NRA Files Suit Against Gov. Rick Scott’s Gun Control

NRA Files Suit Against Gov. Rick Scott’s Gun Control
9 Mar 2018
Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed a massive gun control bill on March 9 and later that same day the NRA filed suit against Scott’s gun control.

The bill comes in response to the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and features waiting periods for long guns, firearm confiscation laws, and a ban on bump stocks – although bump stocks were not even used in the Florida shooting.

Moreover, the gun control bill raises the minimum purchase age for long gun purchases from 18-years-old to 21. And this is point on which the NRA seized and filed a federal lawsuit the same day the gun control was signed.

Marion Hammer, who was the first female president of the NRA (1995-1998), informed Breitbart News that the NRA “filed a lawsuit in federal court against the State of Florida for violating the constitutional rights of young adults between the ages of 18-21.”

She added, “The gun control provisions in this bill do not enhance school safety. They merely punish law-abiding citizens for the actions of a mentally ill murderer as well as the failure of government officials who did not do their jobs.”

The Tallahassee Democrat reports that the NRA filed suit one hour after Gov. Scott signed the gun control.

From THIS article!
"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves."
William Pitt, British Prime-Minister (1759-1806)

I'll have to go back and check my pocket Constitution. I must have missed the ammendment that the consumption of alcohol is a right.

I remember when I was 19 and I held a rifle for 15 minutes. I was so f*cked up I fell over, puked and got in the car and drove home drunk.

You will also not the right to air or water, but check the declaration of Independence, something about pursuit of happiness, I think the pure definition of alcohol, maybe related to inalienable rights, and finally, and in this context we are just out and out age discrimination arbitrarily?

Get back to us with your results, Scot and Fla are waiting.

And I quote, "all powers not deligated to the United States by the constitution".
This isn't a 10th amendment issue.

Get back to us after you've actually read the constitution.

Trump administration just moved ahead with banning bump stocks.

Will the NRA sue?

18 is the legal age ! That is the problem. Why can an 18 year old be in the military and do what they do there?
Make 21 or higher the legal age. Then no more 18 year olds enlist or get drafted period. They can remain as little children till they reach the proper age, and wow how many dads paying child support will like that?

Doubtful because at that point it's a federal law. Same with making the age 21. It's a federal decision not a state decision because it falls under the constitution. Same reason an individual state couldn't change laws on slavery.

Republicans have long been proponents of states rights, individual rights, and a small federal govt.

The NRA suing a state deciding its own laws goes against that very core conservative principle.

It's a slippery slope for the GOP. 2 core beliefs are fighting each other right now.

Yeah, it'll be an interesting situation if they move the age to 21 on a federal level.
