Florida-(Ammoland.com)- SB-646 Open Carry and SB-616 Courthouse Carry by Sen. Greg Steube were both scheduled to be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, March 7, 2017, between 4:00-6:00pm.

However, when SB-616, the first of the two bills came up, committee member Sen. Anitere Flores conducted questioning of the Chairman and bill sponsor, Greg Steube, and then made her anti-gun statement declaring her intentions regarding pro-gun bills.

That bill subsequently passed 5-4 and the other 3 other progun bills on the committee agenda were temporarily passed over and not brought to a vote.

Many in the media are now suggesting that all pro-gun bill are now dead for the year.

My phone and email have been blowing up with questions and we hope the following helps you understand where we are.

Not wishing to leave you with our view of what Sen. Flores said, below is a link to her antigun statement. Below that is a “victory” photo of her with the Florida leader of Bloomberg’s “Moms Demand Action.”

Here’s the link to what many are calling the Flores “State of the Senate” speech in Judiciary Committee yesterday. The link to the photo Michelle Gajda, the Florida leader of Bloomberg’s “Moms Demand Action” anti-gun group posted this after the hearing

A reporter questioned me about what happen and these are my responses:

“I cannot tell you why Sen. Flores suddenly turned on law-abiding gun owners because I do not know. (Until yesterday she had a 100% rating with NRA and USF)

I cannot tell you if Sen. Flores was acting on her own behalf or on behalf of the Senate President or Senate Leadership because I do not know.

I cannot tell you whether or not she has the power to kill all pro-gun bills and not allow the Senate to vote on them because I do not know. But — as the old saying goes — “it ain’t over ’till it’s over,” and this is only Day 2 of the 2017 Legislative session.

And finally, am I giving up for this session? ABSOLUTELY NOT. I represent law-abiding gun owners statewide and they depend on me to fight for them and I will.”

Her boss, Senate President Joe Negron, can overrule her and take the bills straight to the Senate floor. Will he? Or is he a traitor, too? Time will tell if the FIX is in! It sure looks like it.

My belief is that Gov. Scott doesn’t want those bills on his desk, and Senator Negron is doing the Governor’s bidding.

Political games designed to continue to rob us of our rights.


Run, Anitere, run! You cannot hide.

This will be her last term. I wonder if she was a sellout.

Subversive, neo-communist, socialist……


Bloomberg needs go away and stay out of our state and take his moms against fund with him


These idiots need to look into facts.
Cities that have gun laws against gun carry have a higher crime rate then cities that require people to have guns…
A criminal can always get a gun on the black market and this is what they need to focus on, not those us is that obey the laws in order to carry.

Tenebris Vi

We WILL find out how, and by whom, she was bribed, and we WILL remove her from office!


Actually she referred to us as a basket of deplorables. A name which we were happy to embrace and throw back at her


Another “liberated” woman screwing with our rights!!!! I hope the people that voted for this idiot are now regretting it.


Must’ve cut her so called political teeth in california! Or kommiefornia!


Sounds like she spent time in new jersey or one of those states as well. Just look at some of the anti gun stuff coming out of new york, some of that is even worse than Cali.
