Florida Ag Commissioner Nikki Fried, who is running against Ron DeSantis for Governor in 2022, stripped 22 citizens of their concealed carry permits.
The reason? They peacefully demonstrated in D.C. on January 6, 2021.
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried boasted on Tuesday that she has used her powers to suspend the legal concealed carry permits of 22 Florida citizens who attended the Trump rally and protested for election integrity at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Some Florida residents were confused as how an Ag Commissioner has the authority to revoke concealed carry permits in the first place. Ironically, the loophole that allows Fried to curtail gun rights was lobbied for and pushed through the state legislature by the National Rifle association…
Fried, a far-left career lawyer, narrowly won the race for Ag Commissioner in 2018 by less than 7,000 votes. Since assuming her position, she has worked to restrict gun rights, crafted anti-concealed carry legislation, and worked with radical anti-Second Amendment group Everytown for Gun Safety to make June 4 “Gun Violence Awareness Day in the State of Florida.”
