Director At-Large 2, Libertarian Party of Florida
OCALA, Fla – Dennis Fields, Region 4 Representative for Florida Carry, became the latest Republican to switch his voter registration over to Libertarian Party of Florida Saturday.
Fields, an activist and an avid defender of the right to bear arms, said his party had already left him. “Republicans are now Democrats. I’m tired of the GOP screwing me without lube,” he said.
Fields’ Region 4 includes Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Putnam, Nassau, and St. Johns Counties.
Fields, along with LPF Director At-Large 2 Chris Rose II and other LPF members attended an open-carry event here this weekend. A hot topic of the event was the 2018 Republican-dominated Florida Legislature’s passing of Senate Bill 7026, which created “red flag” laws and raised the minimum age to purchase any firearm to 21.
“Dennis and I combined on all three of the protest events in Tallahassee last year,” said Rose. “The Libertarian Party of Florida was the only political Party in the State to actively oppose the passing of SB7026, from its inception in Committee, to its final passing on the Senate floor. I am overjoyed to now have Mr. Fields as a member of the LPF, and I expect we will be working a lot more together.”
