Allison will be a part of the show's "Action Radio" program, in which listeners take up bills and hammer out legislative proposals to send to state and national lawmakers. 

Allison has covered the National Rifle Association, gun issues and Florida gun groups for SSN since 2013.

From Stand Your Ground to campus carry, gun issues have fired up state lawmakers in 2017, proving again this year to be one of the hottest issues moving through the Capitol. 

Last week, Sen. Anitere Flores, R-Miami, caused a commotion when she told pro-gun Sen. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, that she would not be voting in favor of the majority of his gun proposals this year, sending Steube's bills to the legislative boneyard. 

Listen to Allison beginning at 8 a.m. CST Monday morning. 


I'm on a campus now and I would NOT want to see some of these clowns here carrying a gun. NOT safe, especially at a frat party or just a party with other students getting drunk and then arguing. Nope, not for me, I agree with others who are against this. NO GUNS ON CAMPUS!

I too am a retired LEO (28years) and I am quite OPPOSED to campus and airport carry laws. I could live with carrying in an airport but NOT in schools! The argument 'for' carrying from an alleged retired cop absolutely stuns me. That a retired LEO would favor such a law is just wrong. With all those years behind him, perhaps it's better he's in retirement rather than still policing wherever he served, shooting it up and who knows who. VOTE NO ON CAMPUS CARRY!!!

I am a retired law enforcement officer(28 years) and I am in full support for campus carry and airport carry bills because I know from my experience and training that criminals do not attack law abiding citizens if criminals know that citizens have the tool to defend themselves. Look at Chicago and DC, most murders are drug or gang related. The states that you cannot get concealed carry permit because self defense is not considered a good enough reason the criminals are robbing, raping at will and doing what ever they want

Thank you Sunshine State News for this announcement. Since my show is brand new, this session we are only going to talk about the bills. But next year, "action radio" will be filing bills.
