Florida Critical Alert: Sheriffs Still Attacking Second Amendment Rights

On Wednesday, April 30, 2014, SB-296 by Senator Jeff Brandes will be heard on the Senate Floor.  The Senate needs to substitute the House bill, HB-209 and pass it without amendments.  SB-296 Mandatory Evacuation is the Senate version of HB-209 that has been under constant attack by the Florida Sheriffs Association and continues to be under attack in the Senate.  SB-296 Firearms/Mandatory Evacuations is a bill to allow law-abiding citizens to take their firearms with them when they are in the act of evacuating while complying with a mandatory evacuation order under a declared state of emergency.   This bill will keep law-abiding citizens from being arrested and having their firearms confiscated for taking their firearms with them when they evacuate.
