We Need More Legislators Like Florida State Representative Bob Rommel

Recently, I received an email from my favorite Southwest Florida indoor gun range, The Alamo in Naples, inviting me to support a letter writing campaign to use Constitutional State Sovereignty to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights. 

For those who are unfamiliar with the Constitutional State Sovereignty movement to protect the Second Bob RommelAmendment, ten states (and counting) have passed laws to tell the federal government that any federal infringement of our 2nd Amendment rights is NULL and VOID in their state. 

In Florida, the Florida Citizens Alliance (FLCA) has proposed legislation to do the same and are working very hard to get Florida Legislators to act aggressively to protect our 2nd Amendment rights. 

SWFLCA (SW Florida Citizens Alliance), a chapter of FLCA is working with eleven different grassroots organizations in Southwest Florida who champion state sovereignty in a campaign they call “The Rebirth of Liberty in Florida.” 

Petitions like this arrive in my inbox pretty regularly and I always support them when they come from groups and individuals, like the Alamo, that I know and trust, so I sent an email to my newly elected Florida state Representative, Rep. Robert Rommel, supporting the petition and asking him to do the same. 

Frankly, I didn’t expect a response, or if I got one at all I figured it would be an autoresponder generically telling me my “valuable opinion” would be taken into consideration. 

So, I was blown away when I received the following email reply in less than 24 hours:

Subject: Thank you for your email regarding our Second Amendment rights 

Thank you so much for your email concerning our Second Amendment rights and for your passion on this critical issue.  I, too, am totally alarmed by the federal government’s troublesome overreach into our lives, and most especially by attempts to curtail our God-given right to protect ourselves and our families.  I am now, have always been, and will always be, a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment.  I myself have a concealed permit and earned an A rating from the NRA. (emphasis added) 

One of the most important reasons I ran for the Florida House is that I strongly believe in the principles of limited government and feel that our leaders have completely failed us in this respect.  I will always stand for the principles of freedom, liberty, and limited government, and promise that my record in office will reflect my deeply held beliefs.  In Tallahassee, I will stand as a true conservative, and will always vote to uphold our Second Amendment rights. (emphasis added) 

Thank you again for your email.  Should you have any other concerns, or wish to meet with me personally, please do not hesitate to call me at my district office in Naples at (239) 417-****. 

Warm regards, 
Bob Rommel 

Lest you think Rep. Rommel is a personal friend or knew his response was going to one of the top conservative websites in the country, I can assure that is not the case. Being wrapped-up in the national campaign this year I didn’t have the opportunity to meet Rep. Rommel prior to the election – but I sure plan to make him a friend now. 

By the way, as part of the promotion of this great campaign to use Constitutional State Sovereignty to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights the Alamo indoor range was offering participants a chance to win 500 rounds of ammo and sent a link to a video of KrisAnne Hall (Constitutional Attorney, Author, Speaker, Radio Host) who was in Naples, FL recently, presenting “Saving our Second Amendment: State Sovereignty,” explaining how constitutional state sovereignty is our ONLY and LAST CHANCE to save our 2nd Amendment.
