Florida: Anti-Gun Lobbyists – OR – Hired-Gun Mercenaries?

Friday, January 4, 2019

 

DATE:   January 4, 2017
TO:       USF & NRA Members and Friends
FROM:  Marion P. Hammer
  USF Executive Director 
  NRA Past President

 

An article posted on FLORIDA POLITICS  dated 12/25/2018 titled The 12 Days of Christmas ...reported that NY Billionaire  Mike Bloomberg's anti-gun group "Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund" has hired the Smith Bryan & Myers lobbying team of Matt Bryan, David Daniels, Thomas Griffin, Jeff Hartley, Lisa Hurley and Jim Naff to fight NRA-USF's "one-woman show," Marion Hammer,  to help advance Bloomberg's gun control agenda in Florida.  

And indeed, all six of these Smith Bryan & Myers lobbyists are listed as lobbyists  for Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund. 

That probably came as big shock to other clients of Smith Bryan & Myers who are definitely not anti-gun.  One such client told us when he read the article,  it was like thinking he had hired a Cardiac surgeon to do a heart by-pass and then finding out he had actually hired a Podiatrist. 

Whether or not these lobbyists are anti-Second Amendment and anti-gun, or just hired mercenaries who do and say what the client tells them to do and say for money remains to be seen.  We do know that Bloomberg is spreading lots of money around in Florida to trample your gun rights and your personal freedoms.
