Meet Marion Hammer.



This little troll of a woman was the chief lobbyist for the NRA in Florida for years, and was pivotal in getting Stand Your Ground and other gun-friendly laws passed by the Florida Legislature.

But it wasn't just SYG. It was the law that allowed people to have loaded guns in their car at work. It was the law that prohibited doctors from asking about guns in the household. It was the law that exempted gun ranges from environmental protection laws.

One key theme in Hammer's NRA laws? They would all make it a criminal offense if any public official ever attempted to make any effort to run contrary to the law. Yes, that's right. A criminal offense. As if being armed wasn't intimidating enough, the NRA essentially resorts to extortion of any public official who might dare to run contrary to its agenda.

This is Ms. Hammer smiling as Jeb signed SYG:



Oh, yes, one more thing. Ms. Hammer hates scrub jays.




Scrub jays being a threatened native Florida bird that lives in Florida's inland scurbs. She accused it, and I quote this with 100% accurracy, of "being lazy and having a welfare mentality." Yes, that's right. She's talking about a bird. This is the woman who is writing the laws for the Florida legislature.

2. Here's a story on a Hammer authored bill that made it a FELONY for a doctor to ask about a gun.
