Florida Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence Initiated June 2016 with a call for a Special Session to Ban Assault Weapons and Expand Background Checks.Dear Coalition Partners; Please pass on to your members for ACTION! Call your state legislators to request a Special Legislative Session to ban assault weapons and expand background checks.
Our elected officials must act now! Over two weeks ago, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history occurred in Orlando, Florida. The Florida Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, a growing nonpartisan coalition with over 75 organizations, is calling on Gov. Rick Scott, Senate President Andy Gardiner, and House Speaker Crisafulli to convene an urgently needed Special Legislative Session to enact measures to prevent more gun violence in our state. Our communities deserve immediate attention from our lawmakers who are tasked to keep our communities safe.
