Gungrabber Asininity Strikes Again!


Via Fox News:

A Florida legislator wants anyone trying to buy ammunition to complete an anger management program first, in what critics say is the latest example of local lawmakers reaching for constitutionally-dubious solutions to the problem of gun violence.

The bill filed Saturday by state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, would require a three-day waiting period for the sale of any firearm and the sale of ammunition to anyone who has not completed anger management courses. The proposal would require ammo buyers to take the anger management courses every 10 years.

“This is not about guns," Gibson said. "This is about ammunition and not only for the safety of the general community, but also for the safety of law enforcement.”

Gibson said she’s concerned with citizens stockpiling ammunition, potentially creating dangerous situations should those individuals ever come in contact with law enforcement agencies or criminals.

“It’s about getting people to think, really, about how much ammunition they need,” Gibson said. “It’s a step, I think, in a safer direction. It’s about getting people to think before they buy.”

Will those wishing to exercise their First Amendment right to burn the American flag or tell the government to "Fuck off!" also be required to attend anger management classes first?

How about making voters take literacy tests before they can vote, after all poll taxes and such have never been ruled unconstitutional or anything (sarc)?

Better idea:  How about we mandate legislators attend constitutional history and law classes, along with INSANITY MANAGEMENT COURSES????
