An anticipated gun show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida this month has been cancelled amid pressure from a Democratic mayor.
Florida Gun Shows, the state’s largest gun show promoter, hyped a March 17-18 gun show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. But that show has been cancelled.
“The mayor requested that we cancel it and we did,” Florida Gun Shows representative Morgan told Big League Politics, referring to Democratic Fort Lauderdale mayor Jack Seiler, who has been in office since 2009.
Seiler’s mayoral office confirmed that the gun show was cancelled due to Seiler’s request, which he spoke about at a City Commission meeting following the mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school last month.
Will Democratic politicians be able to cancel more gun shows as pro-gun groups face increasing pressure in the aftermath of the Parkland shooting?
Nevertheless, gun show activity has been strong since the shooting, particularly in Florida.
“The lines stretched out the door this weekend at a gun show in Tampa, Fla., as thousands of potential buyers and the merely curious waited for their turn to browse booths stocked with the latest firearms, ammunition, customizable holsters and patriotic paraphernalia.
Inside, parents pushed their babies in strollers past T-shirts emblazoned with phrases like “I study triggernometry.” A nonprofit group in one booth was raffling off a rifle to raise money to battle child and animal abuse. On large signs by the entrance, the National Rifle Association was offering refunds on the $11 admission if shoppers signed up for a membership. Outside, Girl Scouts were selling cookies…
Several sellers said they were on track to double their normal sales for a weekend. “It’s sad to say, but whenever there’s a shooting, business only goes up because people are afraid of losing their right to own a certain weapon,” said Quaidman Woody, who was running a booth with his father, a sales representative for CrossHeirs. “So even if they don’t need another AR, they’ll buy another AR or pieces of it.'”
Texas Gun Rights Endorses Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther
Luther is running for the Texas Senate.
Earlier this month, pro-Second Amendment organization Texas Gun Rights PAC endorsed Shelley Luther in her run for Texas State Senate.
Luther gained national attention for her refusal to close down her salon in Dallas, Texas, which was in violation of Dallas, County’s lockdown order. She would end up in jail for violating the order but would later be set free after Texas Governor Greg Abbott took action to release her.
Chris McNutt, the Director of Texas Gun Rights PAC, issued a statement on Texas Gun Rights PAC’s endorsement of Luther:
It is clear Shelley Luther is the strongest pro-gun candidate running to fill the Senate District 30 seat being vacated by Pat Fallon. Texas Gun Rights PAC is proud to endorse Shelley Luther for Senate in the September 29th Special Election.
“Even before Shelley decided to run for office, she proved she had the courage to stand up and fight against an overreaching government without backing down,” McNutt added. “So it’s no surprise Shelley Luther was also the first candidate in the Senate District 30 race to take a bold, pro-gun stance.”
Constitutional Carry is one of Luther’s legislative priorities for the 2021 legislative session. This issue has been a priority for the Texas Republican Party during the last 6 years. Drew Springer, Luther’s opponent in the Senate election, never supported Constitutional Carry.
Passing Constitutional Carry legislation is part of Luther’s campaign platform and has been a top priority of the Republican Party of Texas for the past 6 years. Her opponent, State Representative Drew Springer, has never backed Constitutional Carry since he came into office back in 2012.
“State Representative Drew Springer claims to be ‘pro-gun,’ and yet he repeatedly refused to co-author Constitutional Carry every year that it was introduced,” commented McNutt. “Pro-gun Texans in Senate District 30 need a leader who is willing to fight for the Second Amendment like Shelley Luther, not another political backbencher looking for a job promotion.”
Should Constitutional Carry be passed, Texas would be the 16th state with this law.
Thanks to the political establishment’s constant legislative roadblocking, Constitutional Carry has had a considerable amount of trouble in being passed in the Lone Star State.
With politicians like Luther potentially in the mix, Constitutional Carry has a stronger chance of being passed. America First patriots living in Texas Senate District 30 should resoundingly vote for Luther due to her firm commitment to limited government.
