Florida: Anti-Gun Advocates Working to Change the Florida Constitution

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Your Attendance is Crucial

If you believe in Freedom and the Constitution you need to fight for your rights.

The Florida Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) is holding public meetings around the state for public input about making changes to the Florida Constitution.

Previous hearings and future hearings are being held on university campuses where it is convenient for liberal antigun professors to show up and lobby against gun rights.

Antigun groups like The Florida League of Women Voters will show up at these CRC hearings and demand that gun control measures be added to our Constitution.

Second Amendment supporters need to attend these hearings and speak up so that our right to keep and bear arms is protected.

Your message should be to take waiting periods out of our Constitution and keep all gun control measures out of Florida’s Constitution.

Please ARRIVE EARLY and SIGN UP TO SPEAK.

Mark these dates on your calendar. Please plan to attend. This is your Constitution and your rights that are in jeopardy.
