Pretty much killed by a fellow Republican...


A bill to allow law-abiding citizens without concealed carry permits to bear arms during declared mandatory evacuations was effectively killed in the Florida Senate Thursday.

Its sponsor shelved the legislation after an amendment was attached to it that only granted powers to evacuees for a 24-hour period. The measure had previously endured an uphill fight to get through the House and a series of Senate committees.

“(The amendment) makes it a felony if you’re a minute late after the evacuation,” Florida Sen. Jeff Brandes (R-Petersburg), the bill’s sponsor, said Thursday. “It makes the bill anti-Second Amendment. It defeats the whole purpose.”

Marian Hammer the former NRA president who got CCW to Florida, made this comment on who stopped this bill.

“The Florida Sheriffs Association tried to kill HB-89 the so-called ‘warning shot’ bill but failed. They pulled out all the stops on the mandatory evacuation bill,” she said. “Make no mistake, the Florida Sheriffs Association has declared war on the Second Amendment.”

The Florida Sheriffs Association declared war on the Second Amendment or declared war on a mode of carry known as concealed carry?

Which one is it?
