With all of the nasty tactics that Democrats have employed in their efforts to undermine Trump’s presidency, we knew that the midterm elections were going to be rife with fraud. Now, incidences of voter fraud have been popping up all over the country. But the biggest and most covered of the recounts happened in Florida. Now, we can’t help but ask the question, “Is Florida the most corrupt state in the union or what?”
The Democrats are accused of cheating and the evidence of their wrongdoing is pretty damned clear. But the question is why would Democrats push so desperately to hold ground in this one county that they would be willing to break the law?
The answer is that if they can keep Florida’s Agricultural Commissioner’s office blue, they will be able to hold a lot of ground on the gun control debate. That’s because Florida’s Agricultural Commissioner regulates carry permits. So if the Dems can hold this office, they can decide who gets to carry firearms and who does not.
That explains why Democrats demanded illegal aliens votes count. It explains why a whole bunch of boxes full of Democrat votes are showing up. It explains why every recount that has been done by the Dems turned out to reveal all pro-democrat votes. And it explains why they are willing to flout federal voting regulations by refusing to turn in all of the vote counts on time.
The Tampa Bay Times wrote, “If it seems unusual for Florida’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to handle concealed weapons permits, that’s because it is unusual – nearly every other state gives the job to police or court.”
The article continued, “The NRA had lawmakers quietly move the Division of Licensing, which handles the concealed weapons permit program, from the Florida Department of State to the state’s Department of Agriculture in 2002, so that the program was answerable to an elected official…”
“To get a permit to carry a concealed weapon in Broward County, for example, you had to pay a $500 fee, be interviewed by people ranging from a psychologist to county officials, and show that you had a dangerous job or had threats to your life and needed to carry a gun. Fewer than 40 people had permits.By contrast, more than 10,000 people had permits in Duval County, where the restrictions were looser.”
Now, this is where it gets weird. Broward County is the same county where the horrific high school shooting took place at Marjory Stoneman High School in Parkland. If you followed that case, you know that the local police had many opportunities to get their hands on the shooter, Nikolas Cruz. The boy had threatened neighbors and fellow students with deadly violence on numerous occasions. He killed his neighbor’s animals. He also posted images of guns and of himself posing with guns on Facebook with menacing language.
Finally, he actually posted a comment to a YouTube video stating that he intended to become a professional school shooter. The FBI and local police were alerted- but no one did anything.
During the shooting, the school security guard stayed in the parking lot and local police were exceedingly slow to respond. After the shooting, the Broward County sheriff, Scott Israel, became a very vocal advocate for stricter anti-gun laws.
Much like the Vegas shooting, this shooting almost looked like it was designed to happen. Everyone who could have prevented it chose not to. And everyone whose job it was to respond did nothing.
As a response to this shooting and others, gun ownership spiked across the country. The rates of concealed carry permits have increased dramatically and in many places, teachers are actively seeking out firearms training so that they can protect their students and themselves.
Across the country, people know that responsible gun owners save lives, and this year alone, there have been numerous occasions when gun owners were able to stop or prevent killings using their weapons.
The Tampa Bay Times wrote, “[Florida Democrats] are pushing the gun control trifecta: the elimination of stand your ground protections, banning ‘assault weapons’ and targeting concealed weapons permits.”
Broward County’s Agricultural Commissioner does not have the same standard of transparency that a law enforcement agency would be held to. This makes it easier for officials to make mistakes, and let would-be shooters fall through the cracks. As strange as it may seem, allowing gun crime to happen appears to be exactly what Florida Democrats want.
