During his prime-time speech, President Joe Biden asked when the nation would stand up to the gun lobby.

State Rep. Randy Fine of Brevard County tweeted the following message to the president: "Try to take our guns and you'll learn why the second amendment was written in the first place."

Channel 9 caught up with Fine in Tallahassee. Fine said the tweet was not a threat.

"I was pretty disgusted at the president politicizing last night and Democrats coming out saying 'F' Republicans, blaming Republicans for that," Fine said.

Channel 9′s Christopher Heath is getting more reactions from lawmakers in Tallahassee.

He will have more starting on Eyewitness News at 4 p.m.
