Jeb Bush's Second Amendment Record in the Spotlight
Former Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Fla., is looking to get his conservative credentials in order before launching a presidential bid. This weekend, Bush will hope to win right-of-center support by showcasing his record on Second Amendment issues. Bush and other Republican presidential hopefuls will be speaking to the National Rifle Associations annual meeting in Nashville.
The Wall Street Journal has a piece on Bushs record on Second Amendment issues during his time as governor:
During his eight-year stretch as governor, Mr. Bush signed numerous bills extending new rights to gun owners, including those to expand protections for people permitted to carry concealed firearms. As a result, more than a million Floridians have permits to carry concealed weapons. He also approved a measure allowing Florida to extend its protections to residents of other states who visit the Sunshine State.
Hes probably more conservative on guns than anybody in that race, said Bill Bunting, a prominent gun-rights activist and a GOP committeeman with the state party. Hes got a perfect track record.
