NRA Sues State of Florida To Stop Rick Scott and Rubio’s Gun Grab

Published

on

The National Rifle Association (NRA) filed suit Friday against the state of Florida after Republican Governor Rick Scott signed a gun control bill spearheaded by the state’s Marco Rubio-aligned Republican House speaker.

The NRA claims that it violates the constitutional rights of persons aged 18 to 21 because the law prohibits those under 21 from buying rifles. Thus, 18 year olds can use a rifle to defend the United States at war but can’t have one to protect themselves back at home in Florida.

The case could end up going to the Supreme Court, or it could also get some publicity and just go nowhere.

The new Florida law also imposes a three-day waiting period to purchase rifles, a bump stock ban, and expanded mental health background checks.

The bill was pushed for by Richard Corcoran, a Rubio ally who leads the Republicans in the state House. Corcoran is running for governor against Congressman Ron DeSantis, who quietly criticized gun control measures but did not really do anything to fight against the bill.

As Big League Politics reported, Corcoran was threatening legislators that they would lose money for their districts if they did not pass the bill.

Some Republicans are upset that Corcoran tied the school safety policies to the gun control policies. A school safety bill introduced by Republicans would have passed with probably 100 percent support. But Corcoran decided to put forward a package bill with gun control elements in it.

WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”

That kind of experience is unmatched.

Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.

Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.

It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.

However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
