To Democrats, the Second Amendment is about hunting when it’s convenient for it to be about hunting, and it’s about other stuff when that’s convenient. Florida State Sen. Audrey Gibson of Jacksonville seems to think that any use of firearms must be about anger. Or something.
A Florida legislator wants anyone trying to buy ammunition to complete an anger management program first, in what critics say is the latest example of local lawmakers reaching for constitutionally-dubious solutions to the problem of gun violence.
The bill filed Saturday by state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, would require a three-day waiting period for the sale of any firearm and the sale of ammunition to anyone who has not completed anger management courses. The proposal would require ammo buyers to take the anger management courses every 10 years.
“This is not about guns,” Gibson said. “This is about ammunition and not only for the safety of the general community, but also for the safety of law enforcement.”
Actually it’s about several things, including government busybodies run amok, and about backdoor registration and monitoring of law-abiding gun owners and firearms. It’s also about Democrats as a party being the party of oppression and control. Empower them at any level and pretty soon you’re kissing your freedoms goodbye.
Gibson’s bill does not offer a threshold for the amount of ammunition needed to necessitate the need for anger management courses.
“It is unlawful to: A) Sell ammunition to another person who does not present certification that he or she has successfully completed an anger-management program consisting of at least 2 hours of online or face-to-face instruction in anger-management techniques,” the bill reads. “The certification must be renewed every 10 years. B) Purchase or otherwise obtain ammunition by fraud, false pretense, or false representation.”
Shhh…don’t tell her that some people know how to make their own bullets.
