Democrats in Florida have already started their effort to confiscate your guns, America, in the first taste of what Democrats are going to try when they take full control of the House of Representatives in Washington.
A leftist group in Florida is already moving to push an amendment to the state constitution that would ban whatever class of guns liberals find scary.
As Fox 35 reported:
The proposal, backed by the committee Ban Assault Weapons Now, was posted on the state Division of Elections website this month. The committee had raised nearly $410,000 since March, while spending almost $284,000, according to finance information. The expenditures included $75,000 last month to a California-based company for what was described in the finance information as “petitions.”
Ban Assault Weapons Now would have to submit hundreds of thousands of valid petition signatures to the state to get the measure on the 2020 ballot. Political committee had to submit at least 766,200 signatures to get measures on the 2018 ballot, and the petition threshold likely will increase for the 2020 election.
This measure would absurdly describe “assault weapons” as any firearm that would hold 10 rounds or more of ammunition at a time.
The measure would also ban these firearms for everyone but members of the military and police.
There would be an exemption for those who had the banned weapons before the passage of the measure. However, there would be a strict registration process for keeping them.
Naturally, Florida Democrats are excited for the measure.
According to Politico:
“I would love to get the chance to get this done as soon as possible,” said Rep. Ted Deutch, a South Florida Democrat who stepped into the gun debate’s national spotlight after the deadly Feb. 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in his district in Parkland. He’s leading the effort with Coral Springs Mayor Walter “Skip” Campbell.
Do not doubt that this is exactly where House Democrats intend to go in Washington. There was little appetite for such measures the last time Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House, but since then the Democrat Party has turned more radical than ever.
Democrats are coming for your guns, America.
Count on it. And prepare to oppose them.
When Democrats say they are not coming to confiscate your guns, they are lying.They have always been lying.
