Following the shooting in Florida Democrats have started up their usual rush to pass gun control.
Across the country they are pushing for massive gun control, including “assault weapons” bans.
But in the midst of the push, Democrats just got the worst news of the year.
Anti-gun Democrats think that after the Florida shooting gun rights supporters have given up.
They believe their calls for gun control are convincing those on the pro-gun side to join them.
But the attendance at the Florida Gun Show at the Florida Fairgrounds over the weekend prove them dead wrong.
The Florida Gun Show had record attendance, with nearly 7,000 people attending on Saturday.
This is the last thing Democrats wanted to happen.
As reported by Breitbart:
“The Florida Gun Show witnessed record attendance Saturday at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
The record attendance comes as Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) push more gun control for gun shows. Other Democrats, like Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), are pushing an “assault weapons” ban, a bump stock ban, and universal background checks, among other controls.
The public response to the gun control push was a record turnout at the Florida Gun Show.
WTSP reports “almost 7,000” people attended the show Saturday, and they expected even more people to attend on Sunday.
Gun show manager George Fernandez said he has never seen crowds so big. And he quickly admitted, “Some of the people attending are afraid that future legislation will impact their gun ownership rights.”
Gun shows are a great way to gauge opinions on gun control.
There is no place in the country that is more pro-gun than a gun show.
And the Florida Gun Show is one of the biggest gun shows in the country, with hundreds of guns available for sale.
WTSP reporter Shannon Valladolid snapped this video of the massive crowd:

The fact that this occurred in Florida shows just how little the media’s anti-gun push is affecting the opinion of pro-gun Americans.
If they can’t convince pro-gun supporters in Florida, where the recent shooting occurred, they are going to have a tough time doing it nationwide.
This isn’t the only bad news that has been dropped on anti-gun Democrats in the past few weeks.
An attempt to pass an “assault weapons” ban in Florida was shut down before it could even get a vote on the floor of the Florida House.
Democrats clearly aren’t doing well with their latest gun control push.
Do you think the Democrats are going to succeed in passing gun control?
