SOUTHERN HERITAGE GROUP OPPOSES SCOTT'S GUN PLAN Joins Citizen Coalition for 2nd Amendment

Tallahassee - Save Southern Heritage Florida ("SSH FL") goes on record today opposing Governor Rick Scott's plan to abridge Floridan's rights under the United States Constitution. Save Southern Heritage Florida has joined a coalition of groups bringing resources to bear to oppose those seeking to exploit the tragedy in Broward County designed to whittle away at our Southern and American rights. "Southerners understand that the right to self-defense is a basic right granted by God and codified by our Nation's founders in the Constitution and so we are opposed to any abridgment of this, or any other God given right" said David McCallister, SSH FL spokesman. SSH FL members have noted shocking parallels between the Charleston shooting and its aftermath to the Parkland shooting and its aftermath. "We've seen this movie before. Take a deranged killer, mix with innocent, sympathetic victims, blame and an inanimate object - in this case a firearm, in that case, a flag - and then exploit the tragedy to ban that inanimate object" McCallister said. South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley caved in to the radical left that exploited the tragic shooting just as Florida Governor Rick Scott appears to be doing now. Many of the Florida legislators that are supporting bills to infringe on Floridian's gun rights are the same legislators that are willing to remove war memorials and other observances from the civic landscape, therein curtailing free speech in the process. "Republicans are hopping into bed with the radical left for fear of being called 'racist' just like they have done on the Edmund Kirby Smith memorial in Statuary Hall after the Charleston tragedy" McCallister added. "If they don't get some backbone and stand their ground, they will surely lose seats in the mid-term election - but perhaps its time to drain the swamp in Tallahassee" he added. "Governor Scott was wrong about the Florida Veterans Hall of Fame and he is wrong on Gun Control" McCallister added. "Jeb Bush learned you don't mess with our history and heritage and Rick Scott needs to learn the same lesson before he moves up" McCallister concluded. The coalition has a multi-faceted campaign planned that will seek to push back on the proposed gun reform plan that would limit rights of young adults and make it harder for law abiding citizens to obtain firearms in Florida.

SAVE SOUTHERN HERITAGE Inc. is not for profit corporation that educates & advocates on behalf of Southern Heritage & History. It was started in 2015 in response to the knee-jerk Anti-Southern institutionalized bullying and “erase-ism” levied against the people of South Carolina by Governor Nikki Haley, after she broke all previous agreements about how South Carolina’s historical veterans and their symbols should be treated and respected. SSH FL does not condone racism and as such we do not support any group or person that does. We respect the rights and privileges of all as bestowed on them by their creator and expect those in our association to respect and treat others as they themselves would wish to be treated. The Florida branch was activated in mid-January 2016, in response to three initiatives in the Florida Legislature that are part of a hate campaign led by Anti-American extremists, who refuse to respect the various cultures that make up the fabric of Florida’s society. Since that time, it has grown in membership and has been active in Heritage battles throughout Florida and actively involved in voter education resulting in wins for pro-heritage candidates.
