ACTION NEEDED NOW
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 amendments 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 than 10 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 accessories, 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 any time!
