Senators Were Sent Tar, Feathers And Poop Emojis After Controversial Gun Bill

This week, Florida senators passed a bill that raised the age to buy a firearm from 18 to 21 and imposed a minimum three-day waiting period on gun purchases.

There has been a significant backlash to the bill, and some people have gone to the extent of sending senators jars of tar and feathers. This, of course, is a reference to how mobs will many times capture people and cover them with tar and feathers, a form of humiliation that sometimes turns to torture. This has been a method that has been used in many cultures throughout history.

Sen. René García, one of the supporters of the bill received one of the packages and later told reporters that, “They are tiny jars full of feathers with poop emojis in them.”

The packages had a note attached that said, “From the Children of Bradford County,” on one side, and “The tar and feather enemy of freedom award,” on the other. The Jars were also labeled with poop emojis on the lid.

Senate President Bill Galvano, the sponsor of the bill said that he and many other senators received the same package.

“It is related. Several of us received a jar of tar and feathers in our offices as a message of opposition to the bill,” Galvano said.

According to Katie Betta, a spokeswoman for Senate President Joe Negron, at least a dozen other senators received the jars, even a few who voted against the bill. Senator Lauren Book also received one of the packages and suspected that a “man with tattoos” made the delivery. According to her staff, the man said “There’s an award for you, violating the second amendment,” before leaving the office.

The sender of the packages was a mystery until Thursday, when local Libertarian candidate Ryan Ramsey, who is running for the House District 19 seat, announced that he was responsible for the deliveries.

Ramsey said that the jars were made by local children who he fears may be “the first generation to grow up in Florida after the death of the Second Amendment, due to the betrayal of Florida’s gun owners by the GOP.”

“The Bill of Rights is non-negotiable. They deserved the awards. Every Republican in the Florida House that votes for this bill will earn one too… and their names will be known to Florida voters in November,” Ramsey said.

This bill is not to be confused with the federal gun ban that we reported on last week, which would effectively ban semi-automatic weapons throughout the entire country.

In the fine print of the legislation, 205 weapons are specifically named for the ban, including the AK-47 and AR-15.
