Why The Florida Gun Show Had a Record Attendance

Thousands of gun enthusiasts flocked to the Florida State Fairgrounds for the Florida Gun Show event.
Organizers say they had a record number of people attend the event on Saturday, almost 7,000, and expect more Sunday.
Manager for the Florida Gun Show, George Fernandez, says they’ve never seen such a big crowd.
The company canceled the show in Fort Lauderdale next month after the Mayor asked them to show respect to the victims of the Stoneman Douglas shooting earlier this month.
With the heated debate over gun control staying front and center, Fernandez expressed concerns over proposed gun laws possibly restricting gun owners.
“Some of the people attending are afraid that future legislation will impact their gun ownership rights,” he says.
Florida lawmakers like Senator Bill Nelson want stricter laws to fix the so-called “Gun show loophole” which allows people to buy a gun at one of these events without getting a background check.
Not only that, Nelson is also calling for a ban on assault weapons, saying murders were down after they were banned back in 1994.
“Before that law, they were high and after that law, when the NRA killed the law in 2004, the number of deaths as a result of assault weapons has grown up like a rocket taking off,” he says.
Fernandez disagrees with both restrictions.
95% of the vendors at this weekend’s show, he says, are required by law to run background checks since they are licensed dealers.
However, the other 5% of vendors are private citizens, which means they can sell a gun with no background check required.
But Fernandez says tightening the “loophole” still wouldn’t have stopped the massacre at Stoneman Douglas.
19-year-old Nikolas Cruz passed a background check before purchasing a semiautomatic AR 15-style rifle.
“This was a mental health issue. This is someone who should have been identified from the beginning by law enforcement,” says Fernandez.
As any American with any common sense whatsoever will tell you, the purpose of “Gun Control” IS control.
The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, regarding the right of Americans to bear arms, was more than just a statement written in a document long ago by our Founding Fathers.
It was an admonition.
By now, gentle readers, I hope that you have taken stock of the fact that every single time there is a mass murder in our Sovereign Nation, before the smoke even clears, Democrat Pundits, both professional and amateur, start drooling from their pursed lips in an ecstatic frenzy to be the first to call for “Gun Control”.
It is not, regardless of what they say repeatedly when these tragedies happen, “for the children”.
If Liberal Democrats were so concerned about America’s children, America would not be witnessing the yanking of children from their mothers’ wombs at the rate of 1,000,000 abortions every year.
Make no mistake. Gun control is no more a Democratic Mantra spoken out of concern for the welfare of Americans than Nancy Pelosi is in full control of her mental faculties.
Vladimir Lenin, the Communist Leader of the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks during the Russian Revolution, stated that
“One man with a gun can control 100 men without one.”
Just as during the Russian Revolution, our modern-day Bolsheviks and Mensheviks, whom we call Millenials and Progressives, seem to blindly follow as one the notion that more control somehow means more freedom.
Little do those high schoolers who are being “sponsored” to march for Gun Control realize that they are being led over a cliff like the herd of lemmings which my generation used to watch in school in those Walt Disney True Life Adventure Movies.
Just as Lenin played upon his followers’ emotions, so are the Democrats using these young people for their own political purposes
Which brings me back to the article I posted above.
The fact that Floridians came to the gun show in record numbers does not surprise me at all.
Former President Barack Hussein Obama, when pushing his plans for Gun Control, infamously said that as Americans we were going to have to sacrifice a little freedom for security.
The Russian people under Communist Rule were “secure”. Their leaders in the Politboro were rich.
President Ronald Reagan famously asked
“How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”
The “sponsors” of the marches of Florida Schoolchildren advocating Gun Control have read Marx and Lenin.
Those Americans who attended the Florida Gun Show UNDERSTAND Marx and Lenin.
