Governor Rick Scott Supports 2nd Amendment

June 25th, 2013 by flanews

The only gun legislation to make it to the Governor’s desk has created state-wide controversy.

The Governor has until July 2nd to sign the bill into law, which will not allow people seeking mental treatment to purchase a gun – even if they volunteer for commitment.  

On one side, people say it will keep the guns out of the hands out of those with mental illness, while others say it violates constitutional rights.

”I’m a strong supporter for the 2nd amendment so I’ll be reviewing that bill like I do with other bills. But, I’m a very strong supporter for the 2nd amendment,” said Governor Rick Scott.

If the Governor signs the bill into law. It will go into effect July 1.
