Flordia – "" target=
target="_blank">I was raped on campus at Florida State
. He had a knife and I had pepper spray.  You
can read how well that worked for me.  Campus carry is
important to me; it is personal for me.  It is time for
Florida Republicans to let us defend ourselves.

I never thought I would have to write this letter.

I thought that after the amazing wins the Republican party
gained this past election on a local, state, and national level,
that our constitutional rights would not only be protected but we
would revise all the laws that seek to unreasonably restrict those
rights especially those that pertain to the second amendment.

Yet here we are. I am writing this only days before legislative
session starts officially on March 7th in Florida and
the only thing that I have seen come out dealing with gun rights
are sloppy bills from supposedly pro-gun Senators and Congressmen
and a deep state of apathy and division within the Republican Party
in measuring how they will deal with those bills.

Well I am done. I am sick and tired of waiting for Florida
Republicans to get themselves together and pass bills that would
restore our second amendment rights.

We should be able to carry in the supposedly gun free zones for
which so many innocent, law abiding citizens, including myself,
have fallen victim to criminals who did not care about the law.

I am tired of dealing with RINOs—Republicans In Name Only—who do
not care about conservative principles, who do not care about the
constitution, and who only care about whether or not they can
remain in power for a little while longer.

All I get from Republican leadership and politicians and their
assistants are “I’m so sorry” or “we support you and
what your doing
” but I don’t see their support measuring into
action and I don’t want their half-hearted apologies.

I want to be able to protect myself on campus the way I choose.
I want other women to feel empowered to make that choice. Because
if even just one woman is able to protect herself from facing the
same fate that I faced, then everything would be worth it.

And if the Republican Party, it’s politicians, and the members
of it can’t see why that is so incredibly important, then this
party is dying. There is no point in winning elections if we don’t
do anything with those wins! It is time to hear campus carry in
committees, vote for it in those committees, vote for it on the
respective floors of both chambers, and send that bill to Governor
Rick Scott to sign into law. No more excuses.

To the Florida Republican party, I think it’s time to remind you
what happens to RINOs. RINOs like ""

, former chair of the
Senate Judiciary committee and the man who single handedly blocked
pro-gun bills last year, who lost his reelection in the Senate
despite spending an inordinate amount more money than his

To all Floridians reading this: We are holding a March for
Campus Carry on March 11th, 2017 at 12 pm at the Florida
Capitol. ""
target="_blank">If you can make it, we’ll see you

It’s time to aim our metaphorical cross-hairs and start hunting
RINO’s and taking back our party—putting conservative principles,
like the right to self-defense, back in priority. Remind your
legislators with letters and phone calls to their state and
district offices to vote in favor of second amendment legislation.
If they don’t vote for your rights this session, don’t vote for
them when they are up for reelection.

Remember, it’s always open season for RINOs.
