Florida politicians debate gun-control after Parkland shooting (and one of them is lying...)

John CardilloRebel Host | Off The Cuff

Javier Manjarres is publisher and editor at Shark-Tank.com, the premier site for Florida politics. He’s been closely following developments in reaction to the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

The tragedy has reignited calls for what politicians call “meaningful” gun control, Javier thinks some bi-partisan legislation will be implemented to address the mental health component of background checks.

Democrats have expressed interest in taking away guns and cutting-down on high capacity magazines, but Javier doesn’t think that’s going to happen.

Proposals to raise the minimum age to purchase a long-gun to 21 have received support from Senator Marco Rubio. Whether or not he’ll follow through is still a matter of speculation.

We discussed false claims by Democratic Rep. Ted Deutsch about his residency and the legality of AR-15s before 2004. Deutsch claims to be an opponent of guns, but he hasn’t sponsored any legislation to restrict their sales during his eight years in Congress.

I also asked Javier about rumors that he’s going to run against Deutsch in this November’s congressional election.

Stay tuned for more of The Rebel’s coverage from CPAC 2018.

Linda Cayer, and that is exactly why Democrats(deep state rats) want to take the citizens weapons away.

The latest revelation out of Parkland Florida is that the Deputy assigned to the school as resource officer was outside the building hunkered down and failed to enter to engage the shooter Cruz.
Apparently protect and serve didn’t cross this officers mind .
To the best of my knowledge , FBI Director Wray has not personally addressed the glaring failures of the Bureau . He’s just another swamp rat protecting the rights that has taken over the institution.
It’s a fiasco from start to finish and the only solution the socialist Democrats have is to confiscate all the guns in America.
That isn’t a solution,it’s a panacea

On the issue of age: I grew up in Nova Scotia, a long time ago. When I was 15 my Father bought me my first shotgun, then when I was 16 he bought a new rifle and gave me his old one. Over the years, to I was 22 when I moved away, he and I hunted every fall, during that time he taught me to respect guns and about the safe handling of guns. During that time I also acquired a love and respect for the woods and the animals that lived in them. Not to mention a bond that we shared that we otherwise might not have.

In my short article/story “A Mornings Hunt, We never fired a shot, but nonetheless it was a successful morning” found at http://heinzegroup.com/insight.htm#18 I tried to convey what it is really all about.

I hope that for generations to come, others can enjoy similar experiences.

The people who push for gun control … either in the USA or in Canada … in my opinion fall into two camps:
1) too stupid to understand the negative ramifications of disarming the population
2) pushing for a disarmament of the population to pave the way for a socialist/communist dictatorship.

I believe that President Trump supports the second amendment as he does the entire American constitution.
His proposals on gun management might be a way to draw attention back to the Constitution and why Americans have the right to bear arms . They bear arms not for hunting , but to deter tyrannical governments
