Florida bans AR15
 
For 15 minutes
Florida Senate bans AR-15 in rare weekend session — what happened next shocked everyone TheBlaze

Quote:

The Florida Senate on Saturday debated the merits of increased gun control measures and how to move forward legislatively after the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14.

The emotion-filled day even included a brief ban on the AR-15, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

What happened?
In the rare Saturday session, which included hours of debates and votes on numerous legislative amendments addressing firearm issues, the chamber temporarily approved a two-year ban on the purchase of AR-15 rifles in the Sunshine State.

The moment of drama came during an unrecorded voice vote where Florida senators shouted “yea” or “nay.” Florida Senate President Joe Negron, a Republican, afterward ruled the measure had been approved. But per chamber rules, the approval could be challenged — and that’s exactly what happened.

Republicans, who generally oppose most firearm restrictions, later reconsidered the measure and held a roll call vote on it, which struck down the two-year ban. According to the Times, just 15 minutes had passed between the time the measure was initially approved to the time it was reconsidered and struck down.

The vote on the measure was 21-17, with two Republicans joining the Democrats.

What else happened?
During the marathon session, Republican rejected nearly four dozen Democratic amendments to the “Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act,” the Florida assembly’s legislative response to the tragic shooting.

From the Times:

The legislation will be accompanied by an unprecedented infusion of cash into the school system to address mental health issues. The $400 million package includes $18.3 million for mobile crisis teams working with the Department of Children and Families and the schools; $500,000 for mental health first aid training; and $69 million for mental health assistance to school districts.

According to the Times, some of the rejected amendments included proposals to ban all “assault weapons,” to the creation of a gun registry for all firearms in the state of Florida to bans on high capacity magazines.

Two of the more popular Democratic amendments, the proposal to ban all “assault weapons” and a proposal to remove a measure that would allow school districts to arm teachers, were narrowly rejected, despite some Republican support.

However, many popular firearm restrictions were included in the bill, including a bump stock ban, a measure to raise the purchase age for rifles and shotguns and even a measure extending waiting periods on for some background checks.

The bill is expected to be approved by the Florida Senate on Monday. From there, lawmakers hope the Florida House approves it and sends it to Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) before the legislative session ends on March 9.

The local gun groups are in full catastrophe mode

JuggerNaught 03-04-2018 16:41

Dude..again...you're from New Zealand. You probably had to look up how to spell IQ

clu 03-04-2018 16:43

that's a lot of money to spend. if they're smart about it, it might work but it may be orwellian in nature. just ban the bumb stocks and let's keep the piece. this will not be the last effort nor the last high score attempt

Between me and the closest Dicks, there is literally 4 small mom and pop gun stores that have better prices, better selection, more knowledgeable staff

havax 03-04-2018 17:02

I'll usually either go to Academy to get some quick ammo, or i'll go to Bass Pro/Cabelas for guns/ammo. And yes, occasionally i'll go to a few small gun shops.

Father Ruckus 03-04-2018 17:04

Why would I ever go to Dicks for any fire arm, Bass Pro is better in every way. But i'd still shop at a mom and pop for sure.

JuggerNaught 03-04-2018 17:04

I go to a couple small mom and pops for ammo. Guns i can usually pick up via a couple different gun groups. But even in those groups, nobody will sell to you without at least doing a cursory check via the internet and many wont sell to you at all if they don't know you or you don't at least have an CWP

dicks did it as a PR move....they will start selling them again soon

they did the same thing when adam lanza shot up that school....and a couple years later they started selling them again

it's all about the PR perception and $$$$
