Ed.“Republican” governors who learned all they
know about politics from John McCain; that is, pretend to be a conservative, lie
like a dollar watch to the voters and then govern like the liberal Democrat you

The post-Parkland gun control push may have netted zero
action in Congress but it has certainly found takers in one of the most
unlikely of places—five Republican Governors who have surrendered ground on gun
control or made clear their intentions to do so.
Florida Governor Rick Scott
The state-level slide
toward gun control began in Florida, where Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed a $400
million gun control bill into law. Breitbart News reported
that the gun controls included firearm confiscation orders, waiting period for
long gun purchases, and an increase in minimum purchase age from 18 to 21.
The Los Angeles
Timesreported that the measure Rick Scott signed also banned
bump stocks, which were not even used in the Parkland school shooting.
On April 12, 2018,
Vermont Gov. Phil Scott (R) signed
a massive body of gun controls into law. Those controls included a ban on
private gun sales and bump stocks, although neither private gun sales nor bump
stocks were contributors to the Parkland attack.
Phil Scott’s gun
controls also bar law-abiding citizens from owning “high capacity” magazines.
Scott was able to win the gubernatorial race by proclaiming he saw no need for
more gun control in the state of Vermont. On June 22, 2016, he told Vermont Public Radio, “I don’t believe that we
need more gun restrictions in Vermont at this time. I think we should enforce
the ones we have. I think we should focus more on safety and gun education, but

On April 24, 2018,
Huffington Post reported that Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) signed a bill
which bans bump stocks and implements a law to allow police to confiscate
firearms. The firearm confiscation law is described as a “red flag” law.
Scott is a GREAT judge of character as he buddies up with Broward Sheriff Israel
On May 14, 2018,
Breitbart News reported
that Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) proposed confiscation laws for his state, as well as
a tripling of the 24-hour waiting period on gun purchases. Rauner wants
law-abiding citizens to wait 72 hours before being allowed to pick up their
guns at the store and take them home.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary
Fallin (R) had the opportunity to roll back gun controls and regulations via
permitless carry legislation that reached her desk last week. Instead she vetoed
the measure, thereby preserving the requirement that law-abiding citizens
obtain permission from their state government before being allowed to exercise
rights that “shall not be infringed.”
director Chris Cox responded to Fallin’s veto by saying,
“Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed this important piece of self-defense legislation. …
Make no mistake, this temporary setback will be rectified when Oklahoma
residents elect a new, and genuinely pro-Second Amendment governor.”
