BG checks on private sales are completely unenforceable and not something you should comply with anyway.
Wouldn't such a law violate preemption?

Re: Who else hates the daylight saving time change

Congress is not going to authorize 5 continental time zones. Now if everybody did it, fine--then it stays at 4. But it is not going to allow Florida to go off on its own. We have hashed this out over and over. The issues don't change. Arizona is off an hour in the summer, Florida would be off an ho...

Re: Kentucky Gov Signs bill for concealed gun carry...

Yet Florida still can't pass campus carry, or remove any other carry-prohibited place on the current list. Heck, before CA got even more stupid a couple of years ago licensees there could carry on school (K-12) grounds. Even after that change California's prohibit places list is still significantly ...

Re: Who else hates the daylight saving time change

Add me to the list. When I lived in Arizona for a couple of years I liked not having CST/CDT changes. Effectively being on Atlantic time in the winter would be amusing.

Re: Will Florida go to "open" primaries?

The obvious purpose here is to definitively destroy Republicans as a political power in Florida. First allow felons to vote, which through a combination of now-legitimate votes and vote fraud (a million additional "voters" means more scope for adding fraudulent ballots without raising alarms) means ...

Re: Florida Prosecutors file suit to declare SYG unconstitutional

I believe this was done now in the hopes that the Democrat wins the governorship. I've read there will be empty seats on Florida's highest court, so if the he wins he can appoint a bunch of anti-gun judges. I doubt our spineless legislature, even if nominally Republican-controlled, will stop him, si...

Re: Fall back tonight...

Time for this insanity about the time change to end! Pick one, Daylight Savings or Standard Time, and then STICK WITH IT! The FL Legislature did. They passed a law making DST the year-round standard. Since violates Federal law, which oddly only contemplates a state eliminating DST, it takes an act ...

Re: Should gun owners fear the deep state?

I believe the only possible solution is instilling in the standing bureaucracy a "keep out of politics" culture. They need to keep in mind, always, that there's a big divide between their professional responsibilities and their beliefs about any particular politician or party. The Never Trumpers in...
