How Could Such a Ban Impact Your Business?

The Florida Fiscal Impact Estimating Conference (FIEC) will host another workshop this Friday, August 16, at 8:30 a.m. While this meeting is a “Principals’ Workshop,” the FIEC will accept in-person comments and presentations for the “Assault Weapons Ban” petition initiative, specifically, the fiscal and economic impact it will have on Florida and businesses in Florida, including firearms manufacturers, retailers, shooting ranges, etc. In addition to in-person comments, the FIEC will continue to accept written submission of comments. The drafted proposal seeks to ban all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding 10 rounds or more. 

NSSF® has drafted a sample letter that can be customized for your use. Click here to download the sample letter. As you can see from the sample letter, the highlighted areas allow for you to insert the information relative to your specific company. Feel free to use this letter as-is, use it as a starting point, or write you own letter entirely separate of what we’ve provided. If you have a company letterhead to submit the letter on, that would be helpful as well.

Comments can be mailed, emailed, or faxed to the FIEC. That information is provided below.

We would ask that you please share any comments you submit to FIEC with NSSF as well so we can keep those in our files if needed for future use. Your comments/letters can be emailed to Trevor Santos at tsantos@nssf.org. NSSF thanks those businesses that have already submitted comments.
 
This is a time for Florida firearms manufacturers, retailers, and shooting ranges to be heard. As a firearms business in Florida, you should submit comments on the fiscal impact the proposed initiative would have on your business. Include the potential for revenue and jobs loss, and any other information relating to the fiscal impact this proposal could have on your business.
