Sale, Transfer, or Storage of Firearms: Revises requirements for storage of firearms; provides criminal penalties if person other than owner access stored firearm & uses it in specified ways; requires seller or transferor of firearm to provide specified information; provides immunity for certain providers of information.

This is a stupid and bad bill all around. With the excuse of safety, it punishes gun owners and gun sellers.

Mind you: if you read this blog for any period of time you know I am for both training and the knowledge of the law, but never for government-mandate on both. The principle is simple: Tallahassee Pol (or assistant) does not know or understand what is involved.

The new idiocy in this bill is that Gun Stores would be required to give you a brochure and a class on gun safety with the purchase of a firearm. Of course, you will be charged for the brochure which kind of reminds me The Godfather when at te meeting of the Five Families, he says “Certainly he can present a bill for such services, we’re not Communists, after all.” after forcing Vito Corleone into sharing his political connections.

Here is the initial text regarding the brochure:

 At the retail commercial sale or retail transfer of any firearm, the seller or transferor shall:
1. Provide each purchaser or transferee with a basic firearm safety brochure. Such brochure must be produced by a  national nonprofit membership organization that provides a comprehensive voluntary safety program, including the training of people in the safe handling and use of firearms, or by another comparable nonprofit organization.

Now, do you happen to remember which organizations have been rebranding themselves as “Gun Safety” organizations? How do you feel about a brochure and class from Moms Demand, Brady or the Giffords?

“But Miguel! You surely exaggerate!” Is so, why immunity from liability section?

Organizations that produce basic firearm safety brochures for distribution to firearm dealers for subsequent distribution to purchasers of firearms under this section and firearm dealers are not liable for injuries resulting from the accidental discharge of nondefective firearms purchased from any dealer

If they were only thinking NRA or real gun training orgs, they would have not added the immunity as there is none now for CWP requirements.

You can go over the rest of the text. And don’t forget to add this sucker to the bill tracking.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
