Florida Gun Show: We've Never Seen Numbers Like This Before

The organizers of the Florida Gun Show, held at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa this weekend, told reporters that a record number of people attended the event this year. The event's manager, George Fernandez, says they've never seen numbers like this before — and the renewed gun control push from the Left played a significant role in boosting attendance.


I apologize if my posts upset you.

It is not difficult to see the pattern here. Libs take advantage of a tragedy, start talking gun control, gun sales soar. Libs want less guns in the public, and get the opposite. It is no different than the belief they portray that more laws equals less crime. They literally are insane, because they do in fact try the same tactics over and over, and expect a new result.

Except now the president is talking about new gun laws like raising the minimum buying age and banning bump stocks.

Also talking about arming teachers too, which is cool.

IGDAF about bump stocks personally. They're a stupid accessory and not critical to 2A rights. Let them have that win IMO.

The bump stocks can go far as I am concerned. Since it mostly young people that are doing this shooting, raising the age limit wouldn't be a bad idea. But the kids will still likely to be able to get their hands on guns.

Idk it's really hard to justify being able to serve in a military combat unit but not buy a gun. To me that's still way too much punishing of the law abiding citizen for not enough 'greater good.' 18 is a legal adult, and should come with all the rights that an adult gets.

Half of my Platoon in Vietnam could not vote or even buy a car in their name. But the politicians had no problem letting any of us get killed in some chithole half way around the world. I was the Acting Platoon Leader, and not able to vote or buy a vehicle in my name because I wasn't old enough, but the Army had no problem putting me in charge of the leadership of 33 men.

They are wanting to ban semi-autos....

Quote:
The bill prohibits the “sale, transfer, production, and importation” of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.

Bump stocks might be worthless but they shouldn't be illegal. Give an inch an they will take a foot. Also, what does outlawing bump stocks fix? nothing at all.

With the new dem proposal to ban semi-autos, they also want to ban the Marlin 60 since it can hold more than 10 rounds.

"semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. "

The Marlin 60 does not have a detachable magizine.

Yeup, it's a straight up semi-auto gun grab is what they're trying to push through.

A semui-auto rifle, pistol, or shotgun even having the ability to accept a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds will be reason to ban that firearm. Not too far of a stretch to say the 1911 will be banned because there are high-cap mags for it and they can accept a magazine that holds more than 10.

Also banned would be "production" - making your own and "transfer of" - inheriting or gifting to others. They want all semi-autos gone within a single generation.

Dems aren't willing to negotiate or appease, they want everything.

If an 18, 19, and 20 year old is not mature enough to buy a gun or drink alcohol, then they should still be considered a juvenile. they should not have the right to vote, should not be able to join the military, should not be tried as an adult in court, should not be able to enter into a legally binding contract, etc, etc. If they are adults at 18, treat them as adults at 18, along with all that comes with being an adult, including being able to purchase a firearm. Geez!

How about if you are old enough to work full time and pay income taxes then you are old enough to have all 10 of the rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights without restriction.
