NRA Files Lawsuit Saying Florida Gun Bill Approved by Gov. Scott Violates 2nd Amendment

Does anyone remember when Rick Scott first ran for governor of Florida in 2010? He had a lot of opposition, not only from the Democrats, but also from the establishment Republicans. There was a lot of controversy about his prior position as chief executive of Columbia/HCA,  over the company’s business and Medicare billing practices. Nevertheless Scott was elected governor in large part due to the tireless efforts of grassroots patriots, including tea party activists like you and me. Well, I guess I have to ask that time-old question: “How’s that working out for you now?” – ADB

The National Rifle Association reacted Friday with a federal lawsuit after Florida lawmakers approved gun legislation that would raise the age to buy guns. The group’s argument: that the proposed law violates the Second Amendment.

News of the lawsuit came just hours after Florida Gov. Rick Scott publicly went against allies in the NRA in signing a gun control bill that was drafted in response to the fatal school shooting in Parkland, Fla., on Feb. 14. Seventeen people were killed in that gun attack, attributed to a 19-year-old named Nokolas Cruz.

Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Acton, has matainted that the bill “punished punishes law-abiding gun owners for the criminal acts of a deranged individual.”

The lawsuit is asking a federal judge to block the new age restriction from taking effect. Read the rest of this article at foxnews.com.

    I doubt the courts will side with the NRA, but in reality, ALL gun control laws, current and proposed, violate the Second Amendment. What part of “shall NOT be infringed” isn’t clear to anyone? It doesn’t say, “can be infringed due to public outcry” or “can be infringed as various governments see fit.” Just sayin’……….

    Flash, you are absolutely correct. The reason why those kids and others died in Parkland is because “The Cowardly Lyin'” Sheriff Israel and his band of candyasses DID NOT DO THEIR JOBS. I believe Governor “Baldy” started out his administration by giving a billion dollars of our tax dollars to the Florida teacher’s unions. Baldy is a Broward County Republicrat through and through. Yeah, let’s punish 99.999% of the populace that handles guns responsibly because the GOVERNMENT DID NOT DO ITS JOB.
