DeSantis Drops Hammer on Tampa Bay Rays after Team’s Anti-Gun Rant

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has responded to Tampa Bay Rays' anti-gun rant

Florida's Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has dropped the hammer on the Tampa Bay Rays after the baseball team published an anti-gun tirade on social media.

In response to the anti-Constitution rant, DeSantis reportedly plans to veto a bill earmarking $35 million for a Tampa Bay Rays facility.

The Tampa Bay Rays joined their fellow MLB team the New York Yankees in attacking the Second Amendment on Twitter.

The governor's decision would have the DeSantis nixing “$35 million legislation for a Pasco County facility that’s earmarked for the Tampa Bay Rays’ spring training,” as reported by OutKick

The report asserts that the move is in response to the Tampa Bay Rays’ recent "woke" display of anti-Second Amendment virtue-signaling on social media.

On May 26, the Tampa Bay Rays released a statement in response to the tragic shooting in Uvalde.

The team's statement proceeded with an anti-gun blitz on Twitter.

"This cannot become normal,” the statement reads.

"We cannot become numb.

"We cannot look the other way.

"We all know, if nothing changes, nothing changes."

It adds that the team is offering $50,000 to Democrat Mike Bloomberg's far-left Everytown for Gun Safety’s Support Fund.

“In lieu of game coverage and in collaboration with @Yankees, we will use our channels to offer facts about the impacts of gun violence,” another tweet read.

The comment then opened up the platform to a series of anti-gun statistics:

“Every day, more than 110 Americans are killed with guns, and more than 200 are shot and injured,” the first fact read as administrators deemed guns the “leading cause of death for American children and teens in 2020″ with no further context in the tweet itself:

It also included woke terminology in its anti-gun blitz, stating that “Each year, more than 4,100 Latinx people die from gun violence in the U.S. and 13,300 are shot and wounded”:

This would not be the first time DeSantis has taken action against woke organizations advancing anti-freedom ideas in his state, taking on Disney after it vowed to fight against the Parental Rights in Education bill.

The bill bars classroom-led discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity for children in kindergarten through third grade.

“And so in Florida, our policies got to be based on the best interest of Florida citizens, not on the musing of woke corporations,” the governor said in March.
