Sean Shaw Calls for gun Control in new Advertisement


In a 30-second advertisement titled “I Will,” Sean Shaw, Democratic candidate for Attorney General, is making his case for increased gun control in the sunshine state.

In the advertisement, Shaw combats his view that it’s easier to get a firearm than to get quality health care for people that have preexisting conditions.

Shaw explains that “Right now, it’s easier for these people to get one of these [a firearm] than to get health insurance if they have a preexisting condition because of politicians like Ashley Moody and the lobbyists that bankroll her campaign.”

He continues, asserting that “I’m Sean Shaw and I’m running for Attorney General because I believe it’s time we disarm the insurance and gun lobbyists and arm the people with an Attorney General who’s ready to fight for all of us.”

Shaw then argues that “It should not be easier to gain access to a high-powered weapon than it is to get proper health care in Florida. Where are Floridians supposed to get their health care if Ashley Moody has her way and the Affordable Care Act disappears? The answer is simple, they won’t.”

Then, Shaw promises that “As Attorney General, I will withdraw the state of Florida from the preexisting coverage lawsuit and work with the legislature to get common sense gun-reform passed. We don’t have to continue down the same path and expect different results. We owe it to Floridians to act and As Attorney General, I will lead this effort on day one.”
