In short, FLGR is nothing but a sock puppet — a fundraising organization that (except for some paperwork formalities) has no presence in Florida except for a shell game of addresses for service of legal documents and to rake in contributions.
Email keeps flooding Florida gun owners from an entity calling itself “Florida Gun Rights” (FLGR) — but it is NOT coming from a grassroots group in Florida. Their corporate documents clearly show their principal place of business is Colorado.
Calling itself “Florida’s Only No Compromise Gun Lobby,” FLGR frequently attacks NRA and Unified Sportsmen Of Florida (USF) but FLGR doesn’t have a clue what is going on in Florida. FLGR has no real presence in Florida. They merely have contracted with a corporate services firm to provide a Florida address to receive legal process.
When they ask you to send them money to fund their imaginary operation, they use a Tallahassee, Florida, address for you to mail your checks. But FLGR’s address is actually a drop box in a UPS Store in a strip mall in Tallahassee where UPS employees box up their customer’s mail and ship it off to their customer’s real address somewhere else.
Further, FLGR has no registered lobbyist in Florida, which means either it’s not really lobbying, or that it is lobbying illegally. Additionally, FLGR’s ‘state director’ apparently lives in Texas. We can find no evidence that he is ever in Florida.
