DiSanto and Nelson Lobby Governor to Sign Concealed-Pistol Permit Repeal

Senator Stace Nelson and Representative Lynne DiSanto found time yesterday to troop 2,000-some letters from gun owners into the Governor’s office to urge him to sign House Bill 1072, DiSanto’s measure to repeal the permit requirement for concealed pistols.

I would think, given that she trains models, that Rep. DiSanto would do better on live video.

Governor Daugaard has said he will veto HB 1072.

    a day after the Second Amendment-loving woman boasted about her tot’s shooting skills.

    The Florida boy found the loaded weapon in mom Jamie Gilt’s car Tuesday and shot her as they cruised down a Putnam County road, officials said. The 31-year-old mother survived the mid-drive attack and is in stable condition.

    “Even my 4 year old gets jacked up to target shoot with the .22,” Gilt wrote on Facebook Monday during a fiery online debate about guns as a means of self-defense. The Jacksonville mom maintained she has the right to shoot anyone who threatens her and her family — and she’s teaching her kids to do the same.

    FLORIDA MOM WHOSE 4-YEAR-OLD SON ACCIDENTALLY SHOT HER IN BACK WILL ‘KEEP HER GUNS’

    On top of her personal account, the vocal gun activist runs “Jamie Gilt for Gun Sense,” a Facebook page dedicated to spouting her passionate pro-gun opinions.

    Gilt, also an avid horseback rider, was driving to pick up a pony when she was shot Tuesday, CBS 47 reported.

    Officials said her son in the backseat fired a .45 caliber handgun into the back of the driver’s seat. The bullet pierced through the cushion and struck the mom in the back.

    It’s not clear how the tot got his hands on the loaded weapon or where it was stored in the vehicle.

    Deputies spotted Gilt’s truck and horse trailer stopped in the middle of the road. They found her in the front seat with a bullet wound, and rushed her to UF Health in Gainesville, about 40 miles west of Putnam.

    The 4-year-old was not injured. He is now in the care of other family members, and the Department of Children and Families is investigating the case, officials said. Detectives are now trying to determine exactly how the boy got a hold of the gun.

    He will not face charges.

    “This is definitely not a criminal event. This is an accidental shooting,” Capt. Joseph Wells of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office said.

    The gun was legally owned by Gilt, officials said in a Wednesday statement. The mom has not been charged, but the investigation is ongoing.

    “Florida Statute makes it a misdemeanor for a person to store or leave, on a premise under his or her control, a loaded firearm in such a manner that it is likely a child can gain access to the firearm,” officials said in the statement, adding that they will not file any charges before they get a chance to speak with the victim.

    The Daily News reached out to Putnam County deputies for further comment, but they did not immediately respond.

    Gilt had previously written on social media about her defense of guns.

    “My right to protect my child with my gun trumps your fear of my gun,” she declared in a Feb. 13 post.

     She voiced similar pro-gun positions and professed support for presidential hopeful Ted Cruz on her personal Facebook page.

    The sharp-shooting mom plastered the page with glamour shots of herself holding a long gun — and one smiling picture even showed her holding a small child in one arm and a rifle in the other.

    She voiced similar pro-gun positions and professed support for Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz on her personal Facebook page.

    One post showed a picture of happy children holding hands captioned, “Other people’s kids.” Underneath it, a photo of barbaric warriors battling with blades and maces was titled, “My kids.”

    The Daily News could not immediately reach any of Gilt’s family members for comment.

    A woman who answered a phone number listed for Gilt refused to answer any questions and called the shooting a “personal matter.”

  3. Unfortunately, leslie, the ammosexuals just don’t get upset by needless bloody gun deaths involving children, they just rally for more guns.

  4. It’s like smoking, cigarettes (guns) can kill but it isn’t going to happen to you or your family so get me some more cigarettes(guns)

    I spoke to our sheriff about This. He was so against it, since our police officers must check their guns at the door when they visit the capital, but anyone can go in with a gun. What idiotic thinking is this

    FORMER FELON WITH CONCEALED PISTOL SAVES TROOPER’S LIFE.

    “Thank you, because I don’t know if my trooper would be alive today without your assistance,” DPS Col. Frank Milstead told the gun-weilding passerby, telling KNXV-TV that the good Samaritan “absolutely” saved the trooper’s life.

  7. mike from iowa

    Been my experience when gun nuts tell a story about someone supposedly saving someone else with a gun they almost always use the word “absolutely?”

    I am absolutely convinced I don’t believe most of them stories. Usually because there are a few small details missing.

  8. So to check, Barry, from that anecdote, you derive the policy position that former felons ought to be allowed to carry concealed weapons without a permit everywhere, including the State Capitol and county courthouses?

  9. (69 felons granted “relief” under an NRA-backed federal gun-rights-restoration policy from 1985 to 1992 were rearrested for serious crimes. What ever happened to consequences? If carrying a gun around town is so important to you, keep your nose clean.)

    Cory,
    I know it is a “Liberal” ideal, that someone who has been convicted of a Felony and paid their price to Society, should have a clearly described avenue to earn ALL of their Rights back, including the Right to Vote and the Right to defend their own life, but this “Most Liberal” Blog needs to hear it once again.

    You can Hyperbo-LIE, be overly dramatic and suggest that ALL Felons are violent, crazed, “others”, but you don’t change the Facts. If Society dictates through Law that Felons can’t work or live outside, then we might as well make all Felony charges carry life terms, because that’s how it often ends up, and not always for the violent Felon.

    So to answer the insipid question:
    Yes, Felons, even violent Felons, should have a checklist of steps to gain each, and every one of their Rights back, including the Right to Arms. Because Bobby Unser illegally used a snowmobile in an emergency, he should never again be allowed to own a gun? How is that Justice?

    Gee, that sounds pretty bad Cory. Almost 10 per year out of how many? How many? How many? A woefully incomplete citation. …and what is, the AVERAGE recidivism rate in the U.S.?

    On one side, you claim we should have better Laws and ways to deal with criminals and help them become productive citizens, then you use failures of the criminal justice system that makes it impossible for Felons to find work or housing and finally end up back working for Prison Industries, to criticize the NRA for trying to do something.

    I suggest you educate yourself on Felons and Laws in this Country before you judge too harshly, as you are a Felon, committing crimes every day, only you may not know it. …but for the Grace of God, go you.

    One might argue that these Laws are rarely enforced, but it doesn’t seem that way to Bobby Unser, and besides, that argument is a distraction or minimization, not a valid point. They are on the Books, at the ready, and the following list is no where near complete.

    Wingnuts in Virginia had a screaming conniption that the guv wanted to allow felons to vote, they believe all felons would vote Democratic.

  13. mike from iowa

    But, Barry, you and I and everyone else knows the real reason wingnuts don’t want felon’s to have the right to vote. The vast majority are blacks and they tend to vote for Democrats, innit?
