School Safety and Security; Requiring a sheriff to establish a school guardian program under a certain condition; (ETC)

Just popped in my notifications. An amendment by Senator Stewart (Democrat, parts of Mickey Mouse County) and would add questions farther than found in form 4473 which would eventually lead to Florida having to create its own firearms purchase form and the buyer having to fill both:

..questions about the buyer’s criminal history and other information relating to the potential buyer’s or transferee’s eligibility to purchase a firearm.

Of course, we don’t know what that “other information” might be and as we know, generalities are very dangerous. What would make you a prohibited Floridian? Hate crimes like wearing a MAGA hat in Starbucks?  Being a member of the NRA? Refusing to eat pizza with pineapple?

The rest of the amendment covers notification of “nonapproval” to Law Enforcement. What the heck is that “nonapproval” crap? As far as I know, everybody uses “denial” including the ATF. This sounds like somebody from Everytown wrote the amendment and is not familiar with the proper terms.

One thing to take from this is that the other Gun Control bills  are expected to go nowhere and they are trying desperately to tack stuff up on this one. That also means get ready to have more Gun Control amendments tacked into the bill including “Assault Weapons Ban, Magazine Ban, Universal Background Checks and Gun Registration schemes.

  1. Perhaps “nonapproval” is meant to establish that the transaction will only be approved if the authorities feel there is a good reason why it should be — i.e., the default is to non-approve it. Sort of like “may issue” for purchases.

  2. Similar to pkoning above. And I don’t believe that “Everytown” is unaware of the proper terms. They have lawyers, too.

    “Nonapproval” is just what it says: not a clear approval. A denial is one kind of nonapproval, but there’s a whole world of outcomes in between “approved” and “denied”.

    Thus, in addition to a denial, a “delay” is a nonapproval. A “no answer” is a nonapproval. A “NICS system offline due to upgrades or technical difficulties” is a nonapproval.

    For that matter, so is a private transfer not subject to a NICS check.

    Any outcome that doesn’t produce a clear “proceed” from NICS — even outcomes that default to “proceed” after three days or transfers where a NICS check isn’t required — can be classified as a “nonapproval”.

    And all nonapprovals will be reported to local law enforcement for potential action. Even those that don’t require it.

    It’s all about harassing honest gun owners. It’s always about harassing honest gun owners.
