Moms Demand Action Members Appear at Florida House Committee Hearing “So we can be on TV.”

This just keeps getting stranger and stranger. You have to love some of these and some of the Moms Demand Action answers.

This is an Article from the NRA-ILA:

DATE: December 8, 2017
TO: USF & NRA Member and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer
USF Executive Director
NRA Past President

This is the 3rd of a 3-Part Report of the Senate Judiciary Hearing 12/5/2017

PART # 3 ā€“ Trying to get on TV

Groups of ladies representing Bloomberg’s Mom Demand Action keep showing up in committee hearings when gun bills are going to be heard. Sometimes 20-30 show up. They wear red t-shirts with “Moms Demand Action” on them and always try to sit in a group behind the speaker’s podium where they can be captured on TV.

I wanted to know exactly why they came or thought they came! (I do not have permission to reveal my source)
1. Why are you ladies here? “So we can be on TV.”
2. Why don’t you ever get up to testify? “We’re not supposed to talk we’re just here for TV.”Ā 
3. Why do you want to be on TV? “Because we’re against guns.”
4. Why are you against guns? “Oh, I’m not against guns, I just came for my friend.”

You have to love it!Ā šŸ™‚

Those Who Submitted Appearance Cards Against Gun Owner Rights

There’s an old saying about judging people by the company they keep. This should raise some eyebrows. We are reporting this because you may also be a member of one or more of these organizations and you may not know that they are lobbying against Second Amendment rights.

For example: We know that lots of gun owners have children and are members of PTA ā€“ but you may not know that a person representing Florida PTA was in the committee hearing on 12/5/17 and turned 3 Appearance Cards to lobby against the pro-gun legislation.

AGAINST: Open Carry Protection ā€“ SB-148
Florida Carry, Inc. ā€“ Scott Whigham (not registered to lobby)
Florida Carry, Inc. ā€“ Eric Friday
Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action ā€“ Jamie Ito (not registered to lobby)
League of Women Voters ā€“ Patricia Brigham (not registered to lobby)
Florida NOW ā€“ Barbara DeVane

AGAINST: Courthouse Carry ā€“ SB-134
Equality Florida (LGBT rights) ā€“ Hanna Willard
Florida Carry, Inc. ā€“ Eric Friday
Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action ā€“ Jamie Ito (not registered to lobby)
League of Women Voters ā€“ Patricia Brigham (not registered to lobby)
Florida NOW ā€“ Barbara DeVane
Florida PTA ā€“ Angie Gallo (not registered to lobby)

AGAINST: Church Private Property Rights ā€“ SB-274
Florida PTA (not registered to lobby for PTA)
League of Women Voters ā€“ Patricia Brigham (not registered to lobby)
Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action ā€“ Kate Kile (not registered to lobby)
Florida NOW ā€“ Barbara Devane
Florida Pediatric Society ā€“ Doug Bell

The 2018 Florida Legislative Session begins January 9, 2018, and runs for 60 consecutive days. ANYTHING can happen until the gavel drops to end that session.

Stay tuned for more.
END STATEMENT FROM NRA-ILA

MY COMMENT. First, the statements from Moms Demand Action do not surprise me. Did we expect them to be knowledgeable about why they were sitting in Tallahassee in a room about firearms rights and Bills? Of course not.

And as if Florida Carry did not have enough problems –
And to add to the confusion, Executive Director of Florida Carry Sean Caranna said this prior to the hearings in a Facebook comment asking for Florida Carry’s stance on the Bills. –
Sean Caranna – “Florida Carry Opposes SB148, as drafted, because it uses vague language and creates a lifetime series of fines and criminal acts, rather than treating them as minor infractions. Open Carry should be legal. We support SB134 but oppose all of the filed the amendments.”

So if Florida Carry supports 134, why did Florida Carry’s Legal Advisor state they were against it? Or get up and testify as to what they did and did not support? And did Florida Carry support or not support SB 274, being able to carry a firearm on Church property if there is a private school on the property during the week. Very confusing.
