Hey Floridians!

Florida Urgent Now! Senate to take up Gun Control Bill TOMORROW
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2018

DATE: February 28, 2018
TO:

USF & NRA Member and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer
USF Executive Director
NRA Past President

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

  1. I emailed:

    This bill is especially egregious.

    First, not a single thing in it would have prevented Parkland with the exception of the age restriction.

    How many 18-20 year old people who own a firearm killed no one that day? How many did, ONE.

    A single person, how many zeros in front of that percentage of the population is one?

    How many gun owners, likewise, killed nobody that day, or in any of the days since? Millions. How are we responsible?

    Bump stocks? Really? The shooter didn't even own one, or it would be plastered all over the news by breathless reporters.

    The focus on guns and gun sales misses the elephant in the room. Government already had all the means needed to stop the shooter before he fired the first shot.

    Government did nothing so they must punish the innocent for their blunder?

    No! I say.

    It's doubly unjust in that a large portion of the state has no Senator representing them.

    I am particularly fed up with being blamed when I've done nothing wrong and the state legislature, in the heat of passion, attempts to curtail my rights.

    Where's the waiting period for the legislature to cool down before passing bills?

    Angus McThag and family.

  2. I went through the amendments proposed for the bill discussion's tomorrow and are No-Shit scary.

    -Repeal State Pre-emption.
    -Assault Weapons Ban light.
    -Assault Weapon Ban Weinstein-Style.
    -Safe Storage of weapons to forbid concealed carry when minors are near.
    -Add Country Administration buildings as Gun Free Zones.
    -Universal Background Checks.
    -Repeal the Second Amendment in Florida.
    -Firearm Registration.
    -Moratorium on sales, transfers and delivery of AR 15 rifles for 2 years for a "study."
    -Bump Fire stock ban.
    -Making murders in schools "illegaler" than outside the school.
    -Parent can remove a child from classroom if the teacher is carrying. That means making public what teacher carries and invalidating the principle.

  3. My main hope is that laundry list appears as insane to the pro-gun folks as it does to us.

    It's opportunistic overreach, and if our side notices we have a chance.
