FL Billionaire Collects Machine Guns But Doesn’t Want You to Have Guns

Florida – -(Ammoland.com)- South Florida elitist billionaire Mike Fernandez loves to brag to the rich and powerful about his “colossal” gun collection which includes many machine guns and “assault weapons.”

Some very wealthy people who are business and social friends have been guests in his mansion and have seen his collection. They say he loves to show off what he calls his “colossal” gun collection. They report that he has an unbelievable collection of Class 3 firearms including M16s, belt fed machine guns and so many firearms it’s unbelievable.

Read the politico article here:

Although Mike Fernandez is known for being one of the biggest donors to Republicans seeking public office, in February when he announced in the media that “I will not give one cent to anyone who does not support major change regarding military-type weapons being sold,” it apparently rattled Republicans who wanted his money.

It has to make makes us wonder how many Republicans voted for the gun control bill (SB-7026) to keep his check book open to them and to Republican leadership. Note: New NRA grades are coming soon for Senate and House Republicans.

Since his money buys him a seat above the law, he must feel safe calling for gun control and banning the guns of honest, hardworking, law-abiding citizens who share our country with him.

This is the same Miguel “Mike” Fernandez who fled Cuba as a boy and immigrated to America to get away from Fidel Castro’s Cuba. He probably doesn’t want to remember that one of the first things Castro did when he came to power was confiscate all citizen owned guns. Then he took their property, their wealth, their freedom and their dignity – creating the ultimate “gun-free zone.

Once in the USA, with the US Constitution to protect his rights, Fernandez rose from a poor immigrant to a wealthy Floridian who enjoys buying expensive “toys” – like a military armored personnel carrier, jet planes, a helicopter, a mega-yacht – and apparently people – and it would seem to include state and federal politicians.

Miguel “Mike” Benito Fernandez fled Castro’s oppression in search of freedom. He has enjoyed the bounty of our nation and the freedom that was purchased with the sweat and blood of patriots. He has flourished in a freedom that allows him to own, enjoy and show off a “colossal” gun collection. Now Fernandez wants to thank America by imposing gun control on you.

It is amazing but all the major gun control measures that have past and are now in affect All took place under a Republican POTUS. Notice how the perceived “Pro 2A Party” has led to so many of our liberties stripped?

If the Feds tried, I imagine that they could finds grounds for revocation of citizenship, and deportation, there being limits to the things money can buy.

, The procedure is called Recision. It requires going through every application that an alien has filed with CIS, ever. If even one small untruth can be found, then that application is fraudulent. Fraudulent application can not be the basis for granting status or citizenship.

Donald Trump could “end” Soros in a second ………. if he WANTED TO. So why doesn’t he?…………. Soros is Rothschild’s property and Trump is beholden to theJews …. Did George Soros disclose his Nazi collaboration on his USA immigration papers? I guarantee he did NOT, because he would not have been admitted to America. Therefore he LIED on his immigration forms and his “admittance” to America is NULL & VOID. Item No. 56 on the form I-485 to adjust immigrant status to that of permanent resident which must be signed and sworn to under oath before a U.S. immigration officer.:… Read more »

? you obviously do not understand that with the amassed wealth of billions of dollars Soros doesn’t give Jack or squat about whether or not he is a resident of American citizen for ANY purpose whatsoever. He is far beyond wasting his time and energy so that he can raise his right hand, take an oath of any type of allegiance toward America and show respect to OUR flag!

If he truly wanted to he could buy his own country!

This is a good example of why we need to limit aliens into the united states. They need to adapt to our country and our culture instead of us adapting to their beliefs. Most people fleeing to our country seem to have no memory of why they fled their country but they are more than happy to to subvert us when it suits them. We now make forms with multiple languages and supply translators to non english speakers, should they not learn to read and write english, or do they milk us for everything and then return to their country… Read more »

Say “How many times is he a hypocrite? Let me count the ways.”
Count each gun, each magazine, each accessory, and each bullet. Raise exponentially to the power of the # years since he left Cuba.
Force him to count while flying to Cuba.
Tell Fidel Castro’s closest relatives Fernandez wishes to donate guns to Cuban citizens.
Give them away free.
Drop in to visit Elian Gonzalez.

Of course. Just like the 18th Amendment, prohibition. It only applied to “other people.” The elitist keep their right. The Clinton’s, Obama’s etc. will keep their armed guards to protect them from the masses. The same mind set is evident in the “Only One’s.” They are above the law for the common folk.

This is aligned with the story of the senator from Texas who was anti-gun and he shot an intruder breaking.into his home with a large caliber revolver. Double standards have always been the rule for the elite, but they used to avoid mucking with the US Constitution at least overtly..

He came here and made a pile of wealth that can dissapear faster than it was made. Keep it up jackass, when they try and take ours, we’ll take yours.

Check your history, the second amendment was put there for private protection from an overpowering government such as England had over the colonies, it still holds true today as you look at England, Australia, and Canada, all still under the British rule, so why do we want to fashion our gun laws after the rules of the country our founding fathers revolted against years ago. If the schools would teach any History maybe the children would know how and why this country this country was founded and why we can assemble and have free speech, I’ve been in other countries… Read more »

if he has Permanent Resident status or is a citizen, then he can lawfullyown firearms. If he has Permanent Resident status or some lesser statute, he can only be deported for committing a deportable offense.

Why are you shocked? This is the norm. This is nothing new. For some reason, no matter what the background (case in point, George Soros) and what they went through, when they become super rich they turn on the very people and the system that helped get them there. It may have to do with the urge to control people when they become super rich. Guess there’s nothing else to do since they have all the money and things they want. Next, is controlling other people’s lives.

Because the BATFE has capriciously limited the number of full auto actions, by making up its own unconstitutional rule, each mating gun is a rare and valuable commodity. To Fernandez this is a way of storing value as the purchase power of the dollar is diminished by every president from FDR to Barry Soetoro. If, suddenly, the BATFE rule against any new full auto actions were repealed, the value would go dramatically down.

What Bill is referring to is the Hughes Amendment, which was enacted with the tacit approval of the NRA in 1986. It limits the sale, to civilians, of any full auto firearms to those manufactured prior to 1986. We’ve been trying to get this repealed ever since with ZERO help from the NRA. If it were to be repealed you’d likely see the price of, say a current $16,000 FN FNC drop back down to $7,000 or less and tube guns would drop to a few hundred dollars plus the tax of $200. Again, this would be realistically doable IF… Read more »

Agree with you there. A couple generations of Americans have had their rights infringed since before they were even born. And the largest civil rights organization could have arguably helped the politicians with this infringement through inaction or one sided compromise. Sometimes I feel like Poland in WW2 with the Russians just waiting for the Germans to finish us off in the Warsaw uprising. The FUDDS that run the NRA are a huge problem and need to go. Once they are done with the modern gun people they will come for your duck guns and bolt actions. I am a… Read more »
