This Democrat Caught Florida Republicans Holding A Public Meeting To Relax State Gun Laws Today

Miami-Dade’s Democratic Party Chairman just called out Florida Republicans as cowards for holding hearings today to make it even easier to get a concealed weapons permit after yesterday’s horrifying school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Chairman Juan Cuba caught GOP legislators planning a hearing for 1pm tomorrow in Tallahassee, Florida’s capitol, which includes a 98-page thick bill about agriculture (SB 740) which weakens the state’s gun laws considerably.

2. Thx. The "restriction" in this case pertained to conceal carry permits

And shortening/creating a deadline for approval regardless of completed background check, verification, etc.

90 days hits, must approve.

Under the guise of "Expedience" no doubt.

It is a felony under Florida law to create, maintain or publish any list, record or registry of legally owned firearms or law-abiding firearm owners.

5. So Putin's money going to the NRA is having an affect

Right after a mass murder due to excessive weapons and ammunition floating around, a legislative body is secretly trying to make more weapons and ammo available.

No one but Putin would find that to be a good thing.
