WHY YOU NEED A BULLETPROOF VEST AFTER THE ELECTION
With a new republican president soon to begin his forthcoming four year term and with the majority of Congress being of the same party, we can safely assume gun laws and concealed weapons are going to be a subject of major change in the closing months of 2016 and beginning of next year. On one side, democrats are pushing for restraints on the second amendment that look to further limit the possession of firearms close to important public sites. Yet the republicans, with the majority of seats in Congress, seem to be determined not to let that happen, but rather are pushing for more lenient laws regarding concealed weapons.
NEWEST ADDITIONS TO FLORIDA GUN LAWS
On this past Tuesdays’ debate, the house and senate discussed two high pro-file gun cases. One being the amendment proposed by Rep. John Wood pleading the case that lawmakers should be allowed by law to carry concealed guns in official meetings and during legislative sessions. The second and more controversial amendment would allow citizens with permits to carry concealed weapons in public universities and colleges, even with the majority of university presidents and police being heavily against it. Addressing the democrats main concern tying relaxed gun laws with this past years mass shootings, republican speakers have claimed that gun-free zones have repeatedly been a target for terrorists and that open gun laws are a matter of public safety since everyone should have the right to defend themselves. Both amendments seem very likely to pass here in Florida where the amount of permit holders exceeds 1.4 million people.
WHY GUN LAWS ARE ONLY GETTING LEANER… IN FLORIDA
Holding the large majority of seats in Congress, 247 of the 435 possible, republicans can almost be assured that 2017 will be an important year in terms of gun laws and their leniency. Despite the uphill battle faced in these past 8 years the perseverance of gun carriers and pro-gun lobbyists will surely soon pay off, at least for Floridians. With the revisiting of the measures failed during last years session, lawmakers could end up eliminating gun-free zones altogether. In the past, proposals such as these would exempt private businesses or events that required security checks from jurisdiction of the amendments; but that, along with extensive background checks might just be a thing of the past since all attempts by the democratic electives to limit certain people, like those on the no-fly list or suspected terrorists, but all the measures seem to be set up for failure since both sides are at a stalemate.
HAS THERE EVER BEEN A BETTER TIME?
With the threat of more and more concealed carry weapons being allowed in public places like schools, universities, and even law making sessions, the high rate of mass shootings that America already has is sure to sky rocket. With mass shootings at an all time high of at least one every two months, we need to make sure we are taking every precaution to protect ourselves and our children against any attacks. Another thing to take into consideration is the alarming increase in hate crimes against people because of their race, sexual orientation, and religion that was a direct result of the election. When so many terrifying threats are made against minorities with the gun laws that we already have in place, one can surely expect the aggression to have even more fatal consequences if anyone and everyone is allowed to carry a concealed weapon any-where they want. The time has come to start considering what steps we can take to protect ourselves in a society were there are more guns than people.
