Florida Bump Stock Ban Goes Into Effect

Florida Bump Stock Ban Goes Into Effect

There are 45 comments on the FindLaw story from Oct 12, 2018, titled Florida Bump Stock Ban Goes Into Effect. In it, FindLaw reports that:

Back in March, Florida passed significant gun control legislation just a month after the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Part of that legislation, the ban on possession of bump stocks, went into effect on October 1. "You could have purchased a bump stock a week ago, a year ago, or two years ago," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told WFLA , "but possession of it after October 1 is a felony."

" "when you fire the gun, the stock cocks the gun and lets you fire it again without squeezing the trigger."

If you are so stupid that you don't understand the mechanics of bump stocks and guns in general, you should keep your idiocy to youself.

Even with a bump stock, your finger is pulling the trigger each round fired. On a semi-auto the trigger must be released to reset or you cannot fire it again. There are hundreds of thousands of BS in the country. There has been ONE crime committed using them.

Gun owners should be dropping off their illegal bump devices, bump dowel rods, bump belt loops, bump rubber bands etc. to the elected officials that passed the unenforceable knee-jerk feels good bump-stock ban.

Don't forget fingers. Many people can bump-fire using a normal shouldered rifle, using nothing other than a finger since it is a technique. They also forgot to ban shoelaces and key rings.

Of course if you look at the project veritas videos of mccaskill and her staff, you see the absolute LIES dems are telling voters in a lame attempt to hide their true views/beliefs, which in this case are ban on BS, all semi-autos, and then all handguns. Dems have to lie to get elected and their clueless voters are gullible enough to believe their lies.

Has anyone seen any news or crowing from anti-gunners that bump stock owners are turning in their bump stocks?

Connecticut, maryland, NY, all got about 80-90% refusal to comply with their AWBs and idiotic gun control laws. The bump stock (used in only ONE CRIME EVER) is the dumbest one they have done. Bump "fire" is easy using a number of techniques, including belt loops, shoelaces, etc.

I suspect most people will refuse to comply or turn in anything or register their weapons from here on out anyway especially after this California man thought he was doing the law abiding thing. Then these politicians in government wonder why people don’t trust them.

Ignorance is no excuse! Especially when we are addressing weapons. Failure to comply shall and will be prosecuted! But since you don't own any weapons, there is nothing for you to be concerned about. Correct?

So someone actually decided to go along with law, gets screwed over and you're ok with it? Are you just being an idiot again?

Unconstitutional laws aren't "laws" to begin with. Again, how are you going "legally" enforce any of these so called laws? You can't even answer that much and remember, "ignorance is no excuse!"

It is ok, like the recent CA gun laws that were overturned, ALL new gun control will be unconstitutional with the new trump court. So your musings are just that and mean nothing. If you had any cajones, you would step up and volunteer to help collect banned guns. Please do that.

The current laws are rarely being enforced. Why do you have your panties in a knot over a new law? If they enforce it at the same rate as they do with law pertaining to lying on an ATF 4473 they might prosecute one a year - maybe.

You talk like you have a set. Do you? You hardly defend your statements when challenged.

Let me educate you and others on where panties in a knot oriented from:
The Basil Brush Show, a British television program started in the late 60s. From there, the Australians turned the original expression “don’t get your knickers in a twist” into “don’t get your knickers in a knot”. There you have it mate! Some water cooler talk for Monday morning at the office!
Over and over I read: "The current laws are rarely being enforced". Well yes, you are partly correct. We can implement many creative ways to insure compliance.You may not like, but since we have 10s of thousands deaths from a bullet, then things going to change.

You lost this battle. You just aren't savvy enough to realize it. The actual people who believe in civil rights waaaayyyyy outnumber the gestapo brown shirts on your side. The courts are striking down new gun control and most new gun laws EXPAND gun rights as we have put majorities in most states to control them.

There are also creative ways to deal with your ilk. What you have obviously overlooked in your quest to take away rights from law-abiding citizens is that the vast majority of gun crimes, gun violations, illegal guns, murders, etc., are committed by DEMOCRATS like you!!! AND the vast majority of victims of murders are democrats. More laws and more enforcement simply mean more democrat supporters being put in prison. It isn't middle age white guys committing murders and gun crimes, except rarely. Do you think the hundreds of shootings in chicago and other dem-run cesspools are committed by 50+ seniors? Most are millennial losers on your side. Not ours.

Dems/left keep pushing for another civil war with their hatred. One side has trillions of rounds of ammo, hundreds of million guns, and tens of millions of trained veterans, cops, etc. The other side cannot even decide which bath room to go to. How do you think that is going to turn out?

I am not surprised that you are an expert on wearing panties. You certainly know nothing about security, self-defense, or guns. And on the original topic, if someone decides they need a bump stock, it takes about 30 minutes to make one (the one on my desk took me 32 minutes, but I had some parts to start with and wanted it to look nice), although other techniques work just as well with even less. The Va Tech shooter ONLY used 10-round magazines and handguns. When nobody has a gun to stop you a baseball bat works well.

"Failure to comply shall and will be prosecuted!" Funny - so can you explain why the previous AWBs passed by MD, CT, RI, NY, etc., have had very low compliance rates and nobody is getting arrested? What do you see changing that pattern in the future? 4% compliance in new york? https://hudsonvalleyone.com/2016/07/07/massiv...

The dirty little secret of gun control is that many LEOs won't enforce what they consider to be unconstitutional gun control laws and they haven't been. And most people with half a brain realize that going after a type of gun used in like <0.5% of all murders which is the most popular type of guns sold (and 25- 50 million in circulation) isn't going to fix the problem with democrats murdering each other in our country.

Partly correct? Calling out a 0.044% prosecution rate for lying on ATF Form is a bit more than "partly correct."

The only way to insure compliance is by enforcing the law. Are you proposing a law to enforce laws?

And all of the "changes" your side has made so far has done not one thing to the criminal side. they would be the ones that cause the problems. If you pull suicides out of your statistics you no longer have 10s of thousands of deaths from a bullet. What are you doing about this?

I just educated you on how naïve you really are.

When these stupid anti-gun bureaucratic pinheads keep moving the illegal gun control compliance goal posts does ignorance of the law have anything to do with it really? What they did was teach other law abiding citizens that to do the right thing could result in a felony charge? As an American law abiding citizen everyone including you should be very concerned with their underhanded gun control tactics. BTW truly proves that gun control laws only affect the law abiding, wonder how many criminals registered their weapons. Question for you is if you had a similar weapon that requires being illegally registered, would you register it after what they did to this man? If you feel I require having a weapon to be an American citizen and comment on any issues, please check next month’s firearm purchase NICS check numbers and be proud you helped me over the precipice on indecision to purchase a couple three firearms.

BTW your asinine comment goes both ways, since you don't own any weapons; there is nothing for you to be concerned about either. Correct? But here you are!

“We can implement many creative ways to insure compliance.” Will these creative methods be constitutionally legal or do you anti-gunners plan to suspend or do away with the U.S.C. and BOR? BTW how will you enforce these creative methods you dream of?

You're definitely one to talk about educating, aren't you?

How is it "partly" correct. If all current laws were being enforced, prosecutions followed through with and law enforcement agencies doing their jobs, maybe we wouldn't be discussing half this stuff! On the other hand, people like yourself would still want to see rights taken away from law abiding citizens without regard to the Constitution. And you'd still cry about current gun laws.
