News Service Florida Alert System: 11/20/2015

WEEKLY ROUNDUP: HIGH NOON AT THE CAPITOL CORRAL
(Recap and analysis of the week in state government)

By BRANDON LARRABEE
THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA

THE CAPITAL, TALLAHASSEE, November 20, 2015..........One of the lobbying groups with the most firepower at the Florida Capitol is the National Rifle Association. It's rare, though not unheard of, for the organization to lose a legislative vote.

Which is why it was somewhat surprising to see a House committee shoot down a measure the NRA has backed for the 2016 session.

That was just one of a series of bills about firearms considered in Tallahassee this week, and in most cases the NRA managed to outgun its opponents.

But the gun-rights lobby and those who want more restrictions on firearms --- or just to keep the current ones --- were hardly the only people trading political fire in recent days.

Gov. Rick Scott was in a face-off with the Obama administration over whether to let Syrian refugees into Florida after a series of terrorist attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead. Intelligence agencies believe some of those involved in the attacks, claimed by the Islamic State militant group based in Iraq and Syria, might have used the flow of refugees from Syria's civil war to sneak into Europe undetected.

Meanwhile, the Legislature and voting-rights groups prepared for a legal shootout in a Leon County courtroom that will decide the future of the state Senate --- and could give Florida's downtrodden Democrats an opportunity to regain a foothold in Tallahassee after 20 years defined more or less by GOP dominance.

GUNFIGHTS GALORE

One of the most notable defeats of a bill in committee so far this fall came Tuesday, when the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee narrowly voted down a measure that could have made it easier for people to claim self-defense in shooting incidents.

Subcommittee Chairman Carlos Trujillo, R-Miami, joined four Democrats and Rep. Charles Van Zant, R-Keystone Heights, in opposing the measure (HB 169), which proposed to shift a burden of proof to the state in cases involving Florida's "stand your ground" law. The bill failed on a tie vote.

The controversial stand your ground law says people can use deadly force and do not have a duty to retreat if they think it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm.

Trujillo, a former prosecutor, said the law works without the proposed change.

"I'm sympathetic for the individuals who find themselves in bad situations, with bad facts and bad judges," Trujillo said. "But I'm also more sympathetic to women of domestic violence, young members of my community who are oftentimes killed, (and) individuals try to use a good law that was passed with noble purposes for very ignoble attempts."

But upon leaving the meeting, NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer said the gun-rights group will continue to push for the measure, even if it is dead for the 2016 session.

"It will be back until it passes, period," Hammer said. "In the meantime, the people can pay attention and elect people who are more sympathetic to them than prosecutors."

The NRA and Unified Sportsmen of Florida seemed intent on helping those people pay attention, sending an email to members calling Trujillo's actions an "orchestrated" betrayal of "law-abiding gun owners."

On the other side of the Capitol, supporters were trying to keep a similar bill (SB 344) alive. The Senate Criminal and Civil Justice Appropriations Subcommittee voted Wednesday to approve the Senate version, and the sponsor said the fight over the legislation isn't over.

"Everything is in play until Sine Die," said Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, referring to the Latin phrase for "without day" that marks the end of a legislative session. "I wouldn't describe anything as being the end of the road."

The week was far from a total loss for gun-rights supporters. Two other controversial measures --- a bill that would allow the open carrying or firearms in Florida and another that would allow guns on college campuses --- both moved closer to becoming law.

The House Justice Appropriations Subcommittee on Wednesday narrowly backed the bill (HB 163) that would allow the 1.45 million people in Florida with concealed-weapons licenses to openly carry.

The 7-6 vote came after language was attached to the bill that is intended to protect businesses and private property owners who don't want people to openly carry on their premises.

The specter of the terrorist attacks in France loomed over the hearing, at least for some supporters of the bill. Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch said the state needs to give citizens every opportunity to defend themselves, "especially in the times we're living in."

"Look at what happened in Paris, France," Finch said. "Nobody was armed, so there is a lot of dead folks. It's ugly, but that's the facts."

Opponents argued the bill would hurt tourism and create public-safety issues.

"I buy the argument that this is a top-down bill and not one that cries out from the public for change," said Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg. "I still don't get it, how does bringing more guns to a fight bring more safety?"

The following day, the House Judiciary Committee voted 13-5 to approve legislation (HB 4001) by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, that would allow concealed-weapon permit holders to carry guns while out of their vehicles on state campuses.

The Judiciary Committee vote was the final step for the bill before it goes to the House floor during the session that starts in January.

"It's not about outsourcing campus police," said Steube, who pursued similar legislation that reached the House floor in the spring but got stalled in the Senate.

"It's about Greg Steube and other people that have served admirably and have a conceal-carry permit to be able to defend themselves and others," Steube continued. "That's what it's about, and no one can tell me I don't have the training to do that."

But Lake Worth Rep. Dave Kerner, one of five Democrats on the committee who opposed the bill, disputed that the measure is intended to correct an infringement on Second Amendment rights, as supporters have claimed.

"On this policy issue, it's very clear that nobody wants this save for some very passionate students that have come before us," Kerner said. "There is no groundswell of support for this bill. We've had people that rarely stick their neck out, in positions of high authority come out against this bill and this policy. And I think that we should be humble enough to defer to them."

SCOTT THROWS UP ROADBLOCK TO REFUGEES

Gun debates weren't the only ones influenced by the events in Paris. Scott announced he wants to close Florida's borders to additional refugees from Syria in the wake of last Friday's terrorist assault on Paris in which at least one of the attackers held a Syrian passport.

Scott advised U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in a letter Monday that the Florida Department of Children and Families, which receives federal funds, won't assist efforts to relocate Syrian refugees destined to be resettled in Florida.

As the move doesn't preclude federal officials from resettling Syrian refugees by working with local social-service agencies, Scott also asked in the letter for congressional leaders to prevent funding for such relocations to Florida or anywhere else within the U.S.

"As the federal elected body that exercises oversight and authorizes federal spending, please take any action available through the powers of the United States Congress to prevent federal allocations toward the relocation of Syrian refugees without extensive examination into how this would affect our homeland security," Scott wrote.

Some Republican state lawmakers, meanwhile, said they want Florida to crack down on cities and counties that provide "sanctuary" for individuals illegally in the country.

In one of a series of bills outlined Tuesday, government officials could face fines up to $5,000 a day for enacting policies or encouraging practices that could provide sanctuary to undocumented people. The proposal would also allow people who have been victims of crimes in sanctuary communities, committed by immigrants illegally in the country, to sue the local governments.

"We're just saying when the federal government asks for assistance, provide it," said Rep. Larry Metz, R-Yalaha.

But Maria Rodriguez, executive director for the Florida Immigrant Coalition, denounced the legislation as forcing local officials to "essentially turn in families who lack immigration status."

"Beyond the fueling of hate and racism that will further divide communities, this 'big brother is watching' bill actually strong-arms local government, at taxpayer expense, to go after its own residents," Rodriguez said in a press release. "It is not only costly; it will actually harm our safety by undermining the public trust."

STORY OF THE WEEK: The NRA suffered a rare defeat on a revision to the state's controversial "stand your ground" self-defense law, but otherwise continued pushing proposals it supports through the process.

Reviews

 

Naples Gun School - 5 stars  I've been a repeat customer for FFL transfers with Naples Gun School for quite some time. Dave's customer service and knowledge are second to none. After speaking with Dave for a few moments, you start to feel as if you have known him for quite a while. I look forward to continuing my business when the new location opens. - Robert Boyette

I really enjoyed the class yesterday, and it was very nice to meet David and Ginny. David is very knowledgeable, helpful, and best of all: has a sense of humor. I was more nervous than I thought I would be because this was the first time in my life that I've ever shot a semi-automatic weapon. David lives and breathes this stuff and his presence and ease with weapons was very calming for me when I was at the range. Ginny was also very supportive throughout the whole class. Thank you guys so much! It's a pleasure and I will be back to purchase supplies from you! - Shenandoah Webb

Naples Gun School - 5 starsTook the 3/31/18 class and loved it! Dave was very informative and his laid back teaching style made the 4 hour class fly by. Would recommend this class to anyone interested in a CWP. Thanks Dave and Ginny! - Kelly Gardner

Naples Gun School - 5 stars I’d like to thank The Naples Gun School for the time and effort they took in order to help me become a more responsible hand gun owner. By taking your CCWP class on 3.31.2018, I’m honestly a better person today than I was yesterday. Your course is not only interesting, but informative as well. The time we had together flew by. Throughout the whole process, they were calm and patient with every student. Especially after everyone seemed to drop their cartridges on the floor during the revolver training portion of the program. I highly recommend Naples Gun School to anyone that’s interested in becoming a CCWP holder. And I definitely will use their services by purchasing all my gun needs through their establishment. David & Ginny, thank you so much. I had a wonderful time!Chris Shaffer

Naples Gun School - 5 stars Used Naples Gun School for a FFL transfer and after talking with David decided to take his CCW class and am glad I did. David is very knowledgeable and his class is small so you receive one on one training in the classroom and the range. I Highly recommend Naples Gun School. You won’t find a better class in Naples. Thank you David for a great experience. - Michael Ferrarelli

 

Naples Gun School - 5 stars Thorough, energetic, knowledgeable, PATIENT, and even entertaining at times! As an Educator, I know it can be daunting sometimes to teach the same material over and over, but David certainly didn't show it. You can tell how passionate he is about what he does.
I researched multiple options around town in choosing the provider for my CCW class. David & Ginny as a husband & wife team, provided the BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE in answering all of my questions thoroughly and promptly before even signing up. And somehow, Naples Gun School was also able to provide the LOWEST COST in town!
As a female and brand new to guns, David & Ginny made me feel safe, secure, and comfortable. THANK YOU! A+++ -

I took the class on 3/10/18 and I was blown away. David and his wife are excellent people and David is an excellent instructor. The class is excellent and exceeded my expectations with information on the laws of Florida, and as well to carry properly, load the weapons as well as placement of holding weapons. If your looking to buy a weapon he is the man to go to. I personally bought my firearm from and he equipped me with great knowledge during my time there. I give this class 100 out of 100 and highly recommended. David is a great guy and instructor with many years of experience!! - Cory Duffy

Naples Gun School - 5 stars I attended the conceal carry and gun safety training class on Feb 17th, 2018. David was very knowlegable and provided a lot of information that I think should be part of any gun safety or conceal carry training. He was very professional and took the time after the class and before we met at the gun range to answer several questions I had as well as show me a few different gun options they sell. I highly recommend David and Naples gun shop & school for anyone wanting to seriously learn what they need to before purchasing or using a firearm. Thank you, David! - Amanda Daves

I had an amazing experience in the CCW class that David teaches! This class was so informative and interesting. The way David presented everything made it extremely fun and easy to retain. The size of the class was 12 people, so we all got one on one training and I feel it was the perfect size of class. I learned so many important things that I never would have even thought about without this class. Ginny was also so wonderful, and so supportive when I was nervous. I had so many questions that were answered, and the amount of knowledge Ginny and Davis shared with the class was astounding. I feel very confident now about gun safety and self defense and I would highly recommend this class!! David and Ginny know their stuff!! -Senae Hughes
