John Hallman Legislative Report

October 17 2019

This week in Tallahassee

On Tuesday Royal Brown from the Winter Haven 9-12 and myself met with members of the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee in Tallahassee. We had productive meetings with Representatives Alex Andrade, Juan Fernandez-Barquin and Anthony Sabatini. Royal and I left these meetings with strong commitments by them to oppose any gun control measures.
We also met with Senator Travis Hutson’s staff as part of reaching out to the members of the Senate Infrastructure and Security Committee.
I will continue to schedule meetings with House Criminal Justice Subcommittee meeting members as well as members of the Senate Infrastructure and Security Committee for next week in Tallahassee.

Grassroots effort is working

Your phone calls and e-mails to the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee are working. One Legislative Aide told us that they were receiving a lot of e-mails and phone calls to support and co-sponsor HB 6001 and HB 6003 as well as opposing gun control schemes.
We now have three good gun-rights legislation filed in the Florida Legislature
Representative Anthony Sabatini files “Constitutional Carry” bill and we now have three good gun bills filed in the Florida Legislature:

HB 273 by Representative Anthony Sabatini

This bill often referred to as “Constitutional Carry” removes the requirement that license to carry a concealed firearm is required in order to carry such a firearm. This would enable Florida citizens to carry a gun, open or concealed, without a permit. 30 States do not require any license to carry unconcealed and 15 states allow carry licensees/permit holders to choose to carry openly or concealed at their discretion.

The Florida Senate will vote next week to reinstate disgraced Broward Sheriff Scott Israel.

Don’t forget that next week the Florida Senate will convene a Special Session to vote to reinstate disgraced Broward Sheriff Scott Israel. Sheriff Israel demonstrably failed the students and teachers at Marjorie Stoneham Douglass High School. During the Parkland shooting deputies failed to confront Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooter Nikolas Cruz. Deputies lacked proper training to handle mass shooters and in the worst instance, multiple BSO deputies, including school resource officer Scot Peterson, failed to confront Cruz at all. Make sure and call your state Senator and tell them to vote NO on reinstating Scott Israel.

We can win

I would like to thank Royal Brown for helping me with legislative meetings in Tallahassee, he did a great job. Glynnda White was also in Tallahassee lobbying for important educational issues. Let me know If anyone else would like to make a trip to Tallahassee, I always appreciate having another voice with me when I meet legislators.
Your efforts are working, but we need to keep up the pressure. Republican Legislators are still too worried by liberal polls, and Senate President Bill Galvano announced “more background checks and expanding the Red Flag law is on the table”.
We need to make sure they are worried about losing our support and votes. I will be sending you a new call to action in the next few days.
In Liberty,
John Hallman
