The people of Florida have an exceptional chance to exercise their true democratic rights by directly changing the fundamental law of the state by placing the question of changing the law on the November 2020 ballot and voting for it. Very few states give their residents a chance to change the laws of the stat on their own. So, this is a true exercise in democracy. The Florida Constitution is the highest and most superior law of the state. The Governor, legislature and the courts must follow and implement the laws adopted by the people and included in the Constitution. The Constitution of the State of Florida definitely needs to be amended specifically in relation to gun control. STOP THE KILLING Committee was established to lead the petition drive to change the Florida Constitution to ban the possession of military-style weapons by private individuals.
We will need approximately 1 million signed petitions by February 1, 2020. Then we will need to have 60% of the votes cast in the 2020 election to win – to Stop The Killing ! Join us! Put democracy in action! Make the people’s law!
