Florida Representative Will Kendrick (R) Tries to Defend Selling Out Gun Owners on HB 1417!

Friday, April 27, 2007

              Executive Director Unified Sportsmen of Florida

Below is a statement from Representative Will Kendrick (R) published in the April 25, 2007 issue of THE APALACHICOLA & CARRABELLE TIMES. 

Representative Will Kendrick attempts to defend his actions to help defeat HB 1417 in the House Environmental & Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday, April 18, 2007.  It is pure anti-gun rhetoric. HB 1417 protects your right to have a firearm in your private vehicle for lawful purposes when it is parked in a business parking lot.

Representative Kendrick was a co-sponsor of this legislation last year and told us he was going to co-sponsor HB 1417 this year, but he broke his word and did not have the courtesy to let us know he had switched sides.  Kowtowing to corporate giants instead of representing the citizens of his district.

Representative Kendrick NEVER expressed a concern with the bill nor did he ask us to change one word in its numerous provisions.  Instead, he deliberately blindsided the National Rifle Association and Unified Sportsmen of Florida.  That is a big no-no for people who are supposed to be on the same side fighting for a just cause.  Friends just don’t do that.  By his actions, Representative Will Kendrick turned his back on Florida’s gun owners and hunters.

Representative Kendrick’s OP-ED is anti-gun nonsense right out of the gun banners camp.
