House Bill 155, introduced by state Representative Jason Brodeur (R-33) PASSED yesterday in the House Criminal Justice subcommittee. HOWEVER, a vote that should have been 11 to 4 in favor of gun owner's privacy rights was only a 9 to 6 margin because two House Republicans -- who sat side-by-side -- voted against us and never had the common decency to contact us and say they were going to abandon gun owners. VOTING AGAINST gun owners was state Representative Carlos Trujillo (R-116) from Miami. Representative Trujillo is a newly-elected freshman and although this was opening day of his first legislative session, he should have known better. He should have remembered that your word is your bond. He needs to know that he made a big mistake and we are watching. You can e-mail him at: [email protected]. ALSO VOTING AGAINST gun owners was state Representative John Tobia (R-31) from Satellite Beach. Representative Tobia KNOWS better. He's not newly elected and there is no excuse for Representative Tobia's actions. He's a veteran legislator who has solicited NRA's endorsement and support in his campaigns every time he has run for the state House. He has indicated on his questionnaires every time that he is 100% on Second Amendment issues. Not only did he say he supported our position on this specific legislative issue, he signed his name to it. Yesterday, he showed us that he has not been truthful with us and he needs to know we will remember his actions. You can e-mail him at: [email protected].
