Lehigh Acres, FL -(AmmoLand.com)- In what appears to be a freedom hating tantrum, a few Florida House Democrats have filed at least 20 amendments in an attempt to kill pro-carry and bipartisan bills by Reps. Gaetz, Steube, and Rehwinkel Vasilinda when the bills are brought to the floor of the House tomorrow.

HB-163 Open Carry by Rep. Gaetz (R)
HB-4001 Campus Carry by Reps. Steube (R) and Rehwinkel Vasilinda (D)

Also on the floor tomorrow is:

HB-135 Easing Mandatory 20-Year Prison Sentences by Reps. Combee (R), Edwards (D)

Representatives Moscowitz, Murphy, and Geller have filed unfriendly amendments to include – prohibiting permanent U.S residents from getting a carry license (violating federal court rulings); prohibiting those on the no-fly list from getting a carry license (violating due process); prohibiting open carry with 500 feet of a number of locations including bars, polling places, any property owned by a church; and an amendment that would make you a felon if you own a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds.

It has been clear for months that Bloomberg style gun control efforts were underway in Florida – well, here it is! An unfriendly amendment has also been filed to Rep. Steube's Campus Carry bill, HB-4001.

These amendments will be up for a vote tomorrow, so we need you to contact legislators in the House NOW!!!
