Ron DeSantis: Requiring Permits for Concealed Carry is ‘Subcontracting Your Rights’
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is warning that requiring a permit for concealed carry subcontracts out constitutional rights to the whims of the person approving permit applications.
News4Jax noted that DeSantis described the concealed permitting process on Tuesday as a “licensing scheme” run by people who can take away your license if they so choose. The Governor made clear he wants to replace the permitting system with a constitutional carry framework.
Precisely so. As I always say: any time you must apply to the government for official permission and a license to exercise something you’ve deceived yourself into thinking of as a “right,” what you actually have is by definition not a right, but a privilege.
Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried is the individual who oversees concealed permitting in Florida. She is also a Democrat candidate for governor in the state. Fried responded to DeSantis by calling the push for constitutional carry “absurd political pandering from the governor of a state that has experienced some of the worst mass shootings in our country’s history.”
DeSantis also spoke about concealed permitting over the weekend, alluding to “the official in charge of these permits” but not calling out Fried by name.
The NRA quoted DeSantis saying “the official in charge of these permits doesn’t support Second Amendment rights.”
Right again, Ron, and it’s high time somebody found the intestinal fortitude to point it out, obvious as it is to some of us. The truth is, NO Demonrat supports the private ownership of firearms, contra whatever brazen lies they feel they must puke up during “election” season. Reflexive opposition to what the plainspoken, easily-understood language of the 2A says is a core prerequisite for acceptance as a Democrat Party candidate for elective office, any breach of which is grounds for immediate and summary expulsion.
Please do not call these people “Demonrat(s)”
They are Progressive Destructionists working very diligently to destroy our great republic: the United States of America: each and every one who votes with Charles in the Senate and Nancy Pelosi in the House.
What, you’re saying they AREN’T demons, or rats?
They give demons and rats a bad name
Progressive my ass they are COMMUNISTS
Some are Fascists, but all are Marxists.
I’ll get on the DeSantis bandwagon when I see an indication he’ll take on something other than the media, like say, shutting down the FBI. That would be a good start.
Don’t take that the wrong way. I like DeSantis, so far. But this is all low hanging fruit with a legislature willing to back him up. You ever hear of DeSantis before Trump?
Yale and Harvard Law I can probably forgive 🙂
Maybe not. Those types almost always turn out to be deep state fuckers.
