A state lawmaker wants to outlaw use of guns on residential properties except in cases of self-defense.
State Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, whose district includes parts of Manatee and Sarasota counties, filed a bill Thursday to ban discharging a firearm in Florida on any zoned residential property, which would include large-acreage ranches and farms, except on properties exclusively approved for hunting or in cases where “a person is lawfully defending life or property or performing official duties.”
And as a stupid bills go, it does not matter if your residence has a couple of thousand acres of land smack in the middle of nowhere land, you are still verboten to pop some rounds.
So far, no backers on this bill. But we just need another jackass opening a rifle range from his second story bedroom to the Koi pond to make this thing happening.
