Some of the members of the Florida Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) are very anti-gun and they are proposing and pushing gun ban and gun control amendments to put in the Florida Constitution.
Commissioners will be voting on these amendment soon. Links to these amendments are listed at the bottom.
Among these amendments are:
*An “assault weapons” ban which bans the distribution, sale, transfer, and possession of so-called assault weapons and any detachable magazine that has a capacity of more than 9 rounds. (Makes possession illegal with no compensation provided for those already possessed that must be surrendered)
*A ban on any semi-automatic rifle that is able to accept a detachable magazine or has a fixed magazine capable of holding more than10 rounds. (that means almost all semi-automatic rifles)
*A ban on the sale and transfer of “assault weapons” and defines “transfer” as the conveyance “from a person or entity to another person or entity WITHOUT any conveyance of money or other valuable consideration.” (Note: to “convey” between persons without compensation could mean the simple act of handing the firearm to another person while hunting, on the range, or anywhere)
*A 10 day waiting period (excluding weekends and legal holidays) on all firearms to facilitate a background check.
*A ban on the purchase of any firearm by a person under 21 years of age.
*A ban on the sale, transfer and possession of bump stocks and other devises, tools, kits, etc.
Please email CRC Commissioners and tell them to OPPOSE gun control amendments!
PLEASE DO IT NOW !!! They could be voting on these amendments at anytime
IN THE SUBJECT LINE PUT: VOTE AGAINST GUN CONTROL AMENDMENTS
Florida NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer took aim at the Constitution Revision Commission and House Speaker Richard Corcoran today, in separate “alerts” issued regarding past and proposed gun-related measures.
This morning, Hammer called out Corcoran for praising the new law that raised the age from 18 to 21 and imposed a three-day waiting period for the purchase of long guns, such as the AR-15-style weapon used by Nikolas Cruz to shoot dead 14 students and three staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day. The new law also bans bump stocks.
And the new law allows some teachers and other school personnel, who are specially trained and deputized by local sheriffs, to bring guns to school, a provision some pro-gun proponents like Corcoran are cheering because it does away with more than 4,000 “gun-free zones” — a.k.a. “schools.”
But Hammer, who sent out an email with the subject line “ALERT: We Were Born at Night But It Wasn’t Last Night, Mr. Speaker,” isn’t buying it.
She’s accusing the Land O’ Lakes Republican of “adding insult to injury” with his remarks.
“Corcoran tried to justify his treachery by ignoring the damaging gun control he supported and then claimed the effort to arm school employees makes it ‘one of the greatest Second Amendment victories we’ve ever had’ because it ends “gun free zones on school campuses.” That is complete nonsense,” Hammer wrote in an email today.
Later in the day, Hammer set her sights on the CRC, the once-every-20-years panel that can place constitutional amendments directly on the ballot. In the aftermath of the Feb. 14 mass shooting in Parkland, several commissioners have proposed gun-related measures, ranging from a ban on assault weapons to codifying the changes in the new state law in the state Constitution.
That drew this missive from Hammer:
