Florida Emergency Alert! Carrying a Firearm During Emergency Evacuation

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

DATE:   March 25 10, 2014
TO:      USF & NRA Member and Friends
FROM:  Marion P. Hammer

Your right to carry your firearms with you during an evacuation is on the line.


Tomorrow, Thursday, March 27, 2014, HB-209 by Representative Heather Fitzenhagen (R-Ft. Myers) will be heard in the House Judiciary Committee at 8:30am.

HB-209 by Representative Heather Fitzenhagen is a bill to protect citizens from being charged with a crime, and having their guns confiscated, for carrying a firearm during a mandatory evacuation ordered by the Governor.

When you're ordered to take your family and leave your home and belongings behind, you should not be deprived of the right to take your firearms with you to protect yourself and your family. 

This bill is especially important because our state is prone to mandatory evacuations due to hurricanes.  Further, leaving your firearms behind for looters/criminals poses a great danger to emergency personnel and other law-abiding citizens.

Governor Rick Scott and the Florida National Guard have expressed SUPPORT for this bill.

However, some anti-gun segments of law enforcement are fighting against the bill.  They don't support your Second Amendment rights and your right to protect yourself, your family and your property.   They seem to be only concerned about what they want and what is convenient for the them.

 

THIS IS CRITICAL!!!! PLEASE ACT NOW
COMMITTEE MEMBERS NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU!!!!

 


It's a simple bill that is about your safety and the safety of your family.

YOUR help is needed to get this bill passed by this Committee!!!
