Florida Bill Would Require Background Checks for Ammunition


Florida Representative Dan Daley filed a “common sense” gun reform bill that would require background checks to be run on anyone purchasing ammunition.

Dubbed “Jaime’s Law” after Jamie Guttenberg, who lost her life in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting in Florida in 2018, the bill is said to aim to keep ammunition out of the hands of those who intend to kill.

Have any of you purchased a gun recently?

The numbers say you likely have. How long was your wait? Twenty plus day waits are not uncommon right now with gun purchases. If Daley gets his way, you could be seeing the same wait times, or more, for ammunition as well.

“With approximately 400,000,000 weapons already on the streets, we must make it harder for those who intend to kill to do so... We must close this ammunition loophole and this bill is a step in the right direction to do it... Jaime’s Law will help save lives immediately.”

The bill doesn't likely have a good chance of passing but, who knows, right now about anything could happen.

  1. Way to go Dan. Punish ten million of your peaceable, lawful neighbors to salve your guilty self. You know as well as the rest of us that all those Stoneman kids would be alive today if only one armed citizen had been allowed on the campus.

    Ammunition is not a loophole. It’s part of the armed citizenry that makes America uniquely great. You’re obviously very stupid on the subject. The only way you’ll disarm America is to kill more than a hundred million of your countrymen — the ones you don’t trust.

    Floridians will punish you at the polls if you’re successful in this stupid goal.

  2. This guy should be found and like any rabid dog, put out of his misery…
    Usually a bullet behind the left ear will do it

  3. Why not have background checks for buying gasoline after all over 30,000 people are killed each year on our highways!

  4. Lets understand something. NOTHING WILL STOP PEOPLE FROM BEING EVIL. HAS ANY LAW CAUSED ANYONE TO NOT KILL IF IT IS THEIR INTENT ON DOING SO?? NO IT HAS NOT. THRSE POLITICIANS THAT THINK THEY HAVE THE RIGHT ANSWER ARE STUPID. MANY PEOPLE ARE KILLED BY VEHICLES EVERY YEAR. SOME BY DRUNK DRIVERS AND OTHERS WITH INTENTION OF KILLING SOMEONE WITH A CAR. SHOULD WE DO A BACKGROUND CHECK FOR PEOPLE TO BUY ALCOHOL OR GASOLINE? STOP INFRINGING ON OUR RIGHTS AMD START DEALING WITH EVIL FOR WHAT IT IS…

  5. Since when has people like this Daley determined that a constitutional amendment is unlawful and willfully causing harm? Stupid people do stupid things just like this Dan Daley. Why doesn’t the article refer to him as a left-wing democrat as he is? If he was republican it would have said so in bold letters. I hope Floridians run this asshole out of state and to NY or CA. He needn’t worry, Biden and his friends will enforce ATF regulations requiring it nationwide anyway so those 1/2 of Floridian state citizens who voted for him, I hope you will be pleased with the new administrations Marxist direction. You halfwits.

  6. All gun control laws are infringements, period. Daley needs to be not merely removed from office, but ought to be stripped of citizenship and deported to a Chinese “Laogai” slave labor camp and worked until he is no longer useful and then harvested for his organs.

    Perhaps at some point Daley will finally grasp why the 2nd Amendment says “…shall not be infringed” – belatedly, but better late than never.

    To respond to the libtards that splutter “but but but HOW do we stop the GUN VIOLENCE” I would say that there is no “gun” violence, only violent people. And the way to deal with violent people is to get rid of them by any means necessary, up to and including shooting them in the face.

    The reason we had such little violent crime prior to the progtards getting in control in the 60’s was that we made it a point to execute (or at least imprison for life) the deranged and incorrigibly violent. We need to go back to this, and eliminate by any means necessary any who would stand in the way.

  7. Absolutely should pass!! What has happened to
    Common Sense 101???
    How much longer must we watch and listen to the
    Senseless murders that are the daily news???

  8. So what’s new except that the government can control who gets guns and who doesn’t, depriving the ordinary citizen from having them for defense as the Bill of Rights and Consitution guarantee. Criminals don’t register weapons when buying or stealing them and if the writers of this or any bill think they they can control guns or that the guns in criminal hands can be tracked and taken as they can be in homes of ordinary citizens, they are sincerely delusional.

  9. This is a clear and blatant violation of the 2nd Amendment. The Supreme Court has already ruled that any restrictions on obtaining, or owning ammunition is no different than restrictions gun ownership because the ammunition is a necessary requirement for the gun to function. Just another liberal attempt to disarm the public.

  10. First of all “WE THE PEOPLE ARE NOT OWNED BY “ANY” HUMAN PERIOD. So you don’t get to tell ANY HUMAN that they have to have your special permission or pay more to buy ANYTHING, PERIOD.
    A FREE PERSON does not have to ask for ANY HUMANS SPECIAL PERMISSION or to be checked for ANY ITEM they want to buy PERIOD.
    SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED MEANS EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS BLACK AND WHITE THERE IS NO GRAY. Which means SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED and NOTHING WILL NO LONGER BE INFRINGED UPON. Your Little HUMAN GIVEN government JOB TITLE does not mean you own the PEOPLE and you don’t so NO there will not be a BACKGROUND anything anymore.
    ALL “YOU” HUMAN GIVEN government JOB TITLEDPIECES OF SHIT can take your little NAZI WANNABE POWER HAPPY CONTROL FREAK HUMAN WANNABE CONTROL so called LAWS and SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASSES before it gets done for you. The “ONLY” LAWS THAT ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO BE FOLLOWED are the 10 COMMANDMENTS PERIOD. Your LITTLE HUMAN WANNABE CONTROL SCRIBBLES WRITTEN on a PIECE of PAPER DO NOT MEAN SHIT AGAINST ANY HUMANS GOD GIVEN NATURAL BORN RIGHTS
    Too all you UNCONSTITUTIONAL TYRANTS you will have FREEDOM put in your heads one way or the other.
    Tyrants are going to start getting shot in the face.

  11. You keep making it harder and harder for citizens to exercise their right. You do realize that the more you push down the citizens the more gangsters you create. They abide by no gun laws and no ammunition laws. You are hurting the law abiding citizens.
