Florida Alert: OBAMA Inspired Gun Control Bills in Florida

Sunday, January 10, 2016

 

DATE:  January 10, 2016
TO:  USF & NRA Member and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer
  USF Executive Director 
  NRA Past President


With President Obama now boldly attacking Second Amendment rights, gun control bills have already been filed by members of the Florida Legislature and more could be filed before the filing deadline and the start of the 2016 Legislative Session. 

The 2016 Legislative Session begins on Tuesday, January 12, 2016, when the House convenes at 9:30am and the Senate convenes at 10:00am.

Once again a bill has been filed that might be called the "protection of criminals act." It has been filed by Rep. Alan Williams (D-Tallahassee) to repeal the Stand Your Ground law.  And of course a "background check" bill has been filed.

Just to give you an idea of what is coming, below is a list of a few of the bills already filed for this session. (Click on the links to view these bills)

SB-370 Sale or Transfer of Firearms at Gun Shows by Sen. Arthenia Joyner (D) Sale or Transfer of Firearms at Gun Shows; Prohibiting a person from selling, offering for sale, transferring, exchanging, or delivering a firearm at a gun show unless a gun show vendor is a party to the transaction; providing criminal penalties, etc. Defines "gun show vendor"as a federally licensed firearms dealer (FFL holder), manufacturer, or importer. Defines "Gun Show" as any event or function where 3 or more FFL holders offer to sell, trade or delivers firearms.
