CRYPTKEEPER NELSON CAUGHT Once Again Attacking YOUR Second Amendment Rights
Liberals seem to want nothing more than to try to whittle away at the rights of people.
Oh they won’t directly try to get rid of the Second Amendment but they will put as many roadblocks in the way for legal gun ownership that you would almost have to go to another planet to legally buy a gun.
As Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott battle for the Senate seat Nelson now holds, the two have clashed over potential gun control in light of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting in February that claimed 17 lives.
“You are not going to solve the problem until you get the assault rifles off the street and until you can get a criminal background check on every transfer of a gun,” Nelson has said, according to Breitbart.
Scott acted after the shooting, signing legislation to raise the minimum age to buy rifles and shotguns from 18 to 21, adding long guns to the weapons covered by a three-day waiting period, and banning bump stocks, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
During an October debate, Nelson said he wants to “get the assault rifles off the street,” the Sun-Sentinel reported.
Nelson attacked Scott for his “A-plus rating with the NRA. He has passed more NRA-backed legislation than any other governor in the history of this state.”
Nelson said guns like the AR-15 “are for killing. They’re not for hunting.”
Scott said Nelson supports “taking away certain guns from law-abiding citizens. I think we ought to focus on the problem. The problem is we have people that want to harm themselves or others. And I think we ought to take all weapons away from them.”
He contrasted his views with those of Nelson by saying, “I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in the First Amendment. I believe in all the amendments of the Bill of Rights.”
That’s not how Nelson sees it, Spectrum News reported.
Nelson’s support for gun control earned him the support of former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s anti-gun group, Everytown for Gun Safety.
The group is spending $2 million to support Nelson, the Miami Herald reported.
The issue resonates with Florida voters, said Dave Levinthal with the Center for Public Integrity.
