Apparently, our Second Amendment rights are now changed as Florida Governor Rick Scott’s new law for legal gun owners has gone into affect.
Rick Scott’s recently signed gun law after the Parkland shooting was completed on Saturday. The new law takes away the right of 18-20 year-olds from purchasing firearms, ultimately affecting our Second Amendment right as Americans. If you look closely, this indiscriminately sways adult Americans who had absolutely no part in the Florida shooting.
This is absolutely absurd and ridiculous on every level.
At this rate the next time an 18-20 year-old decides to get into a traffic accident and kills someone for drinking and driving, then all 18-20 year-olds will be banned from driving ever again. Sadly, this is how things are looking now in America. Soon the left will take away every right we have as U.S. citizens.
As reported by Fox2Now.com, “Possession of assault-style weapons by anyone under 21 would be illegal under legislation that the Illinois House endorsed. The plan sponsored by Democratic Rep. Michelle Mussman of Schaumburg would prohibit minors from buying or possessing high-capacity weapons, attachments, .50-caliber rifles and cartridges. They would have 90 days to transfer ownership. The legislation was OK’d 64-51.
Critics decried the idea that the government would confiscate property. Mussman said authorities will not visit homes to pick up weapons. But a first offense for getting caught with prohibited firearms would be a misdemeanor offense.
The legislation was the first of seven gun-restriction measures the House is considering Wednesday. The plan sponsored by Democratic Rep. Martin Moylan of Des Plaines was OK’d 83-31.
Lawmakers are responding to the Parkland, Florida massacre on Feb. 14 that killed 17 students and the fatal shooting of a Chicago police officer a day earlier.”
We recently shared with y’all the story of California Congressman Ted Lieu who needed to have a lesson in firearms 101. What the left has done so very well is change lexicon, remake language to fit their purpose – they’re very adept at this. To state that they are making possession of “assault-style” weapons illegal for anyone under 21 is absurd.
First of all, how can these legislators deem themselves warranted to restrict the Second Amendment right of adult Americans? And for what specific purpose? A hammer can be considered an “assault-style” weapon, just like a nail gun. These are semi-automatic firearms, and if there is no probable cause, how can these so-called “legislators” make such a blanket policy?
Could a tactical pump-action shotgun be considered an “assault-style” weapon? Can you deem a high-powered hunting rifle as an “assault-style” weapon? The problem here is that this inaccurate and nebulous declaration can be used to fit any category the progressive socialist left prefers. It’s absolutely ludicrous to punish anyone under 21 in Illinois for the actions of one person in Florida, but collectivism is how the left rolls.
From a political aspect, the left has just guaranteed they will not win a majority in the U.S. House or Senate. This is the type of overreach that will result in fueling a grand turnout of Americans, especially 18 to 20-year-old Americans, who see their rights being eroded and taken away. And how can it be that a law-abiding, legal gun owner can all of a sudden be guilty of any criminal charge, misdemeanor or not? Why pass this legislation if you’re not going to enforce it, meaning seek out owners? We all know this isn’t the case. What will happen is that a notice will be sent out to alerting 18 to 20-year-old owners of these specific firearms. As well, I can assure you that there will be a combing through the records of background checks to find these specific owners.
This is how it all begins. If we think for one moment there isn’t some hidden progressive socialist leftist strategy room directing these actions, we are grossly mistaken. However, we all know how this ends — just ask the Redcoats who were marching towards Concord, Massachusetts back in April 1775. Or ask the Mexican Cavalry who showed up at Gonzales, Texas demanding their cannon back in October 1835.
Molon Labe! Come and take It!
In this week’s Old School Patriot podcast I hit back at those who want to destroy the 2nd Amendment in the wake of the Florida school shootings and one person in particular needs to be fired. Click here to listen.
