Florida - "Assault Weapons" & Magazine Ban Filed
NRA-ILA ^ | 12-20-2004 | NRA

Monday, December 20, 2004

TO: USF & NRA Members & Friends FROM: Marion P. Hammer Unified Sportsmen of Florida Executive Director NRA Past President

SUBJECT: SB-500

It has started !! The threat by the Brady Campaign/Million Mom Marchers to reenact the Clinton Gun Ban state by state has started with Florida. The first Gun Ban bill has been filed for the 2005 Florida Legislative Session which begins in March 2005. The bill has not been referred to committees yet. We will notify members when it has been referenced and will provide email addresses to legislators you need to contact to help fight this bill.

SB 500 - Assault Weapons/Detachable Magazine Ban by Gwen Margolis (D-Miami Beach); Would ban the manufacture, importation, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of any semi-automatic firearm defined as "assault weapons" and any detachable magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds. It would require forfeiture and confiscation of any such firearm or magazine. Further, it would require the state to destroy any such firearm within 60 days after confiscation or forfeiture. It provides immunity from prosecution if firearm is voluntarily surrendered. Otherwise, it makes a violation of the provisions of this bill a felony of the second degree (15 years in prison and $10,000 fine).

Gwen Margolis.....always looking for free publicity.

It won't pass, not in Florida, but if it does, we'll see what happens....When they knock on my door looking for the non-existing evil rifles they claim I have, I'll let you all know.

Well, that sucks. Appears to be more draconian than the Federal ban had been, no grandfathering, provides for destruction of the weapon instead if you're a good subject and turn the weapon in.

Wondering what definition of "assault weapon" they'll use.

When you create big government in one sphere of life, don't be surprised when it encroaches into other spheres.

That proposed bill simply jumps ahead and lists exactly what politicians such as Hillary, Kennedy, Schumer, and Feinstein are attempting to accomplish in increments.

For fear of getting seriously off-topic here, Custer, suffice to say that I actually agree with you. A big problem with liberal social welfare problems is that they quickly become social control programs. And this is coming from a lefty!
