Showdown at the ‘OK’ Corral

 AG Commissioner Nikki Fried along with some local “Quick Draw McCraw” municipal leaders and the Florida Democratic Party are urging the Florida Supreme Court to consider hearing a recently overturned ruling by an appellate court that keeps municipalities from banning the possession of certain “assault weapons.” This a gun grab.

The law that Gov. Ron DeSantis signed in 2019 penalizes cities leaders with stiff fines and removal if they try to prevent citizens from owning AR-15 style weapons or similar “assault weapons.” READ MORE

 

Surfside Agony

Now with the search for survivors in the tragic building collapse down in Surfside comes to a close and recovery operations are underway, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) is continuing to praise the bipartisan effort by local, state, and government leaders during the search and rescue, and now the recovery efforts.

It was almost surreal to see both Republican and Democratic leaders shoulder-to-shoulder working together in unison to address the disaster.

DeSantis’ Ace in the Hole

Outside of his political agenda, accomplishments as governor, and of course the money he has raised for his reelection efforts, Gov. DeSantis’ biggest weapon to use against both Rep. Charlie Crist and Commissioner Nikki Fried is…Gotcha! More in next Monday’s JUICE.

Rep. Val Demings @RepValDemings-Over half of Floridians live in areas where there is only one internet provider. Even in places where fast broadband is available, it is often far too expensive. It’s time for universal broadband coverage for every American.

Rick Scott @SenRickScott Proud to be joined by @marcorubio @SenTomCotton & @RogerMarshallMD in introducing the Protect American Power Infrastructure Act. We must protect our critical energy infrastructure & prohibit buying equipment from our adversaries, like Communist China
