STATEMENT: REPRESENTATIVE CARLOS GUILLERMO SMITH RESPONDS TO RICHARD CORCORAN CAVING TO THE NRA

 

Today, the Florida Democratic Party released the following statement from Representative Carlos Guillermo Smith on House Speaker and likely gubernatorial candidate Richard Corcoran's letter to the CRC:

 

"Marion Hammer has Richard Corcoran running scared. 

 

"Clearly intimidated by the NRA's mean letter about him, Speaker Corcoran just opened the door for future legislatures to fully reverse even the weakest gun safety provisions signed into law after Parkland. His 'grave concern' over making any gun control permanent, exposes what we already knew. Florida Republicans are not committed to addressing gun violence over the long term and are eager to continue implementing the NRA’s extreme agenda once the attention has shifted elsewhere. Just like Adam Putnam, Richard Corcoran is northing more than an NRA sellout.”
