Six Billboards outside…Miami, Orlando, Pensacola and Tallahassee? It's not as catchy as the Oscar-winning "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri."
Still, Florida liberals are taking a cue from Hollywood. Progressive groups have bought ad space all over the state in an effort to put pressure on politicians to address gun violence.
Monday the Democratic Party of Florida publicized two billboards they erected recently in Orlando and Tallahassee. The messages cite the Sun Sentinel slamming Gov. Rick Scott for doing "nothing" between the Pulse nightclub shooting that claimed 49 lives and the recent Parkland school shooting.
The Democrats' billboards struck a relatively quiet note compared to some other progressive messages. Mad Dog PAC, a group run by former Clinton White House staffer Claude Taylor, put up an incendiary message near Pensacola.
"The NRA is a terrorist organization," screams the billboard.
And Avaaz, a global activist group, a few weeks ago took direct aim at Sen. Marco Rubio — who's had to deal with a good deal of criticism for his handling of the gun issue.
"Slaughtered in school / And still no gun control? / How come, Marco Rubio?" The three mobile billboards in Miami read in a direct nod to the award-winning film.
Rubio has said he supports certain gun policies like limiting magazine capacity and raising the purchasing age for certain rifles. But he also said there's little political appetite in the Republican-controlled Congress to pass such policies.
