USA Today Reports, in what looks like the Mayor of Tampa trying to set up Governor Scott the bomb. I don’t even think Scott has the power to ban firearms unilaterally, does he? Either way, his response is appreciated:
“An absolute ban on possession in an entire neighborhoods and regions would surely violate the 2nd Amendment,” Scott wrote to Buckhorn.
“It is unclear how disarming law-abiding citizens would better protect them from the dangers and threats posed by those who would flout the law. It is at just such times that the constitutional right to self-defense is most precious and must be protected from government overreach,” Scott said in his letter.
Clearly people’s rights are not of concern for the Mayor of Tampa, so much as scoring cheap political points in an attempt to make something that is not a contentious issue a contentious issue.
