Florida Supreme Court Rejects Proposal to Ban “Assault Weapons”
As riots ravage America’s cities and police departments are having their budgets slashed and ranks thinned, gun control measures are still being advanced that would deprive law-abiding citizens the right to self-defense.
One such measure was thankfully prevented in our State of Florida on Thursday June 4th, 2020 in which the Florida Supreme Court ruled that a proposed constitutional amendment seeking to ban possession of assault-style weapons does not meet requirements to go before voters this year.
There were only 200 petitions (not a typo, only 200 petitions) submitted to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office for review as part of a ballot initiative to put on the 2020 election ballot to ban the sale of “military-grade” weapons.
The Florida Supreme Court, by a vote of 4 to 1, struck down the weakly supported proposed amendment citing “misleading” language in the proposal as it failed to distinguish between the weapon itself and the owner’s possession of the weapon.
