Last year, Governor Scott signed into law, numerous great gun safety bills. This year, he seems to have caved into NRA pressure. All he did was veto a sensible bill to require a waiting period of 24 hours after purchasing a gun. Very disappointing.
A good bill that got vetoed by Governor Scott
- Senate Bill 169 would have required a waiting period or a “cooling-off” period of 24 hours before receiving a gun. 👍
Two NRA bills that failed
- Senate 1 would allow, during competitions, ammunition magazines holding more rounds of ammunition than normal. Currently, the limit is 10 for assault rifles and 15 for handguns. 👎
- Senate 2 and the similar Senate 13 would allow families to keep their large capacity ammunition magazines and pass them on to their children. 👎
