Prince Harry has reportedly sold a $60K collection of hunting rifles at the behest of his wife, Meghan Markle, who dislikes hunting and her husband’s involvement in the sport.
The prince began selling off his collection of rifles, which includes historical antiques, about five months ago. He had decided to quit the practice of hunting entirely because Markle dislikes the sport. At least two rifles were sold off to a hunter in Britain, who later learned that the prince had been compelled to sell them at the urging of his wife.
Harry had been a regular sportsman in the past, even engaging in hunting in unusual animals in South America and Africa.
The royal couple has largely renounced most of their titles and privileges, claiming to have been victimized by the constant inquiries of the British tabloid press. They’re since relocated to Los Angeles, and hope to reinvent themselves as American-style celebrities independent of the British royal family.
President Trump has rejected insinuations that the American government pay for a private security detail for the celebrity royal couple, all but ensuring they’ll rely upon private, armed security in order to safeguard themselves from the public. Fortunately for them, American attitudes toward private gun ownership are far more permissive.
Assault Weapons Ban Ballot Initiative Blocked From Florida Ballot by State Supreme Court
It won’t be on the ballot.
A ballot initiative seeking to ban so-called assault weapons in Florida was blocked from being placed on the ballot by the Florida Supreme Court on Thursday, being thrown out for failing to concisely describe the provisions of its grandfather proposal.
The ballot initiative had been sponsored by a group called Ban Assault Weapons Now. It was slated to be voted upon in the 2022 Florida elections, and would’ve criminalized the ownership of commonly owned rifles such as the AR-15.
However, the ballot initiative was thrown out by the state supreme court on the basis of its deceptive language. The ban contains a ‘grandfather’ provision that enables some gun owners to keep their weapons. But it’s unlike other ‘grandfather’ provisions inserted into other gun control packages, applying directly to the gun owners themselves rather than the firearms. Thus, a grandfathered gun owner could not legally transfer his rifle to someone who didn’t already have one, should the ballot initiative have passed.
The 4-1 Supreme Court ruling striking down the ballot initiative argued that the language it used was misleading and deceptive.
“While the ballot summary purports to exempt registered assault weapons lawfully possessed prior to the Initiative’s effective date, the Initiative does not categorically exempt the assault weapon, only the current owner’s possession of that assault weapon. The ballot summary is therefore affirmatively misleading.”
Gun control organizer Gail Schwarz went on to blame the NRA for the ruling, ignoring that the ballot initiative’s language regarding the grandfather clause was misleading and differed considerably from the clauses enacted by other anti-gun states.
It’s more than possible that Bloomberg-funded gun control groups could set up another assault weapons ban ballot initiative without the shady language that could be reintroduced, if Ban Assault Weapons Now gets enough petition signatures to reinsert it on the ballot before the 2022 election deadline.
