Raising the age and creating a waiting period are bad, very bad. Trade those for better background checks.
Democrats weren’t as bad as people feared just decades ago.
Now look where we are.
Drip, drip, drip, Socialism...
Drip, drip, drip, Communism...
Bumo stocks are out, but how about binary triggers? They seem more useful to me anyway.
how on earth is it legitimate to take away 2nd amendment right from 18-21 year olds? It can’t be.
How did people go along with this?
Government answer is always worse than the problem because it never solves the original problem and screws everybody else. I really hate government. I equally hate the defects of society (most of whom are liberals).
Waiting periods are the dumbest thing. I mean, they’re not even a big deal to me, but it’s just dumbfounding that Democrats thinks making someone wait 72 hours to buy a gun is saving anyone anywhere’s life.
How does raising the minimum age from 18 to 21 help address school shootings when the last shooter was 17?
Much of it is meaningless posturing.
[[ Give law enforcement more authority to seize weapons and ammunition from those deemed mentally unfit or otherwise a threat;]]
Deemed unfit by whom? Courts? Police? Neighbors?
Also of note was this wording: “Or otherwise a threat”? As determined by who? ex wives? Jilted lovers? people that hate you? courts? Who will be judging just who is and who isn’t a supposed ‘threat’?
And no more guns in gun free zones!!
It's still bad. ANY new gun control is bad.
Two things missing from the What it does not do list:
1- Fire members of law enforcement (especially Sheriffs and FBI Agents) who fail to do their jobs.
2 - What liberals really want and wont be satisfied until they get; removal of the 2nd Amendment and confiscation of all guns from law abiding citizens.
Are you kidding?
And none of it is retroactive?
(c) In determining whether grounds for a risk protection
856 order exist, the court may consider any relevant evidence,
857 including, but not limited to, any of the following:
891 13. Evidence of recent acquisition of firearms or
892 ammunition by the respondent.
>>It isn’t as bad as we feared.
...according to the New York Times, an unbiased pinnacle of the free press..
Add: IT LETS THE FBI, Broward County School District, and Sheriff off the hook! What it doesnt do:
Doesn't solve the problem of letting crazy liberals from getting guns!
What was left out of the article:
This bill gives law enforcement the ability to take possession of all firearms and ammunition from someone if they feel a credible threat was made by that person. So you have an argument with your spouse and the police are called. Your spouse claims that you made threats. The police get an emergency order from a judge and seizes all of your firearms and ammunition. Then you must go to court and argue before a judge why the seizure shouldn't be permanent.
This bill also goes into effect immediately upon signature of the governor, and provides for no grace period for owners of "bump-fire stocks" as defined any time to lawfully dispose of them. Once the bill is signed, anyone in possession of a bump-fire stock is a felon.
Yes, it is as bad as we feared.
Florida Republicans caved.
