FIFY, perhaps?I'm glad he took this stance but he has not done anything for gun owners .
Yeah, I wish, one day soon, I could have a nice chat with him and explain to him what matters to FL gun owners. I suspect he believes it's "Constitutional Carry," when it really isn't. And I understand why he might think that, as those "Florida Fisherman" seem to be the most vocal about Const. Carry in the state at present. That might be why it's getting him stuck.
If Gov. DeSantis really wants to help 2A in FL and FL gun owners, he can do these 4 simple things (my "Fab four" in order of most important on down):
1) Eliminate/Repeal ERPO laws (Red Flag laws). They are unconstitutional IMHO, violating the 4th, and the "due process" clauses of the 5th and 14th amendments. Sorry, but an "ex parte" hearing where the defense is not present or allowed to defend their client is not "due process," IMHO. ERPOs are also fraught with a ton of abuse by anti-gun forces.
2) Eliminate/Make Illegal - "Civil Asset Forfeiture." Again, a violation of the 5th and 14th amendments' "Due Process" clauses. I'm not against "asset forfeiture," but it should occur only after a proper and summary adjudication of guilt, after a proper trial, as part of a properly imposed sentence.
3) Clarify and make rock solid, the definition of "Improper display of a concealed weapon" (i.e. 'Brandishing') such that there is no room for "interpretation/discretion" by LE. Accidental displays should, simply, not count, and no citizen should be harrassed by LE as a result of one. If a person draws, waives it in the air in a threatening manner, or deliberately moves/adjusts their clothing to expose it to someone else (ie."Watch out sucker... look what I got..."), that does count.
4) Work with some of our neighboring states to form a "Pro 2A" sanctuary compact to fight any possible Federal Anti-gun legislation.
That's what he needs to do.
