‘Just Kidding’: Florida Senate Bans AR-15 Sales, Flip Flops Minutes Later

‘Just Kidding’: Florida Senate Bans AR-15 Sales, Flip Flops Minutes Later

State senators in Florida had imposed a ban on the sale of semi-automatic rifles like the one used during the February 14 school shooting spree; the ban lasted all of 15 minutes before it was swiftly rescinded by the very people who passed it in the first place.

The sales of AR-15 semi-automatic rifles in the state of Florida were nearly subjected to a two-year long moratorium when the state legislators first adopted the ban, before scrapping it almost immediately, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The motion was passed during an “unrecorded voice vote in which senators shouted yea or nay.” However, even though the senate president ruled that the amendment had passed, it was reconsidered and overturned in 15 minutes via a 21-17 roll call vote.

As the Hill points out, each ‘no’ vote was cast by a Republican senator.

If the Public Shouldn’t Have Them, Why Does the IRS Need AR-15s?

Military vs Feds

If the Public Shouldn’t Have Them, Why Does the IRS Need AR-15s?:

Here we go again. Stuck in the aftermath of a horrific shooting and all politicians think to do is scheme about how to take more rights from the citizenry. There are no good guys here. The Democrats want to railroad over due process by denying firearms to people on Orwellian watch lists, while Republicans plot to give the FBI more warrantless surveillance powers. This is the authoritarian knee-jerk response to tragedy we get from the U.S Congress.

Hypocritically, when it comes to foreign policy, all we hear are incessant calls for more militarism, more war and more regime change. As I warned in yesterday’s post, Is the Syrian War About to Experience a Major Escalation?  51 State Department officials just issued a cable calling for the bombing of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad. An event likely to lead to direct confrontation with Russia.

Gun Shop Sells 30,000 AR-15s in Week Following Orlando Attack

Gun Shop Sells 30,000 AR-15s in Week Following Orlando Attack:

It’s been a week since the terrorist attack on an Orlando nightclub that left 49 dead and 53 wounded. Since then, the sale of AR-15 rifles has soared in gun stores across the country, Fox Business reported.

Hunter’s Warehouse Owner Tom Engle told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney Saturday that his online gun shop, which carries an inventory of 300,000 to 400,000 weapons, has sold 30,000 AR-15s since Sunday.

A Federal Firearms License (FFL) permits gun store owners to import firearms and ammunition across the United States. Even though each state has its own gun laws, Engle explained how it would be possible to buy an AR-15 online.

“You would have the firearm shipped to an FFL [agency] in your home state because every state is different and then we would ship that FFL firearms agency in your home state and they would be responsible to do the paperwork for you in your home state,” he said.

Hillary and Obama Want “Weapon of War” Ar-15 Banned After Orlando Shooting

Hillary and Obama Want “Weapon of War” Ar-15 Banned After Orlando Shooting:

Now might be a good time to invest in a manufacturer that makes the AR-15… their stock is probably about to skyrocket. Why?

The president and the woman scheming to become president today are both calling for them to be banned.

Following the already highly politicized Orlando mass shooting that reportedly left 49 people dead and another 50+ wounded, Hillary has come out to say that the “weapon of war” used in the attack should be banned completely.

Obama Bans Ammo For The Most Popular Rifle In America

If you like your guns, you can keep them

The War On Preppers: Obama Bans Ammo For The Most Popular Rifle In America (Economic Collapse, Feb 26, 2015):

Because he can’t get Congress to approve the things that he wants to do, Barack Obama has apparently decided to rule by decree for the rest of his time in the White House.  One of Obama’s latest moves is to try to ban some of the most popular ammunition for the most popular rifle in America.  Previously, the Obama administration attempted unsuccessfully to ban the AR-15.  That didn’t work, so now Obama is going after the ammunition.  This is yet another example of the war on preppers that is going on all over the nation.  Whether you are a gun owner or not, this assault on our constitutional rights should disturb you greatly.  Barack Obama has promised to try to squeeze as much “change” as possible out of his last two years, and in the process he is “fundamentally transforming” America.  But what will our country look like when he is done?

At the top of the Drudge Report today, there was a story from the Washington Examiner detailing this ammo ban…

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

SWAT Raids Soldier’s Home After DHS Agent Mistook His Air Rifle for an AR-15 (The Daily Sheeple, Feb 23, 2014):

A SWAT team complete with armored truck and dozens of police vehicles stormed the Houston area street where an active duty soldier lived last week because a homeland security agent misidentified the vet’s air rifle.

Twenty-five-year-old Ramon Hooks, back from a tour in Iraq, was shooting at targets in his backyard. He had the misfortune to accidentally fire a pellet through the window of a home for sale that a DHS agent just happened to be looking to buy at that moment. One phone call later, and two nearby schools were put on lockdown as the full force of the law descended the suburban neighborhood.
