Florida Congressman Supports Armed Voters at the Polls

Voters should be permitted to carry a gun to their polling place to protect themselves against intimidation, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said Thursday during a House Judiciary Committee markup session on new guns laws.

Gaetz referenced an amendment proposed by Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., during the hearing.

“I sort of like Massie’s legislation that maybe everyone who’s a voter or on their way to vote ought to have the opportunity to carry a firearm to ensure that they’re not subject to any intimidation,” Gaetz said.

The Massie amendment was proposed — but failed 24-20 — during debate on a gun law that would raise the age to legally buy a semi-automatic firearm to 21 and one to ban “straw purchases,” which are when a proxy buyer purchases a gun for someone who does not pass a background check, according to The Hill.

There are almost 12 states that ban guns at polling sites, including California and battleground states Arizona, Florida, and Georgia, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Five battleground states do not ban guns at the polls: Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin, according to The Hill.

The House Judiciary Committee moved a number of new gun bills to the House floor, where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said they will be voted on next week.

  1. Citizens should not be banned from carrying firearms anywhere. A very high percentage of shootings over the past few decades have been at Gun Free Zones. Most of these cowardly shooters would/will not target areas where anyone in the crowd may be carrying and will shoot back at them. If a shooter is stupid enough to start shooting where anyone else may be carrying, they will most likely be shot and killed before they can rack up a high body count. As long as firearms are being manufactured and as long as they exist, there is no rational reason that American citizens can’t carry one for their own protection and the protection of others.

  2. Diligent Conservative Security should be placed at all Dominion voting machine sites to make sure Republican votes are not exchanged for Democrat votes…again. Also, ALL mail in ballots need to be authenticated as REGISTERED voters! Boxes of ballots arriving after polls close will not be counted.

    • Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) supports Armed Voters at the Polls. So did Stacey Abrams (D-GA) except hers were armed member of the “New Black Panthers” and they were hostile towards anyone not voting for Democrats!

  6. One of the lead congressional democratic idiots, Jerrold Nadler of New York was easily tricked into the truth. When a Republican questioned Nadler about changing the age from 18 to 21 to purchase and own a AR-15 he asked: “Wasn’t there an article which indicated that the mind of an 18 year old isn’t fully developed?” Nadler answered, that’s very true. The Republican said then aren’t you going to change the law and raise the age of the draft from 18 to 21 also??? Nadler turned beet red and began stammering and studdering and couldn’t answer the question!
