Florida Sheriff: Campus Carry, Open Carry Part of Exercising 2nd Amendment

 

DATE:  September 26, 2015
TO:  USF & NRA Member and Friends
FROM:   Marion P. Hammer
  USF Executive Director
  NRA Past President

As support for Campus Carry by concealed weapons license holders who are over 21 years of age and support for Open Carry by concealed weapons license holders continues to grow, some Florida Sheriffs are speaking out on these important Second Amendment issues.  

The outstanding article below featuring Florida Sheriff Wayne Ivey of Brevard County signals a new movement among sheriffs who are standing up and fighting for you and your rights, against those who just give lip service to those rights while lobbying against you.

Unlike conservative college and university administrators and faculty members, who often find themselves in a position of not only having their Second Amendment rights trampled, but their First Amendment rights being chilled by fear of retaliation from their administrations if they speak out, Florida Sheriffs face no such threat.

Sheriffs answer to the people on election day.  Once elected, they must take the oath of office that begins: "I do solemnly swear that I will support, protect and defend the Constitution and Government of the United States, and of the State of Florida...." and ends, "So help me God."   That means the whole Constitution, not just the parts some unions or associations like.

We hope you enjoy this article. WE DID. And we will remember it.
