The N.R.A. Lobbyist Behind Floridas Pro-Gun Policies

I saw where Emma Gonzalez posted this article on twitter:

"Hammer is the National Rifle Associationís Florida lobbyist. At seventy-eight years old, she is nearing four decades as the most influential gun lobbyist in the United States. Her policies have elevated Floridaís gun owners to a uniquely privileged status, and made the public carrying of firearms a fact of daily life in the state. Daley was referring to a law that Hammer worked to enact in 2011, during Governor Rick Scottís first year in office. The statute punishes local officials who attempt to establish gun regulations stricter than those imposed at the state level. Officials can be fined thousands of dollars and removed from office...."

1. This article is absolutely hair-raising. The NRA basically RUNS Florida state government.

This is a must-read, even if you think you already know about it.

Florida needs a blanket boycott.

2. I live in the Panhandle which is very red

Most of our tourist come from equally red areas. I don't know what it will take for them to see what is so obvious to us. They elected Scott knowing he was a crook.

3. MARION HAMMER, Fla. Gun Rights Advocate & NRA official since the 1970s.

Recently learned about the power and influence she's had for decades.
