Florida Gun Owners Camping Out for Chance to Buy Ammunition!
Gun owners in central Florida began camping out as early as 2 a.m. Monday in order to enter Lake Mary’s Academy Sporting Goods for ammunition when doors opened at 9:00 a.m.
Fox 11 reports that campers voiced concern over President-elect Joe Biden’s anticipated gun control push and wanted to stock up on ammunition while they still could.
One Floridian, David Godkin, said, “I think we all believe Biden is going to take it away from us too.”
Godkin also outlined the places he plans to go throughout the week for ammo, saying, “I just come here on Monday. Tuesday, I go to Buena Vista. Wednesday, I go to East Colonial. Thursday, Buena Vista. Friday, East Colonial. Sunday, I go to Millenia.”
The demand for guns and ammunition soared throughout 2020 and is now in earnest with Biden’s gun control proposals looming. The Orlando Sentinel notes that Florida’s Volusia Top Gun had a line of “60 people waiting in front of the store” prior to the doors opening on Sunday, but that is tip of the iceberg.
The demand for ammunition has been so strong since the election that ammunition manufacturers simply cannot keep inventory on hand, according to Bearing Arms.
#2APurge: Demorats wasting no time in going after guns
This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one: Demorats are already paving the way to erode our Second Amendment rights.
The text of the bill in a nutshell: “Prohibiting the sale or transfer of an assault weapon or a large-capacity magazine; providing criminal penalties; prohibiting possession of an assault weapon or a large-capacity magazine; requiring certificates of possession for assault weapons or large-capacity magazines lawfully possessed before a specified date; requiring the Department of Law Enforcement to maintain a file of such certificates, etc.”
The full text of the bill is here. Excerpts from the bill:
“Assault weapon means any selective-fire firearm capable of fully automatic, semiautomatic, or burst fire at the option of the user or any of the following specified semiautomatic firearms: list includes all AK and AR series, and a whole list of other manufacturers.”
“A part or combination of parts which converts a firearm into an assault weapon or any combination of parts from which an assault weapon may be assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person.”
“A semiautomatic rifle that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has one or more of the following: includes everything under the sun, including a bayonet mount.”
Guns & Gadgets has a video summarizing the bill:
Buckle up, folks. Not only will the demorats be empowered under the #notmypresident Biden administration to squash the First Amendment, they will go after the Second Amendment too.
