Florida’s District 28 contains Winter Springs and Oviedo. Your state Representative is Davis Smith, a Republican. He is also opposed to open carry.

Open carry is publicly wearing a sidearm wherever you want in the state. … And there are some states that have it. I don’t believe open carry is right for Florida. Why? Because those European tourists spend, you know, seven times as much…South American tourists spend four times as much as American.

Our economy…does everybody like not having an income tax in Florida? Yeah. So we have a sales tax and our economy is tourism. And cultures that don’t grow up with guns, don’t have the NRA and gun safety…The NRA is the single largest gun safety organization in the United States. That’s why I’m a life member of the NRA.

And so, for business reasons, I don’t think that open carry is right for Florida. Constitutional carry, or permitless carry, is different and I’ll tell you, I’m undecided on the issue. I’m open, and if the bill gets filed and we’re gonna hear it, you’re welcome to come talk to me and lobby….

Just because the Democrats are your enemy doesn’t make Republicans your friend.

Remember those rental car plates that the gangbangers figured out and robbed and killed FLA tourists back in the early 1990s?
The Grand Old Politburo is the WWF/WCW kayfabe faux opposition party in on the Long March to burn down America once and for all.
At least we know what we are getting with the CPUSA democrats.

And many of those tourists love to go rent guns at a range and shoot. Education anybody? Make it a feature instead of a bug.

As far as voting…
