Mike Hill Looks to Get Back to the Florida House By Slamming Gun Control Measures

April 11, 2018 - 9:00pm

Looking to make a political comeback and reclaim a seat in the Florida House, conservative Mike Hill came out swinging against gun control measures passed by the GOP controlled Legislature in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting.

Running in the Republican primary to replace outgoing state Rep. Clay Ingram to represent parts of Escambia County, Hill stressed his opposition to legislation passed in Tallahassee raising the minimum age to purchase guns from 18 to 21, sets up a three-day waiting period for buying rifles and bans bump stocks.  

"Florida recently passed restrictive gun laws that were enacted by emotional mob rule resulting from an intellectually dishonest debate," Hill said. “It was dishonest because it purports to prevent future murders through legislation, something that God Himself hasn't achieved. It was mob rule because our legislators refused to debate facts over emotions.”

Despite Gov. Rick Scott signing the bill into law and the GOP controlling both chambers of the Legislature, Hill went after the Democrats on the issue. 

"In 2017, there were 15 students killed by gunfire on public school grounds and Democrats used this to justify the theft of our constitutional rights in their legislative agendas,” Hill said. "There is one statistic which truly demonstrates the hypocrisy of this legislation: 128 people are killed annually by a school transportation vehicle. Will the new Democrat Party now call for bus-free zones?"

An Air Force veteran who led the Northwest Florida Tea Party, Hill was elected to the Florida House in a special election in 2013. Hill ran for a state Senate seat in 2016 but lost to Doug Broxson in the primary. 

Since then, Hill moved slightly to the west to run for District 1 instead of his old District 2 House seat. He faces Rebekah Bydlak in the Republican primary.

Great! Just found out he is runing in my district.Clay Ingram is a great representative and he will be missed.Looking forward to voteing for Mike Hill this year! This gun bill needs to be repealed.

Ingram endorsed Bydlak not Hill.

this wing nut has zero chance... Notice the wing nut doesn't even mention the worst part of the deal passed by the legislature and signed into law by your criminal governor. That is the choice to arm teachers (terrible idea) and put SRO's in all schools, but they only paid for half the training and no extra SRO's. Oh, and by the way, all that went into their fuzzy math calculations for record school funding. HA! Jokes on all you idiots that voted for them. Choose better next time fools...

This man is standing for our rights. As for you comment on arming teachers you are wrong. The bill states they will arm counselors principls coaches and media librarians. This is also a voluntary circumstance. Plus they will go through 130 hours of training plus on going traing throughout the year. This is a good thing it has worked for 7 - 10 years in several states and in those states thete has been zero violent attacks on any school children. The funding is partial 50 - 50 state federal. The SROs are being issued through the highway patrol.

Mike Hill represents God, family, and country, & 2A, PERIOD,,,,If you think thats a wingnut, I seriously question your mentality. Mike Hill is the best person for the Job, PERIOD!

Obviously an out of state leftist who wouldn't be happy with anything done by that didn't follow his Manifesto letter for letter. I'm sure things are going so much better in California or New York or Illinois or wherever else you're from.

This is where we are in politics.......nasty name calling, nothing civil and certainly no solution. Mike Hill is a man of integrity, served our nation in the military, and can't be bought by the political establishment. We need men and women of character in leadership and Mike without question meets the quality we need in political positions..
