 2016

Last week, Nancy Smith of Sunshine State News asked, “Is anybody else as disgusted as I am, watching Democrats race to erect their political podiums in the blood of the Orlando nightclub victims?” Proving her point, Florida Democrats are now attempting to stampede the legislature into a vote on whether or not to call a special session for gun control. 

Democrat House member Dave Kerner is spearheading the effort to exploit the terrorist act and use it to push for more anti-gun legislation. So while memorial services and funerals continue for the 49 victims, Kerner is working frantically to persuade more than 32 members of the legislature to file letters with the secretary of state that ask him to force this poll. 

We join you in your disgust, Ms. Smith. And we call for action to reject this shameless exploitation designed to further a political agenda in the wake of tragedy.

USE YOUR POWER!

Contact members of the Florida House and Senate and urge them to say NO to a special session and more gun control, and NO to blaming you for the act of a terrorist! You can find a complete click-to-email list of lawmakers at the end of this NRA-ILA feature.
