Florida’s Semi-Auto Rifle Ban Gaining Ground With Republican Donor’s Support

Florida’s Semi-Auto Rifle Ban Gaining Ground With Republican Donor’s Support

Quote:
As we reported earlier, there is a push to pass an “assault weapons” ban in Florida via a ballot initiative to amend the state constitution. This is being spearheaded by Ban Assault Weapons NOW (BAWN), a bipartisan group of gun-grabbers made up of Republican and Democrat authoritarians who want to see law-abiding Floridians disarmed.

Now their effort is gaining political ground and financial support.

Republican Party big wig donor Al Hoffman has joined the fray. After Parkland, he announced that he wouldn’t support any Republican candidate unless they back gun control. Republican officials like Rep. Brian Mast folded like a cheap suit.

Now Hoffman is throwing his money behind BAWN’s efforts.

I think they always do that they go looking through all the generals and Admirals they can just to try and find the few who agree with them. The one guy Suddath they mentioned has got to be in his 80s by now and probably retired before the Berlin Wall even fell. Not that age should be a disqualifier for a respectable opinion but I'm just saying that's how far back they must be going to look to find people to sign on to this.

It's okay. They can just move to another state.

Perhaps folks shouldnt depend on states that have become refuges for Northeast liberals to protect their gun rights. Just look where folks fleeing these heavy regulatory, heavy tax, horrible gun law states to, and don't move there. Florida, Colorado, Texas, they'll all be overrun in a decade with the current demographic displacement trend.

Definitely not a group of current GOV, military, or entertainment industry A-listers there.
