A group called “Constitutional Campaigns” is paying people $1.25/per signature obtained, on a petition for a constitutional amendment that looks to BAN legally owned semi-automatic firearms in Florida. This amendment has been proposed for the state’s 2020 ballot.
The amendment was pushed forward by Ban Assault Weapons NOW (also known as BAWN), a Miami-based political action committee that includes victims’ family members and survivors of the mass shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018 and the gay nightclub Pulse in 2016.
This petition looks to force an amendment that is in direct violation of the 2nd Amendment, which states: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
It does not get any more black and white than SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Since the Parkland shooting, Florida legislators have raised the age to purchase a firearm to 21 years old, extended the waiting period before a person who purchases a firearm can take possession of it, banned a piece of plastic (bump stocks), given police officers the ability to seize lawfully owned firearms and ammunition a person may be carrying, and seek the voluntary surrender of other firearms and ammunition kept in their residence, under the Baker Act, and passed the illegal and unconstitutional extreme risk prevention order (ERPO) that is more commonly known as a Red Flag Law. All this is taking place after ten Florida cities launched an attack looking to overturn the state’s law barring them from enacting local rules regulating firearms in 2018.
No longer can those of us that enjoy the 2nd Amendment be the “Silent Majority”! Whether we are shooters, hunters, or we carry for self-defense, we must stay vigilant and be aware of what the machine that looks to disarm Americans is trying to do. The more we know as a community, the more we can stay on top of the anti-gunners attempts at destroying our inalienable rights, especially our right to defend ourselves and our loved ones!
Throughout our history, every successful constitutional amendment regarding American rights, minus Prohibition, has been about expanding our rights. Now there is a focused movement of passing amendments that look to limit our rights. With blatant unconstitutional attacks being lobbied in cities and towns all over this great country, it is very difficult to stay in-the-know with what is going on day-to-day.
