“One of the greatest Second Amendment victories we’ve ever had” – NOT !!!!!!


Speaker of the House Richard Corcoran (R) is adding insult to injury by calling the betrayal of law-abiding firearms owners “one of the greatest Second Amendment victories we’ve ever had.”  

Speaker Corcoran helped engineer passage of SB-7026 – the gun control bill – to violate the rights of young adults aged 18-20 by denying them their constitutional right to purchase a firearm.  In addition, the bill included a 3-day waiting period on the purchase of rifles and shotguns and an outright ban on possession of bump stocks and other firearm accessories – which could be legally purchased and possessed until the law passed on Friday, March 9, 2018.

Corcoran tried to justify his betrayal by claiming the provision in the bill to arm school employees makes it “one of the greatest Second Amendment victories we've ever had” because it ends “gun free zones on school campuses.”  That is complete nonsense and ignores the unconstitutional gun control included in the bill.
