New Florida Assault Weapons & Magazine Bill

Recommended Posts

Not sure if it will pass. FL has a long history of supporting CCW permits, stand your ground laws, and so forth.

 

 

However, as I look across EVERY state, there is a concerted effort from the left to push all sorts of laws. Meanwhile, unemployment is high, Bengazi, arms deals and federal aid to countries that hate us, the deficit out of control, healthcare entitlements will bankrupt us... seems like gun control is a GREAT distraction. what.gif

Be thankful that there are still LEO's like my local county sheriff. http://imgur.com/a/4A9ow And here's the type of response he is getting http://www.news-press.com/article/20130310/OPINION/303100042/Sound-Off-An-open-letter-Lee-County-Sheriff-Mike-Scott

 

AsI read the letter wrote to the Sheriff by Philip Louis Abbondanza. He says is his last little paragraph "Too many law enforcement officers paid for that uniform to be disgraced by someone wishing to use it to push his own or someone else’s political or personal agenda."

Well I have one question for Philip.

Isn't it a disgrace of the Presidential office to push his own Socialist political and personal agenda?

Just curious. Sounds like a typical jack a** Socialist Liberal to me.wacko.png

Sorry, FL is one of the last places i expect to see anything of this sort taking place. And if it were to happen, i'm sure Alabama would be happy to annex the panhandle. Norflabama or something.

It's only been introduced to committee, it's got a long way to go to become law. These fucksticks are just throwing shit at the wall to see if they can make something stick.

 

Eta, I don't know why it bunched it all together like that when I posted this.

So some jerkoff liberal introduced a bill to appease their yankee constituents. It'll die in committee. Florida has over 1 million CC permit holders.. double that of Texas. We're GOOD. If there's ever a "last stand" state, it's going to be this one.

Today is the final day for the legislature to meet, the bill looks like it's still stuck in committee without any action it at all. It can't be brought up until the next regular session which will be next year. If a special session of the legislature is convened it has to be called back by the governor. So apparently this is mute for today but I'm sure Joyner, Dem. from Tampa will reintroduce it again and again..........
