Florida Senate to take Up Gun Control Bills Tomorrow

Florida, USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Tomorrow, March 1, 2018, the Florida Senate will take up SB-7026, a bill that punishes gun owners.

Senators are being bullied into voting for gratuitous gun control measures in order to be able to vote on school safety.

Senate leadership is trying to force Senators to vote for gun control if they want to vote to harden schools, to put armed security in schools and to keep guns out of the hands of dangerously mentally ill people.

These are the Gun Control measures contained in the Senate bill:

1. Makes it a felony for any person under 21 to purchase any firearm either privately or from a dealer. Exemption for active duty military & law enforcement only.

2. Minimum 3-Day Waiting Period on ALL FIREARMS. Exempts CW license holders and persons who have completed the Florida FWC Hunter Safety course.

3. Every year it confiscates 10% of the license fees paid by CW license holders to pay for the care of victims of mass shootings.

4. Bans the sale and transfer of Bump Stocks.

Please EMAIL members of the Florida Senate IMMEDIATELY and tell them to VOTE NO ON GUN CONTROL.

Urge them to provide armed security in schools and tighten mental health laws to keep guns out of the hands of those who are a danger to themselves or others BUT LEAVE THE RIGHTS OF LAW-ABIDING GUN OWNERS ALONE.

IN THE SUBJECT LINE PUT: VOTE NO ON GUN CONTROL– Vote Against SB-7026

If the Florida Senate passes this bill, it would make anyone who has a bump stock or likewise capable item a felon if they sold it, gave it, or even moved it out of their place of residence after the date the bill becomes law ( day the Governor signs it ). They also want to ( in their words ) “confiscate” 10% of the trust fund that is for concealed weapons permits. 790.06 ( 13 ) states specifically that that fund cannot be given to the general fund or used for anything other than the concealed weapons licensing program.… Read more »

Florida Republicans are pushing this. Democrats are trying to add things like the end of private sales, magazine and gun bans, and far more worse things.

But the thing that needs to be brought to the full attention is that a Republican wrote SB 7026 and it is being backed by the GOP including Governor Rick Scott.

Bot sides are wanting to restrict our rights. Some just want to do it quicker than others.

@eg, if we stop voting for repubs, then we will have democrat rule. We will be firmly on the road to communism and no civil rights. Better to flood the repub primaries and choose a candidate that the GOP does not really want.

If tens of thousands of FL gun owners get off the couch and vote Scott out of office along with the others it will send a message. One question, does FL allow for referendums? If so that would be one way you might challenge these laws. A 19 yr old put it perfectly the other day when she said: “I just moved out of my mom’s house into my own apartment. Are you telling me I’m not going to be able have the means to defend myself against being raped and murdered?”. Someone needs to ask Rick Scott that very… Read more »
