    If every time we (as gun owners) would do something actually, other then posting and discussing issues on this and other sites, the world would be different.
    We need to stand up and let them hear our voice!

    I sent an email yesterday and got a confirmation receipt, but no reply from the Gov's staff yet. I'm sure it'll just be some form letter BS anyway. If his office is still open when I get home I'll be sure to fill some staffers ear with my thoughts as well.

    Some may think it doesn't matter but if those monies are originally sourced from tax dollars then I think this could be a case of "the government and the government taketh away".

    I understand that the permit application/renew process is currently taking longer than Florida statute says it is supposed to but that is an entirely different matter.

    From the NRA alert:

    Money in the concealed weapons trust fund came from gun owners. No money to administer and run the concealed weapons and firearms licensing program has ever come from general revenue, or any other state fund or revenue source. The taking of these gun owner user fees is an unauthorized tax on the exercise of the Second Amendment.

    First let me say, I'm not from Florida or involved in Florida politics in any way.

    I see all the derogatory comments about the Governor on this thread, like he's the one behind it. Unless I'm missing something, the e-mail are to urge him to exercise his line item veto power. The guys that need to be blasted are the ones who voted for the bill, not the Governor.

    As to him being a FSU alum....it could be worse. He could have gone to Thug U., also known as U.of Miami.

    the thing is,although I personally did not make derogatory comment in my post,many conservative Florida voters are quite disappointed with the governor.I have a personal story,relating to Governor Crist' policies,but will not bore with the details. Usually,if persons are seemingly 'hard' on an elected official,there might perhaps be some cause! ............Cheers,Carry ok.

    NRA blasts Florida lawmakers for $6 million raid on concealed weapons permits fund -- OrlandoSentinel.com

    Gun owners up in arms over Florida lawmakers' raid on trust fund
    NRA blasts Charlie Crist for $6 million taken from concealed weapons permits fund

    By Aaron Deslatte | Tallahassee Bureau
    May 22, 2009

    TALLAHASSEE - In the latest show of the influence Florida's gun lobby holds over state politics, Gov. Charlie Crist's office has been bombarded by tens of thousands of complaints from angry gun owners.

    The spark: Lawmakers this month took $6 million from a trust fund meant to help process concealed-weapons permits.

    The funding "sweep" was part of a broader $600million raid on trust funds set up to finance dedicated government services or programs. Lawmakers chose to use the money instead to help pay operating expenses for schools, health care and other government programs.

    The $6 million came out of roughly $8 million in a concealed-weapons- and firearms-licensing fund, which is financed through application fees and used to pay for equipment and other expenses in the state office that handles gun permits.

    The NRA's powerful lobbyist, Marion Hammer, said she was blindsided by the move and launched a lobbying campaign calling it a "last-minute sneak attack" on gun owners.

    Since then, gun enthusiasts from across Florida and other states have e-mailed, called and written letters to urge Crist to veto the sweep. Crist's office has totaled more than 25,000 so far.

    Tim Larin, an NRA member from San Ramon, Calif., wrote that the sweep was "a de facto tax on the exercise of the Second Amendment."

    "Who is running your state anyway?" wrote Jim Hathcoat, of Olathe, Kan.

    Hammer said depleting the fund could cause serious backlogs if equipment in the permitting office within the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services were to break down. The state already tapped the fund earlier this year to try to reduce a backlog of permit requests that have flooded the state recently, Hammer said.

    "If the computer system crashed, then we'd have to go on state welfare, and gun owners don't take kindly to programs that aren't self-sufficient," said Hammer.

    Crist said Thursday that he had heard the call and was considering vetoing the transfer when he signs the $66 billion budget next week.

    After meeting with Hammer, the governor was asked what they spoke about.

    "What did I tell her? That I love her," Crist said.

    "We had a very good discussion. She's quite an advocate. I'm a supporter of the Second Amendment, and I look forward to giving that potential veto a thorough review and making a determination."
    We'll see. The good news (for us) is that the word got out and the message seems to have been heard.

    Once again, strong and numerous letters, calls and emails have gotten our position acknowledged.

    We need to remember how effective this email campain has been and do it each time an anti or pro gun legislative action arises.

    If each of us tells just 2 of our friends and they do the same, we can easily flood the office and convince the poliicians to do the right thing.

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

    I sent an e-mail just before I started this thread. I've still not received any kind of response other than a canned auto reply.
