He apparently was not here in corpus praesens, but his MAIG/Brady bills were. I was checking yesterday the Florida Senate bills since it was the last day for the legislature and noticed several proposals that seemed quite familiar but did not go anywhere.
SB 1670: Assault Weapons and Magazines. Basically the version of Feinstein’s AWB Deux. D.O.A.
SB 1640: Weapons or Firearms. Florida’s version of Universal background checks without the sweet parts of the Federal bill and a much more restricted family tree. D.O.A.
SB 1582: Culpable Negligence. This would be an Assault Weapons Ban Light. D.O.A.
SB 1018: Regulation of Firearms and Ammunition. I think I may have mentioned this one before. Basically eliminating the legislature’s pre-emption and allowing every frigging elected town, county and/or dog-catcher to create its own local regulations. D.O.A.
SB 1234: Sale of Firearms and Ammunition. Imposing a 4% tax on the sales of firearms and ammunition to pay for Mental Health studies, treatment and assorted bullshit. Apparently guns cause madness or they cannot collect from Bath Salt dealers and we are the Usual Suspects. D.O.A.
I would love to know how many other states had bills like these introduced and did not go anywhere. I know Gun Control activist do have an “involuntary vascular penile reaction” for Florida since we are pretty much have been defying them and being the bad example on guns for other states since the late 90s and before. That they can’t advance anything worthwhile down here must be eating them up inside.
And the Florida Senate has adjourned Sine Die. That means “They are done and can’t screw up no more.”
