67 NRA approved Republican Florida state politicians just voted for gun control, basically blaming law abiding citizens for the deadly shooting in Parkland Florida last month.
Florida enacted its first gun control measures in more than two decades on Friday when Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act ― in open defiance of the National Rifle Association.
As the Trace reported, 67 members of the Florida House and Senate with “A” or “A-plus” ratings from the gun rights group voted for the bill.
If you count Scott, who earned an A-plus rating himself, that makes 68 NRA-approved politicians who chose to break with the group.
The NRA had come out strongly against the new regulations, which include raising the minimum age for all firearms purchases to 21, creating a three-day waiting period and banning the sale of bump stocks.
Marion Hammer, the NRA’s powerful Florida lobbyist and former president, called on gun rights supporters to flood Florida House Republicans’ inboxes with messages telling them to vote no after the state Senate passed the bill.
“YOU and every other law-abiding gun owner is being blamed for an atrocious act of premeditated murder,” she wrote.

After this latest mass shooting Republican politicians around the country seem almost eager to curtail the Second amendment rights of honest citizens.
Shortly we will have an opportunity to vote in primaries to choose our parties candidate for public office.
Any Republican that votes for gun control should be immediately voted out of office and replaced with a candidate that vows to uphold the Constitution.
