Florida Lawmaker Introduces Bill to Protect State from Biden’s Anti-Gun Agenda

It’s no secret that President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris want to disarm America

With Democrats controlling both chambers, it’s not a matter of if Congress enacts new gun control, it’s really a matter of when.  

Sure, sure, pro-gun Republicans can filibuster in the Senate and probably stave off the more radical pieces of legislation the Dems put forth, for example that mandatory licensing and registration bill (H.R. 127) will probably never see the light of day.    

But lower hanging fruits like criminalizing private transfers and giving the FBI 10 business days to process “delayed” NICS background checks (instead of the current three business days) stand a better than 50 percent chance of becoming law, one can argue. 

In preparation for this eventuality, states and counties around the country have, over the years, declared themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries.”  Which means, they will not recognize any federal gun laws that infringe on a citizen’s Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Florida Rep. Jason Shoaf (HD-7) is the latest to propose such a measure, HM 1301.  While several Florida counties have adopted sanctuary status, Shoaf wants to see it happen state-wide.  

“The Second Amendment is a right and freedom on which our nation was founded. The President’s proposed restrictions violate our U.S. Constitution,” said Rep. Shoaf in a press released obtained by GunsAmerica. “What’s more, these actions limit our ability to keep our families safe.”

Shoaf contends that state sovereignty provided by the Tenth Amendment and affirmed by the Supreme Court prohibits the Fed from forcing Floridians to adopt any Biden-approved gun-control scheme.  

“I want to be clear. Should the Federal Government establish any measure to infringe upon the right to keep and bear arms, I fully intend to do all in my power to ensure the State of Florida’s authority is hard at work to resist any unconstitutional gun measures,” said Rep. Shoaf. “That is exactly what this memorial declares.” 

A companion bill (SM 1630) to HM 1301 has been introduced in the Senate by Sen. Travis Hutson. Both bills will now head to committees for review and evaluation.  

If passed by the Florida Legislature, a copy of the memorial will be sent to President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and to each member of the Florida’s Congressional delegation.

    SLIM your parents failed you BIG TIME… As a person trump is not the best role model, but his policies were some of the best our country has EVER had. We currently have open borders under Biden, 5,500 illegals INVADING our states. Asylum seekers no longer have to wait in their home countries, they can walk right on down our streets never to be seen again. No one knows who these people are or what intentions they have. What slim do you really believe that these swamp living politicians all live clean lives? You think it’s ok for swallwell to sleep with a known Chinese spy and not only keep his job but still sit on the National security committee? What about replacing the Obama/ Biden ridiculous NAFTA agreement with a real trade agreement slim? Yeah trump did that. Haven NATO pay up, piece in the Middle East. Sorry slim that you sucked up the toxic corrupt agenda that was regurgitated 24/7 by those anti American news channels. How about the thousands of hard working Americans that are currently jobless all because Biden was told to cancel the pipeline? Those are fellow Americans slim, who for no reason other then political BS are now suffering. Oh wait John Kerry will have them all building solar panels in China in a few months, yeah great plan. And if you want to be a real man and be honest, Biden hasn’t held an open press conference since taking office , why is that it’s because the man I’m not capable PERIOD. Biden is a few clowns short of a circus and that is not a secret anymore, it can’t be denied. So slim a man saying some sexual things about women , sure they can be a little unsettling for a moment, but go into any 7th -12th grade boys locker room and what is discussed every day is much worse then what trump got caught saying. Slim it’s pass time for you and the Anti American cancel culture society wrecking frauds to find some patriotism and so what’s best for the country. Because the way things are going under Biden will destroy the American family and our most basic principles.

    Republicans propose A Gun Safety Law to standardize, and simplify National Gun Laws to include:
    1. National NICS Background Check to include all questionable mental, social, and physical health care issues that could questions the public safety of others, were a person owning a firearm be a threat to the public. This be an additional check and balance to felony convictions and domestic disturbance records.

    2. Mandatory 30 year sentence for firearms used in a crime.

    3. Standardized gun safety classes for all 8th grade students in schools

    4. Standardized gun safety classes for all citizens wishing to obtain a firearm.

    5. Government reward all firearm owners for owning and being effective with a Firearm for National defense reasons. To be always able to take action on obvious criminals, and enemy invaders. $200 annual bonus for being effective using your firearm at a standard approved National Range.

    6. National concealed carry license recognized universally by all states and marked on all state drivers licenses. 2nd Amendment rights respected by all States wishing to be a part of the United States of America. If you pay federal taxes, you are a part of America tied together by the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution.

    7. All modern day traditionally used firearms of semi-automatic, pump, lever, revolver, single shot, action type allowed

    The threat to the 2nd Amendment are the politician’s who are in Washington D. C. That swore the oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. It would likely to turn into a real disaster if the domestic side, so called leaders decide to become the enemies of the United States from within its own false unconstitutional execution actions and unconstitutional legislation.

    What does this law specifically say?

  • David Baker March 6, 2021, 2:03 am

    All states should be submitting something similar on behalf of the people; why isn’t Texas doing this??

  • Gunny Wheeler March 5, 2021, 10:29 am

    GOD BLESS TRUMP , BUT TRUMP can’t it alone! If your right to own guns is important then your VOTE is 75, 000,000 MORE important. I’m truly afraid this turmoil will end only with massive bloodshed and guns , our guns, will decide the outcome.
    The dems will push us until they get the WAR they want….within the borders of the U S. I hope and pray the dems realize , if they continue the push towards socialism we will have No WAY OUT but to kill them.

        Obviously, you have some baggage to deal with. The man has his own personal feelings. Your feelings dont need to be crammed down his throat. I tell ya one thing, if it ever comes down to what Gunny says, I really would appreciate it if you werent around me if and when the fighting starts. Really not needing a emotional wreck being around me at the time. Take care my fellow countryman

      • B rad March 8, 2021, 7:23 am

        TDS much? I suppose that you supported the “Hair sniffer in chief”. I believe that you need to get a life or not. Suicide is an option for you, possibly public service to the rest of us.

      • Stephen March 8, 2021, 2:42 pm

        That gone and never to return remark may be a bit premature… If 75 million plus and others that are having buyers remorse see after four years of stupidity and degradation that Trump was not the problem but the solution? Buddy… You got problems. If Trump decides to throw his hat in again? He’ll own it!

  • JERRY S March 5, 2021, 9:04 am

    As a Floridian, I hope this passes and DeSantis signs it poste haste.

  • Brian Neuberger March 5, 2021, 8:32 am

    I always thought that our fairly (yeah right) elected officials were there to protect the citizens and the Constitution of the United States of America. One Nation under GOD. Somethin don’t smell so good here! Long live Trump. God bless Texas and Florida.

  • Robert DeWitt March 5, 2021, 6:24 am

    All politicians who violate or attempt to violate the Constitution have to be forcefully removed from office. Forcefully meaning removed by the
    Proper authorities and Legal Courts.
    Apparently the voters can’t do it by voting them out of office because of
    All the voting fraud that’s been set in place, if you want to express your opinion then they classify you as a domestic terrorist. Apparently you cannot have Love for your country and the and the freedom it was founded on.

    • FirstStateMark March 5, 2021, 3:11 pm

      Remove a Democrat? Who will do that? Not the Republicans! The Republican party is the party of do nothing as I quote from Donald Trump Jr. Look whats happen to Hillary. NOTHING! Faking documents for the Steele dossier, NOTHING , lying to the judges in the FISA court to try to convict Trump, NOTHING. Any of us would be in jail right now. These fucking Republicans do NOTHING against the DEMS who have broken the law.
