Florida Assault Weapons Ban

Here come the politicians dancing in the blood of the Vegas victims to advance an agenda, as always. The proposed Florida law would make it illegal, as of July 1, 2018:
- to own nearly all semiautomatics.
- to own a magazine that holds more than 7 rounds
- a person who can prove that they owned such a weapon or magazine before October 1, 2017 can still own it, but must apply for a license for each such weapon or magazine. (No word on how much this will cost)
If a person doesn't have a license, they must sell it to a dealer, or turn it over to the police.
- the law also says that gun shows can only be held by or under the supervision of police
Violating this law will be a felony.

1 How is backdating the day to October 1 NOT ex post facto? 
2 Hopefully this will die in committee. 
3 Keep an eye on this one.

I'm sure average people in Florida bought all those guns just so they won't feel left out, and they'll have something to turn in on amnesty day.

I think this same law was proposed last year, too. I remember thinking it read exactly like the Bloomberg laws in one of the western states. Nevada?

The Senate web page you link to says it was posted 8/22/2017 @ 2:17 PM
