Help Protect Your Right to Self-Defense!

Friday, May 2, 2008

Protect Your Freedoms Today!

In the fight for our firearms freedom, the Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Florida Retail Federation were determined to kill Florida's House Bill 503, which would protect your right to keep a firearm in your vehicle for personal protection. The Chamber and the Retail Federation even threatened the Legislature and the Governor with a lawsuit.  

The Legislature was not intimidated -- they passed the bill. Governor Charlie Crist (R) was not intimidated -- he signed it into law. They stood up for Florida’s law-abiding gun owners and our self-defense rights against the big business bullies that were trying to eliminate them.

Six days after Governor Crist signed the bill into law, the Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Florida Retail Federation rushed into federal court and filed a frivolous lawsuit to try to have the new law overturned. They had already bragged to the media that they would spend huge amounts of money to fight to negate your constitutional and statutory rights.

On April 16, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported:
"The Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Florida Retail Federation are ready to pay a legal tab they expect to total at least $250,000 to counter what they term an assault on private property rights."

They are relying on Disney, Publix, Walmart and other anti-gun corporate giants to fund their assault on the Legislature, Governor Crist, and on our right-to-carry.
 

We need your help to raise money to fight this blatant attack on you and your right to protect yourself and your family. 

PLEASE send a contribution TODAY.  No matter where you live.  No matter what city, what county, what state -- this is a fight that affects all of us.  Right-to-carry laws are meaningless if corporate bullies are allowed to eliminate them on a whim.
