The rights of churches are enshrined in the First Amendment. They are supposed to be left alone to enjoy their congregants, their property, and their freedom of choice. Yet, overwhelmingly Democrats in the Florida House and Florida Senate are continuing to vote against restoring their private property rights, their Second Amendment rights, their right to self-defense/defense of others and their right to secure their property and provide security for their congregants and guests.
Below is the report of action on pro-gun bills this week:
