    Governor Charlie Crist VETOED CW Trust Fund Raid

    I am proud of our Governor !!!

    DATE: May 27, 2009
    TO: USF & NRA Member and Friends
    FROM: Marion P. Hammer
    USF Executive Director
    NRA Past President

    This morning, Governor Charlie Crist used his veto pen to veto the $6 Million raid on the Concealed Weapons and Firearms Licensing Trust Fund sweep put in the budget by the legislature.

    Governor Crist deserves our profound appreciation for his veto.

    The legislature intended to take $6 million from the Division of Licensing Concealed Weapons and Firearm Trust Fund that is intended, by law, to be used solely for administering the concealed weapons and firearms licensing program. That would have been a DEFACTO TAX ON GUN OWNERS

    Please Call, Fax, or Email Governor Charlie Crist and thank him for the VETO OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT TAX created by the intended sweep of $6 Million from the Division of Licensing Trust Fund.

    Phone number: (850) 488-4441 or (850) 488-7146
    Fax number: (850) 487-0801

    Send your email to the Governor at this address:

    Charlie.Crist@MyFlorida.com

    IN THE SUBJECT LINE PUT:

    THANK YOU for your VETO of the CW Trust Fund Sweep

    Please send your email today!!!!!

    I knew there was a reason I liked him.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I did send him an earlier email requesting his support and another, just now, thanking him FOR his support.

    Charlie is thinking about a run in 2012... I think he wants to make sure the ever-growing gun bloc likes him. Might make people forget his slobbering support of the $780 billion stimpack...

    We have to recognize the positive as well as the negative. I just sent my email. Yes we should thank him, but also the many Floridians who took action and sent emails and letters to express how concerned we were about this issue.

    Trust me, if we had not opened our mouths, the outcome would have been different.
