The Sarasota City Commission made a foolish and failed end run in an attempt to take away 2nd Amendment rights of the citizens of Sarasota Fl. WOW who the hell do these left wing liberal wingnuts think they are, the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun like Omar Mateen is a good guy with a gun, if just one of the people inside the Pulse Orlando nightclub had a gun and bullets were flying in the direction of Omar Mateen the carnage would have been lessened.
SARASOTA Monday June 20, 2016..Sarasota City Manager Tom Barwin presented to commissioners the Safe Communities Initiative calling for limits on the availability of “military grade, high capacity” weapons to only law enforcement agencies. And while a local jurisdiction in Florida cannot implement its own restrictions on weapon access, the city can take a loud stance asking state and federal officials to take action. Equality Florida co-chair Ken Shelin, a former Sarasota City Commissioner, expects Barwin’s proposal to pass unanimously (it didn't), and says local leaders should continue pushing from there. He says Equality Florida and other organizations are forming a coalition to lobby leaders in Tallahassee on new gun control measures, including background checks and an assault weapons ban. “This crap about ‘it’s not the guns, it’s the people,’ if the guns weren’t available, the people wouldn’t be able to use them,” Shelin says. “It’s as simple as that.”
Trump supporter Christian Ziegler (on R) Republican state committeeman from Sarasota County and a delegate to the Republican National Convention chimes in. Local gun rights supporters feel further regulations are a misguided approach. “This is both silly and incredibly dangerous," says Christian Ziegler, state committeeman for the Republican Party of Sarasota. "The Sarasota City Commission, with no jurisdiction over our state or federal gun laws, is overreaching their power to attack all of our Second Amendment rights in order to pander to their liberal base who put them in power by controlling the off-cycle, low turnout elections. I would suggest that the City Commission focus on fixing issues that they are responsible for such as finding out why businesses, jobs and events that benefit the local economy are shutting down and/or leaving the city limits." Barwin's left wing liberal proposal on enhanced gun control failed.
