And, it was passed with bi-partisan support.

https://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2018/7026/BillText/er/HTML


The Republican Super Majority in Florida passed gun control bill SB 7026. It is now headed to Governor Rick Scott’s desk. SB 7026 is his baby of a bill and horrible in every sense of the word . . .

This bill makes it illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to buy a long gun. It makes possession and ownership and bump stock or similar accessory a third degree felony starting October 1, 2018.

It absolutely throws out due process with restraining orders now, and it doesn’t even allow teachers to carry on campus. That part was stripped from the bill.

As used in this section, the term "bump
fire stock" means a conversion kit, a tool, an accessory, or a
device used to alter the rate of fire of a firearm to mimic
automatic weapon fire or which is used to increase the rate of
fire to a faster rate than is possible for a person to fire such
semiautomatic firearm unassisted by a kit, a tool, an accessory,
or a device.


Reading the underlined portion of the Statute 790.222 is not comforting in any way. It is so vague that it could mean just about anything. Accessories that can accelerate the rate of fire of a semi automatic rifle without converting the semi automatic rifle into a machine gun:

Bump stocks
Crank fire devices
Binary triggers
3 gun triggers (Geissele and LaRue, among others, makes a wide variety)
Lightweight bolt carrier groups
Buffer springs and different buffer weights
Gas system length
Adjustable Gas blocks
TRANSFERABLE / REGISTERED Lightening Link (the host remains semi, the LL is the MG)
TRANSFERABLE / REGISTERED DIAS (the host remains semi, the RDIAS is the MG)
TRANSFERABLE / REGISTERED HK sears and trigger packs (the host remains semi, the sear or pack is the MG)
TRANSFERABLE / REGISTERED FNC sears (the host remains semi, the sear is the MG)

Contact Florida Gov Rick Scott, tell him that this is a blatant infringement of Second Amendment rights and to veto this bill: https://www.flgov.com/contact-gov-scott/email-the-governor/

It doesn't matter if you're from Florida or not.

Think about this: If this can happen in a previously "gun-friendly" state like Florida, it can happen anywhere.

third degree felony starting October 1, 2018. Really!?

So our Boys and Girls can go die for this country at 18 but can not own a fire arm until 21... :0aThinking_Face_Emo Yeah, that makes sense. :0aFace_With_Rolling

Yup, because after all, we are too stupid and immature to own a weapon before age 21. We can have a belt fed one at work to protect everyone else. Its just off duty that we are too stupid and cant be trusted.

Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill into law today.
Just like that he made thousands of Floridians into felons.
And freedom dies a little more.

Yep. They can fight and die to protect those rights but now they can't enjoy them.
Florida has a 3 day waiting period for firearms now.
Due process is out the window, if you are even accused of wrong doing you could lose your guns and the right to own them. To get them back you have to wait for years and spend a bunch of money on lawyers.

This is tyranny, plain and simple. This is why the second amendment exists, yet exercise of it is now criminal.

The National Rifle Association filed a federal lawsuit on Friday against Florida for the state's new law which prohibits gun sales to adults between the ages of 18 and 21.

The complaint says the new ban, which was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott hours before the complaint was filed, violates 18 to 21 year-olds' "fundamental rights" to purchase a firearm.

"This blanket ban violates the fundamental rights of thousands of responsible, law-abiding Florida citizens and is thus invalid under the Second and Fourteenth Amendments," the complaint reads. "At 18 years of age, law-abiding citizens in this country are considered adults for almost all purposes and certainly for the purposes of the exercise of fundamental constitutional rights."

In my opinion they need to file suit against the whole damn bill, it's all unconstitutional, from the age restrictions, to the device ban, to the suspension of due process. Every gun owning Floridian needs to file suit against the State for this abomination of a bill. Hammer the Hell out of them.

Huh, wonder where the ACLU is on this one? Nothing? Crickets? Must not be a liberal enough cause for them.

I think the NRA is going to overturn this bill because it was hastily put together. I see them going after this bill in bits so they can focus of it piece by piece. Maybe they think they have a better chance of getting rid of it that way VS the entire bill all at once. Right now there is just way to much "feelings" driving these Anti-2A bills. The bottom line is we need to start actually fighting for our fights by actively going to these protests and showing our support. The liberals have been doing this for years, and they have a very strong voice.

Based-Stick man and the Berkeley Riots is an example. People got behind that guy and the Conservatives put up a fight against antifa. Im not saying we need to hit someone with a stick, but i am saying we need to march and show our numbers. That would be a huge step.
