Anti-Gun Dem To Oversee CCW Program
A one-time South Florida Congressional candidate who is well known for her anti-gun stance has been appointed to oversee Florida’s concealed weapon license program.
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and Commissioner Nicole “Nikki” Fried, who happens to be a Democrat, selected Mary Barzee Flores to be Deputy Commissioner for Consumer Affairs.
“I’m honored to join an administration focused on protecting consumer rights and the interests, safety, and security of all Floridians,” stated Barzee Flores.
In the past Barzee Flores has made comments such as “The NRA won’t be able to buy me and I’ll make sure that Congress listens to the American people and mandates universal background checks, closes dangerous loopholes and reinstates the federal assault weapons ban.”
Data indicated that there were over 2.1 million carry licenses in circulation as of the end of 2018 most of which were for concealed weapons.
“Despite all the bluster about their personal political positions, the fact remains, Commissioner Fried and Deputy Commissioner Barzee Flores must uphold the Constitution and the law, and can’t use their personal political philosophies to re-tool the licensing program,” Marion Hammer, former NRA president and the state’s primary pro-gun lobbyist stated.
