Tomorrow, March 1, 2018, the Florida Senate will take up SB-7026, a bill that punishes gun owners.
Senators are being bullied into voting for gratuitous gun control measures in order to be able to vote on school safety.
Senate leadership is trying to force Senators to vote for gun control if they want to vote to harden schools, to put armed security in schools and to keep guns out of the hands of dangerously mentally ill people.
These are the Gun Control measures contained in the Senate bill:
1. Makes it a felony for any person under 21 to purchase any firearm either privately or from a dealer. Exemption for active duty military & law enforcement only.
2. Minimum 3-Day Waiting Period on ALL FIREARMS. Exempts CW license holders and persons who have completed the Florida FWC Hunter Safety course.
3. Every year it confiscates 10% of the license fees paid by CW license holders to pay for the care of victims of mass shootings.
4. Bans the sale and transfer of Bump Stocks.
Please EMAIL members of the Florida Senate IMMEDIATELY and tell them to VOTE NO ON GUN CONTROL.
Urge them to provide armed security in schools and tighten mental health laws to keep guns out of the hands of those who are a danger to themselves or others BUT LEAVE THE RIGHTS OF LAW-ABIDING GUN OWNERS ALONE.
IN THE SUBJECT LINE PUT: VOTE NO ON GUN CONTROL– Vote Against SB-7026
