State Rep. Jim Waldman comments to Browardbeat.com earlier this week on gun control were “mostly false,” according to an Internet statewide political fact checking site.
Reporter Amy Sherman investigated the truth of Waldman’s statement for PolitiFact.
Waldman told Browardbeat.com, “You are prohibited from walking into the Capitol with a gun, but you can go after the County Commission or the School Board.”
Waldman was, to put it politely, not accurate.
Sherman found that you can enter the Capitol with a gun. You just can’t bring a weapon into the Senate or House gallery.
She also wrote that it was clear that guns are already prohibited at the governing meetings of almost every government, so you can’t “go after the County Commission or the School Board”…at least at a meeting.
Here is the PolitiFact post.
