Florida Proposes Ban on ALL Semiautomatic Rifles: Here’s What You Need to Know

Florida’s Ballot Measure Seeks to Ban All Semiautos

…and it has potential for passing!

Tallahassee – A group named, “BAWN” (Ban Assault Weapons Now) is in full force of the legal process required to amend the Florida constitution to ban all semiautomatic rifles.

The measure would ban possession of all semiautomatic rifles and shotguns.

SHOCK: You’ll NEVER Guess Who is Behind This Legislation

Revealed in the video below!

How does BAWN define “assault weapon?”

Semiautomatic would be defined by the measure as “any weapon which fires a single projectile or a number of ball shots through a rifled or smooth bore for each single function of the trigger without further manual action required.”

Assault weapon would be defined by the measure as “any semiautomatic rifle or shotgun capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in a fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

If a person lawfully owned an assault weapon before the measure’s effective date, their ownership of such weapon would still be legal for one year after the measure’s effective date.

What organizations are supporting this ban?

  • Americans For Gun Safety Now
  • Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
  • Florida American Academy of Pediatrics
  • Florida National Council of Jewish Women
  • Florida PTA
  • Florida Veterans For Common Sense
  • League of Women Voters
  • March For Our Lives
  • Newtown Action Alliance
  • Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami

What is the process BAWN must follow to amend Florida’s constitution and ban all semiautomatic rifles?

BAWN is attempting to use the “voter initiative” process – which requires:

  1. By voter initiative, as a proposed amendment to appear on the ballot. By law, any such amendment 1) is limited to a single subject, 2) must include a ballot title not to exceed 15 words in length, 3) must also include a ballot summary not to exceed 75 words in length, and 4) must further include a financial impact statement not to exceed 75 words in length.

How many signatures are needed?

To place a constitutional amendment on the ballot, proponents must collect signatures equal to 8 percent of the total number of votes cast in the last presidential election.

That means that in order to get an amendment changed voted on, BAWN needs to get 766,200 signatures.

  1. In my opinion, banning semi-automatic weapons would be a mistake. It is a great weapon for self defense. If you call the police it would take minutes for them to arrive. During this time the home owner could easily be killed. If you have a semi-automatic weapon you could even the playing field.
    There is a chance you won’t need to shoot. If the criminal could leave, at which time you get the description and pass it on to the police. No shots fired.
    Owning a weapon is a great responsibility. Make sure all steps in the background check are completed is one way of making sure that the buyer is able to own a weapon. A criminal does not care about background checks. He will get one from the black market. Banning them is just going to unarmed the law abiding citizens. Please consider this when you vote. Thank you.
