Gun-rights advocates and other extremists act like every attempt to create sane and logical regulations on guns is a fascist assault on their freedom. But a quick look at other nations shows this to be untrue.
The supreme law of the land is the constitution. So, if the government touches you firearms they broke that constitutional law and they will be subject to that law. Sadly, Florida Governor Rick Scott does not see it that way!
He defied his longtime allies at the National Rifle Association on Friday to sign into law a new set of gun regulations, more than three weeks after a school shooting claimed 17 lives in his state.
“I am going to do what I think are common-sense solutions,” Scott said after the signing. “I think this is the beginning. There is now going to be a real conversation about how we make our schools safe.”
The law, passed by Republican legislative leaders and a number of Democrats, marks a major shift for a state known as a laboratory for gun rights legislation, including legal protections for people who use guns in self-defense and an expansive concealed-carry law.
Now the NRA has responded!
The National Rifle Association has reportedly filed a lawsuit over Florida gun legislation that was signed into law on Friday.
The lawsuit takes issue with the part of the bill that raises the age limit for purchasing all firearms from 18 to 21, according to the Associated Press. The NRA claims the regulation violates the 2nd amendment.
The NRA harshly criticized the bill after Scott signed it, saying the new measure “punishes law-abiding gun owners for the criminal acts of a deranged individual.”
It’s time to speak loud before they try to silence and disarm us.
You’re not imagining it, history shows that governments always manipulate tragedies to attempt to disarm the people.
