With one gun-t0ting Republican state legislator (Matt Gaetz) leaving Tallahassee for the “friendly” confines of the U.S. Congress, another Yosemite Sam Republican has taken the reigns as the top pro-gun advocate in the state legislature.Florida’s Speaker of the House, Richard Corcoran, is all too willing able to pick up where Gaetz left off, pushing for the elimination of “gun-free zones.”
After the shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International airport (gun free zone) on Jan 6, Democrats and others within the anti-gun lobby are pushing for more gun restrictions, while the Corcorans of the world make the case for why guns should be allowed in those so-called gun-free zones.
“If law-abiding citizens could carry a gun to a baggage claim…I think you’re going to see gun violence rapidly decline. So why don’t we do that for a change? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”- Speaker Richard Corcoran (R)-TB Times
With an open carry bill is up for discussion this legislative session, could we see Corcoran holster up in the days after session ends?
