Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did it again.
DeSantis found a new fight to pick that put Democrats on defense.
And Ron DeSantis made a big promise that had Democrats losing their minds.
Governor DeSantis already scored huge wins in this past legislative session signing the Parental Rights in Education Bill as well as stopping woke brainwashing and teaching Critical Race Theory.
Now Governor DeSantis is setting the table for the next round of victories.
Governor DeSantis announced support for the legislature taking up and passing Constitutional Carry that would eliminate the need for permits to exercise your Second Amendment rights.
DeSantis explained that the individual in charge of issuing concealed-carry permits was a gun grabber, so it didn’t make any sense to involve this individual in the process.
“You have a situation where the official in charge of these permits doesn’t support Second Amendment rights. So why would you want to sub-contract out your constitutional rights to a public official that rejects the very existence of those rights?” Governor DeSantis declared.
DeSantis could not give a timetable for when the legislature would pass Constitutional Carry but that it would get signed into law before DeSantis’ first term ends this year.
“The legislature will get it done,” DeSantis stated. “I can’t tell you if it’s going to be next week, six months, but I can tell you that before I am done as Governor, we will have a signature on that bill.”
Florida Agricultural Commissioner Nikki Fried – who is running in the Democrat primary to take on DeSantis in November – slammed the move and exposed herself as a massive gun grabber.
Fried called DeSantis’ support for Constitutional Carry “absurd political pandering from the governor of a state that has experienced some of the worst mass shootings in our country’s history and in a nation where we have the highest rates of gun violence in the world.”
“It’s an insult to the memories and families of every victim of gun violence,” Fried added. “We should be passing laws to prevent gun violence and working to fix our state’s affordable housing crisis, not creating chaos to score political points.”
Democrats like Fried’s knee jerk opposition to Floridians exercising their Second Amendment rights show why Florida is trending Republican and polls show why DeSantis is on track for a resounding win this fall.
