Governor it is not ‘your meetings’!


Governor, you do not own Tallahassee, it belongs to the citizens of Florida!
We the people do not work for you, you work for 'We the People'!

You have, I am sure as usual, stacked the meeting room with ‘yes people,’ Floridians need honest caring people at the meeting!
Why should our Young Students.
‘Future governors, senators, representatives, presidents,
millionaires, billionaires and anything else their Hearts desire.' be allowed at the meeting, because it is not ‘your meetings’!
You governor, work for the taxpaying public and their parents pay your enormous salary because we are the taxpaying public!
We the adults in this country cannot be trusted. 
The ‘Future governors, senators, representatives, presidents, millionaires, billionaires and anything else their Hearts desire’ have no lobbyist throwing money at them, are not beholding to companies like the ‘Koch Brothers’ and ‘the NRA’ and most of all they want ‘real change’ in this country, you do not!

US Mass Shootings, 1982-2018: Data From Mother Jones’ Investigation

The full data set from our in-depth investigation into mass shootings.

Mark Follman, Gavin Aronsen and Deanna PanUpdated: Feb. 14, 2018




Mass Public Shootings per Decade
1900s : 0

1910s: 2

1920s: 2

1930s: 9

1940s: 8

1950s: 1

1960s: 6

1970s: 13

1980s: 32

1990s: 42

2000s: 28
2010s (three years): 14


Duwe says that 2012 was certainly a horrific year, but it is too early to tell if it signals an ominous trend. The worst year for public shootings was in 1991, when eight incidents took place, he said. With seven incidents, 2012 ranks second, along with 1999 – when the assault ban was in effect. (Duwe says his research shows that assault weapons are used in a relatively small number of cases, but they do result in far more wounded victims)

No means No Tallahassee Florida!


No Never Means No in Tallahassee Florida

Opponents of Drilling Not Convinced Florida Is Off the Table. Nor Proponents.

FlaglerLive | February 8, 2018

Looming around Florida’s shores? (News Service of Florida)

Supporters and opponents of oil drilling closer to Florida’s shoreline refused Thursday to accept U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s declaration that the state wouldn’t be part of a White House plan to expand exploration.

The federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management held the only Florida open house on a proposed five-year program to open more waters to oil and gas exploration.
But participants in competing press conferences doors away at a Tallahassee hotel agreed on one thing:

Zinke’s stance on a Florida exemption isn’t final.

“Why are the environmentalists here?

Why are they raising hell about this issue if no means no?

It’s because, you know what, no is never no,”

said Barney Bishop, a Tallahassee consultant and offshore drilling proponent.

“You all don’t know about the discussions that are being held in private.
No, publicly, can mean a whole lot of things in private.”

Florida Was Eyeing Fast-Tracking Concealed Weapon Licenses Without Background Checks

The joy of guns. (Steven Stehling)

A proposal that would allow some concealed-weapons license applications to be approved when background checks have not been completed was put on hold Thursday because of the deadly high-school shooting in Broward County.

The Senate Appropriations Committee had been scheduled to take up the proposal as part of a wide-ranging bill (SB 740) involving the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

A similar measure in the House (HB 553) awaits a floor hearing.


Kate Kile, the Tallahassee leader of the gun-violence prevention group Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America, 

said
she wasn’t surprised by the postponement, noting the negative attention that could have come after a gunman killed 17 people Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Florida Democrats Speak of Margaret Good’s Victory as a Sign of a Coming “Blue Wave”
FlaglerLive | February 14, 2018

Margaret Good’s victory on Tuesday represents the 36th time a Republican seat has flipped Democratic since the 2016 election. (NSF)

Call it a “blue wave” or a “red revolt,” but either way, Democrats are crowing after flipping a state House seat in a nationally watched Sarasota County special election many consider a bellwether heading into the November midterm campaigns.

Siesta Key lawyer Margaret Good on Tuesday defeated Republican opponent James Buchanan, the son of U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, by more than 7 percentage points in a district President Donald Trump won in 2016.
An impromptu protest takes place about 2 miles from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Friday, February 16, 2018, where 17 people were killed by gunfire Wednesday. The protest was started by one man, Robert Lopez (left) of North Lauderdale, who showed up alone. Another man stopped to join and bought poster board and markers; others stopped by until about 20 people were demonstrating at one time during the day. (Lannis Waters / The Palm Beach Post)

Time for our elected leaders to be in the crosshairs!


Daily Commercial  Our Opinion:
Time for our elected leaders to be in the crosshairs for a change
What can we do?
We can start by holding them accountable. Not Congress and not the Florida Legislature, but each individual member — Republican and Democrat alike. Demand action. Don’t settle for double talk. Vote out those who refuse to commit to solutions.
Vote in those who do.
Here they are,
your elected representatives
for
Lake and Sumter:
Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson;
U.S. Reps. Daniel Webster,
Ron DeSantis
and
Dennis Ross;
Florida Sens. Dennis Baxley and Kelli Stargell;
and
Florida House members
Larry Metz
and
Jennifer Sullivan.
And
we’ll be there with you.
The Daily Commercial will corner these people,
demand that they explain their inaction,
insist that they articulate their specific solutions
and
publish their responses
on this page,
in this space.
It is their time in the crosshairs so that our children, our fathers, our mothers, our brothers and sisters don’t have to spend another moment there.
"You’ve heard this all before.
A gunman has once again used a weapon of war to inflict massive suffering on innocent children and adults. While gutless politicians offer thoughts and prayers as they continue raking in massive donations from the gun lobby, others express outrage at the lack of action.
This time must be different, we say. The tragic loss of life demands that we ban these civilian variants of these military weapons and take other measures to curb gun violence, we insist.
And then nothing happens — legislatively, at least.
When 12 students and one teacher were killed at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999, it seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime horror. But mass shootings at schools kept happening on a regular basis, including the murder of 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in 2012.
In just the time since the Sandy Hook killings, there have been at least 239 school shootings nationwide. At least 438 people have been shot, 138 of whom were killed, according to the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit that tracks such shootings.
The latest massacre hits home for Floridians: the killing of at least 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County. In the hours after the tragedy Wednesday, some familiar voices said some familiar things. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, called the shooting “inexplicable” and said he didn’t want to discuss gun control at that time.
Rubio is among the 10 senators who have received the most donations in their careers from the National Rifle Association, taking more than $3.3 million of its blood money, according to a New York Times database. The only inexplicable thing is how his constituents — we, the voting public — let him get away with pretending there is nothing he can do about gun violence.
Second Amendment purists will argue that guns are not the problem, and they are partially correct. Yes, mental health is part of the equation, perhaps better enforcement of existing gun laws as well.
But here’s the irrefutable fact: Our elected leaders have tackled none of these issues. They haven’t even tried. They simply offer their hollow condolences, bow their heads in scripted, pointless moments of silence and go back about their business — but not the business of protecting lives.
The truth is, they have observed a 19-year moment of silence that started after Columbine in 1999 and continues through the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. In that time, gun laws have actually become more lax and mental health funding has dwindled.
What can we do?
We can start by holding them accountable. Not Congress and not the Florida Legislature, but each individual member — Republican and Democrat alike. Demand action. Don’t settle for double talk. Vote out those who refuse to commit to solutions. Vote in those who do.
Here they are, your elected representatives for Lake and Sumter:
Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson; U.S. Reps. Daniel Webster, Ron DeSantis and Dennis Ross; Florida Sens. Dennis Baxley and Kelli Stargell; and Florida House members Larry Metz and Jennifer Sullivan.
And we’ll be there with you. The Daily Commercial will corner these people, demand that they explain their inaction, insist that they articulate their specific solutions and publish their responses on this page, in this space.
It is their time in the crosshairs so that our children, our fathers, our mothers, our brothers and sisters don’t have to spend another moment there".
