Florida Urgent Action Needed Now: Sheriffs Trying to Gut Evacuation Bill
The following story is from the NRA-ILA.
Tuesday, 4/8/2014, Senate Bill 296 by Senator Jeff Brandes will be heard in the Senate Community Affairs Committee at 3:00 pm.
SB-296 Mandatory Evacuation is the Senate version of HB-209 that has been under constant attack by the Florida Sheriffs Association and continues to be under attack in the Senate.
Amendments have been filed for the Florida Sheriffs Association to literally gut the bill and usurp your right to bears arms when you need them most.
SB-296 Firearms/Mandatory Evacuations is a bill to allow law-abiding citizens to take their firearms with them when they are complying with a mandatory evacuation order under a declared state of emergency. This bill will keep law-abiding citizens from being arrested and having their firearms confiscated for taking their firearms with them when they evacuate.
The Florida Sheriffs Association, while proclaiming their support for the Second Amendment, continues to actively OPPOSE this legislation and your right to bear arms.
Watch the Florida Sheriffs Association tell a previous Committee that it is their opinion that you only have a “right” to own firearms and not a “right” to bear firearms.
THIS IS CRITICAL!!!! PLEASE ACT NOW!
