Upcoming Florida Gun Bills That Effect Your Gun Rights

Jacksonville Fl – -(AmmoLand.com)- Critical days lie ahead for gun owners. The Obama Administration on the federal level and anti-gun legislators on the state level threaten our freedom, our liberty and our self-defense and firearms rights.

At the end of this message is a list of gun bills already filed for the upcoming legislative session here in Florida. We’re counting on your help, through financial support and activism, to help keep Florida gun rights safe.

Already, an anti-gun south Florida Democrat has filed a bill to diminish Florida’s Right-to-Carry law and yet another bill attempts to define “assault weapons” by placing a list of firearms and accessories into statutes — a scheme that anti-gunners have attempted for years.

We urge you to help us protect your cherished rights. We simply can’t do it without you. Please JOIN, RENEW your membership and/or send a contribution today.

I’m counting on you — as you have counted on me — to help save our Second Amendment rights. Use the links below to download and print the action form. Send it in today.

Thank you for your support.

Gun restriction laws are stupid by nature. If someone breaks into your home at night, by the time you get your keys from the bureau, run to the closet and unlock the trigger locks, you'll be unconcious if not dead.
