Posted on 03/29/2014 7:57:55 PM PDT by shove_it
Below is a link to a youtube video of some of the Testimony before the Florida House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, March 17, 2014. It shows the Florida Sheriffs Association OPEN OPPOSITION to your right to carry your firearms with you during a mandatory evacuation under a declared state of emergency.
Further, despite words of the Founding Fathers in the Second Amendment, it is their opinion that you only have a "right" to own firearms and not a "right" to bear firearms.
Under the video screen you will see heading that says, "Published on Mar 28, 2014" and a short narrative. At the bottom of the narrative there is an option that says "Show more." Be sure to click on that "Show more" option to read the rest of the narrative.
The bill is HB-209 Firearms During Mandatory Evacuations by Representative Heather Fitzenhagen and others. Click Here to Read the Bill. The final vote on the bill by the House Judiciary Committee was 17-1. Committee members, ALL 12 Republicans and 5 of 6 Democrats stood up for YOUR rights.

NVA: do you know how Sheriff Ivey voted on this?
If the Florida Sheriffs Association can assure me that criminals don’t have guns, I may be willing to listen. Otherwise, I really don’t care to hear what they have to say.
Here’s a live link to the video:
Looks like the FL House is with you and me on that one.
When it comes down to it, the police will do what their masters tell them too...... If they want to keep their pensions and healthcare.
Nope, but I’d be surprised if he supported it.
That’s the problem with almost all of law enforcement.
This is B.S. The Sheriff’s Department wants people disarmed in an evacuation where they are most vulnerable. Do your job and leave law-abiding citizens alone!
You just hit on the problem. There’s a state of emergency and a mass evacuation. I don’t want to be the only person out there without a gun.
Florida is scared of the “wrong colored citizens” having guns, just like in CT.
In CT you MUST go to only one building in the entire state to spend $116 with four separate checks to APPLY to get a certificate to buy a long gun. The poor are overwhelmingly the “wrong color in CT” and the politicians knew that they don’t have transportation to get to Middletown, CT nor the spare $116.
Now you know why the CT gun law was passed. FL soon to follow.
Like damn near ALL gub mint employees,
just sitting around watching the retirement clock.
Awful kind of them to make their opinions known.......in an election year.
Write all of their names down.
Put their names and constitutional violations on stickers.
Place stickers all over their counties.
Make them famous!
After Katrina, we had some Florida Troopers in the area to help keep things real. I was putting up a sign at the end of the road to warn potential looters that we were an armed community...I had my .357 strapped on when a Florida Trooper came by. He looked at the sign, glanced at me, then touched the brim of his hat and drove off. Sheriffs can be useful or detrimental but their positions are often political enough to give one doubts about their loyalties - Mike Byrd in our area of MS demonstrates that you never know...
At the time I saw all that equality ballyhoo was meant for southern folks, not the ones up north.
Seven years after our schools were forcibly integrated, they were still burning buses in Boston in an effort to prevent their children from having to go across town and go to school with 'those people'.
Back in the 60’s we in the south didn’t even know we were discriminating ,until the government told us.
Oh no! We just sent them a nice donation too! Won’t happen again though....
We remained friends even through the race riots in High School.
That trooper must have come from somewhere north of South Florida.
