FL senators voting on gun control/bans today!

Post by Jonathanw » Mon Feb 26, 2018 2:57 pm

Apparently a long list of anti-gun amendments (including bans) are being voted on right now.

Anyone seeing this?

Amendment 772096 makes the Dept of Ag transfer 10% of all fees from CCW permits be spent on repaying Trauma Centers for the medical costs of caring for patients of "Mass Shootings". The term "mass shooting" means an incident in which four or more people are killed or injured by firearms in one or more locations in close proximity.

Amendment 411458 is the Assault Weapons Ban.

Amendment 812202 makes possession of a Bump Stock a Felony.

Amendment 697008 makes a requirement to have a safe, trigger lock, etc... basically you cannot keep a gun unlocked or loaded in your home.

Amendment 197998 makes registration legal in Florida.

Amendment 504798 makes universal background checks and ends private sales.

No, but thank you for posting it.

How about an amendment for Leos not taking an active part intervening a live shooting?

So, honest question as I'm not a lawyer or anything...

"IF" these bump stocks get banned, will it be different from what happened with the "Atkins Accelerator" or a repeat of that? IE confiscation? Or was they re-classified or something by the ATF and not actually banned, just reclassified? I wasn't sure how that would work, I thought there were laws against that. De Facto or whatever retroactive banning wasn't legal?

Thanks for the update! I hope this is the beginning of a major trend and the end of So-Called "Common Sense" communism.

Imagine the amount of sunshine that was pumped up their asses to get them there in the first place!

They were SURE everything was going to go their way.

Indeed. They're going to have to hire someone to mop up all those liberal tears. Would that be job creation? MAGA?

Their hearts are in the right place, but sadly their logic was not.

They were mid-way through when I tuned in. Did the "raise the age from 18 to 21" part pass??

The guy who starts talking at 1:57:15 is truly cringeworthy.

Yeah that seems like a rational response to a fear of guns :-k

And somehow mental health isn't the problem?

Speaking of suicide, you gotta hope the shitlibs keep making an issue of this going into November.
