Florida state lawmakers raise eyebrows as they respond to Biden’s comments on the Texas school shootings

A local lawmaker is raising eyebrows over his reaction to the president’s comments following the shooting at a Texas elementary school.

During his prime-time speech, President Joe Biden asked when the nation would take a stand against the gun lobby.

State Assemblyman Randy Fine of Brevard County tweeted the following message to the President: “Try to take up arms and you will learn why the Second Amendment was written in the first place.”

Channel 9 caught up with Fine in Tallahassee. Fine said the tweet was not a threat.

“I was pretty disgusted that the President politicized last night and the Democrats came out and said ‘F’ Republicans and blamed Republicans for it,” Fine said.
