On Thursday, Florida State Senator Audrey Gibson (D-Jacksonville) introduced a bill, which if passed, would require anyone who wishes to purchase ammunition to complete an "anger-management program," prior to doing so.
SB 1678 states:
Requiring a 3-day waiting period for the sale of any firearm; prohibiting the sale of ammunition to a person who has not completed an anger-management program; requiring certification of completion of an anger-management program to be renewed every 10 years; providing criminal penalties, etc.
If signed into law, violators would face a second-degree misdemeanor charge for the first offense. Each subsequent violation of the law would be elevated to a first-degree misdemeanor.
Fox News reported:
“It’s about getting people to think, really, about how much ammunition they need,” Gibson said. “It’s a step, I think, in a safer direction. It’s about getting people to think before they buy."
Gibson first announced her intentions to introduce such legislation last month during a rally for Davis, saying “people are just not as patient as they used to be,” according to the Florida Times-Union.
“We see the rage on the road all the time,” she continued Wednesday. “People are just more impatient, I don’t know what it is.”
Of course, Sen. Gibson is yet to voice any concerns over "how much ammunition" the federal government has purchased over the last few months...Hint: It's 2 billion rounds of hollow points!
