Florida Alert! Fraudulent Titles on Gun Control Bills in Florida

Deception and fraud is alive and well among Democrats in the Florida Senate.

At least one anti-gun Senator is blatantly engaging in out-right fraud by filing a massive unconstitutional gun control bill with a fake title.

It doesn't get much more brazen and deceitful than what Florida Senator Linda Stewart (D) just did. She filed a gun control bill titled "GUN SAFETY" but it is really a bill to ban "Assault Weapons and Magazines".

SB-1464 - Gun Safety - 2021 by Sen. Linda Stewart (D) has a fraudulent title attempting to hide the real intent.

Even two of most anti-gun Florida legislators (including the Senate Minority Leader) had enough integrity to title their bills with titles that correctly signal the intent. Both also filed bills to ban "Assault Weapons and Magazines."

SB-370 - Assault Weapons and Large-capacity Magazines by Minority Leader, Sen. Gary Farmer (D) and

HB-653 - Assault Weapons and Large-capacity Magazines by Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith (D)

So far, these and numerous other unconstitutional gun control bills have gotten no traction in the Senate. With new leadership in the Senate we believe that the new Senate President and his leadership team have respect for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the rights of law-abiding, gun owning citizens. Further, we can't image that Senate President Simpson would put up with such fraud on the part of anti-gun Democrats.

You can bet the Florida Supreme Court would not tolerate a deceptive title on a ballot petition amendment that deceives the people, nor do we believe that members of the Florida Senate will tolerate it either.
