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:
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.
Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.
I am jealous of your governor
I did send him an earlier email requesting his support and another, just now, thanking him FOR his support.

Send him a personal "Thank you note"! He deserves it!
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Email sent. Awesome job!

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...
"Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"
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.
