Democrats have been chipping away at our Second Amendment freedoms for several years.
But Republicans are pushing back against gun control at the state level.
And Ron DeSantis just promised to do one thing that the gun grabbers fear the most.
Ron DeSantis is by far the most-popular Governor in all of America.
DeSantis rose to fame over the past year-and-a-half due to his pro-freedom pandemic policies.
He kept Florida’s businesses and schools open, while also protecting freedom by banning mask and vaccine mandates in the Sunshine State.
DeSantis also fought back against the Biden administration’s open border policies, issuing an Executive Order prohibiting Florida agencies from assisting the administration in transporting illegal aliens and also signing a bill into law prohibiting “sanctuary cities” in Florida and requiring local governments to cooperate with Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) agents.
The Democrats already hated Ron DeSantis for his willingness to stand and fight for conservative values.
But the Left will be more determined than ever to take down DeSantis after the promise he just made to Second Amendment supporters in Florida.
During a recent press conference, a reporter asked DeSantis, “where are we on constitutional carry?”
“Put it on my desk and I will sign it!” DeSantis fired back.

Constitutional Carry is very simple.
If passed, it would simply allow law-abiding Floridians to carry a firearm for self-defense without having to add their name to a government database where they can be tracked and traced like a sex offender.
Right now, 21 states currently have Constitutional Carry laws on the books, with Texas being the latest state to pass such a law in 2021.
Republican Anthony Sabatini, who is the sponsor of Constitutional Carry in the Florida House of Representatives, explained the legislation in simple terms.
“Any legal firearm that a Floridian is able to purchase and have for their own self-defense, so you know, typical rifles, shotguns, pistols – should be able to carry those firearms without permission from the government,” Sabatini said.
Even though Sabatini has introduced Constitutional Carry every year since he was first elected in 2018, this is the best chance yet for the bill to pass the House and Senate and land on Governor DeSantis’ desk.
Of course, DeSantis supporting a bill to fully restore the Second Amendment freedoms of Floridians won’t earn him any friends or allies on the Left or with establishment RINOs.
But it will certainly increase his status among Republican voters nationwide.
