Florida bill would require anger management courses for bullet buyers

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.

    Sen. Audrey Gibson needs an IQ test before resuming her diuties.

    • C B

      Would the state then be responsible for the crimes of a person who has taken the required anger management course?

    • 7papa7

      It would do no good, it is not required to have a positive IQ to be in politics. When you look at the party of most of these serial killers, they are democrats and liberals, (CT, Columbine, Aurora etc), therefore it should not be required for conservatives to go through their anger management, only dems and lefties. In my sphere of friends conservatives don’t exhibit anger liberals do.

      Totally correct

  • James Kroeger

    What idiots…Florida representatives must hang out with MR.Moron Biden! This has got to be the dumbest thing I’ve heard sense Biden told us to walk out on our back porches and fire both shotgun rounds into the air. Complete idiots!!!

    • Charlie

      And people keep voting for these dolts

    • James Maxwell

      Think she holds the target for him when he walks out on the porch to shoot his doublebarrell shotgun at night. And to think she is part of the breeding stop of democats, no wonder their IQ is down
      the drain.

  • CaptTurbo

    Makes sense. Anyone trying to buy plinking ammo is certainly pissed off by now. I just spoke to a Walmart employee who finally leveled with me in telling me that they have been cut off from ammo shipments. Scary times indeed.

  • Kartua

    There is nothing in the 2nd Amendment that says you have to jump through a hoop to get bullets. Besides the state has NO jurisdiction over the Constitution!!!. Where it say “states” it is plural, meaning that all states have to vote on it, not just one!!!

    Worrying about private citizens stock pileing ammo, needing a SHRINK EXAM, suggest she start with NAPOLITANI AND HER 150 MILLION ROUNDS OF AMMO STOCK PILED so we the free people cant have any. THERE IS A PHYSICO FOR YOU!!!!

    • Charlie

    RELOAD !!! I don’t mean your gun , I mean your brass !

  • don

    The question has been asked and I would like an answer to it also and that is how this Idiot ever did get elected and if she would ever think about what she said she would hide her head and never be seen in public ever again. But that may not be the problem maybe she never gets out in public so she is clueless about anything that happens in the lives of people in this great country.Anyway she needs to disappear and resign her position because if this is what she comes up with then how the hell could she ever make a good decision that will benefit her constituents.

    • Charlie

      No worries it was her rectum talking , her mouth knows better ! LMAO

  • servant1jkb

    I wonder If this half-wit, actually knows her way home, or does she have a driver???
    She obviously does not know that nation-wide more people are killed each year by knives and clubs that by any size or amount of bullets!
    The arrogant lack of wisdom within the Liberal Progressives, must be a staggering burden to carry, IF they had to wisdom to know it!

  • Gvette

    There needs to be sane people in government. We’re ca litlle short on that, from all I see going on!

  • DaveinUtah

    This is a first step to say anyone who want to buy ammo is mentaly ill and therefore inelligible to purchase guns and ammo.

  • mickey

    Issue the oath of governmental office to all in our Government again, if they faulter at all get rid of them, we put them in office to do our bidding, not for their own purpose & Gain. IMPEACH the Arrogant/Illegal/Muslim/Fraud/OBAMA. Watch how fast America comes back to life. GET THE MUSLIM OUT.

  • mesaman

    I wondered where all the village idiots had migrated to. Now, with the appearance of queen of the outhouses, Audrey Gibson (black, or any other color would still be as stupid as she), we have prima facie evidence of the concentration of idiots in Florida. While she is at it, why doesn’t she require STD tests and IQ tests for the politicians who glut the halls of the state capitol.

  • The Old Man

    I think she should add cars to the list of killers, butcher knives, hammers, baseball bats and tire irons.
    There are times I really wonder how some of these people get elected to their offices.
    Yes and the manufacturers of cars should be held responsible for all accidents that kill people and of course the state should be liable for all murders committed by people that had the anger management course complete with certificate.

  • mickey

    Please print the name of the Unpatriotic SOB, who came up with this Anger classes before buying bullets. I want the people to see who in Florida is against the good of the United States. He, or she I guarantee you will not be in any governmental office, from here on in.

    To many people in Florida from up north they brought their liberal agenda with them.

    What a loon. “This is not about guns, it’s about ammunition.” And she’s not an idiot; she just talks like one.

  • NamVet

    All of these Democraps, and liberates need to to be made to take a course on the Constitution, so that they can fully understand it. Then send them to a communist country to live.

  • phillyg

    What an idiot…………aarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhh

  • rcbobj

    The liberals are overloaded with fools and idiots. They are the ones that need to be given a test. If they don’t pass the test then they are confined to a padded cell.

    All politicians should have to pass a “constitutional awareness” test with a 3 day waiting period before they can vote on any new legislation.

  • Old Kute

    That is plainly unconstitutional. There is far less proof that there is any more relationship between anger and gun violence than there is between violence involving road rage and the purchase of gas for the vehicle one drives. Most gun violence involves people with illegal guns and they will get their bullets regardless of the law. This idea is, like most all of the gun control laws, described by two words. These words represent what you find in the pens at a rodeo after the bull riding events.

  • jb80538

    Must be a dem that proposed that!

  • KDS

    We won’t comply!!! Period!!!

  • rick

    well thats great, so now, taxpayer money will have to be spent on all the DHS employees, who have to attend anger classes?? unreal, 1.6 billion rounds of ammo, thats alot of anger. a house cleaning is so freakin needed.

  • OldMarine

    Could we see the legislators credentials for practice of medecine? Have been buying ammo and firing guns for decades, as a pilot and law enforcement officer. Never fired a shot in anger no do I get angry during traffic stops. I explain as a parent might the issue and make a comment about the possibility of future action if caught again for a similar offense. Some politicians have raised my B/P, but I’m not going there.

  • pwr11@aol.com

    I certainly hope it’s a dangerous situation if I come in contact with a criminal, Dangerous for him that is! This is about the stupidest thing I’ve heard of in Fl., does this women know we have over 1 million CCW permit holders in our state? I also wonder if she knows that the crime rate is at an all time low? I hope the people of Jacksonville are smart enough to get rid of this bimbo next election!!

  • fedfreakinup

    Please

  • don

    She knows that those elected to serve need to fear those with guts enough to protect their rights from idiots..

  • GDC97

    Being told I had to go to a Anger Management course to buy ammo would make me ANGRY (anger means extreme frustration)!!!
    IGNORANT and STUPID people believe that there is something wrong with being ANGRY. Anger is only wrong when it is IRRATIONAL, Inappropriate for the situation. Many a old ladies save their lives when they got ANGRY and fought back against an attacker. Then that IS one of the reason for ANGER. To get ready for a fight. That is get “READY” for a fight it does NOT mean one has to fight. ANGER often cause many people to take action about what they got ANGRY about. Like standing UP AGAINST the ANTI-GUNNERS who DO want to take guns away from the American Citizens. So ANGER is NOT always bad. In many case it IS VERY GOOD. It depends on how one deals with what provoked the ANGER!!!

    • m2

      I agree with every single thing you said. I think the big takeaway that most of us need to see as well, is that THE STATE gets to decide who is angry, and how ‘dangerous’ they must certainly have been. We’ll just have to tell our probation officer (or case worker or brownshirt or rent-a-thug or whoever).

  • Stephan Drake

    So what does it mean if the only time you get angry is when someone messes with your second amendment rights.

    • m2

      Good question. Once again the Dems are trying to control all context/wording/meaning/application of all thoughts and ideas. OF COURSE they couldn’t leave us to ‘innocent until proven guilty’. That would smack too much of Due Process and Constitutional rights. Can’t have that….it’s not in the Marx/Obama/Alinsky playbook.

  • UncleBuck

    So tell me, do these Dems line up or have a drawing to see who’s next to try and screw the American public with the stupidest reform law? Maybe we should demand psych testing for all politicians, both new and old.

  • Dale_G1

    ANGER management!?!? Why don’t these idiots we put in office just try some regular management, or better yet…some management of the budget before they try to “dictate” ( short form of DICTATOR ) what
    and how WE should “manage”? If they could more properly MANAGE the tax-payer dollars that we foolishly allow them access to, MAYBE this country wouldn’t be in the fiscal shape it’s in! If the CFO’s of a
    company gambled with their businesses money like our politicians do, they would be OUT OF BUSINESS!
    If the head of a household ( the income earners and book keepers of a family ) did with their money what the government does with ours, they’d be getting a divorce letter, kicked out of their house and would be
    homeless. Why do WE let the government get away with the same crap that we can’t? BECAUSE WE LET THEM!!! Will it take millions upon millions of people marching on Wash. DC, surrounding the Capitol
    and the White House with torches and pitchforks before they get the message? How about bringing tarring
    and feathering and the hangmans noose back for all of the traitorous and treasonous over spenders of our money? They are killing our country every bit as much as a terrorist or rogue nations dictator would if they could. Anybody want to start a march on DC?

  • Don’tTreadonUs

    I guess there’s a reason they call it FloriDUH?

  • Charlie

    Does this bill include the DHS because this group seems to be really angry with all USA citizens. Maybe the bill will cut off the buying spree that this mostly illegal group has been doing.

  • luciteehee

    GREAT idea! Start with all the criminals, Government employees, Politicians, those who solicit our votes then ignore our needs, Authorities, and felons who buy weapons and ammunition through the “back door”!
    And DON’T just “catch and release”! This ain’t no trout stream! This is AMERICA! Think: Freedom, democracy, Constitutional Rights, consideration of others, honesty, decency, honor, and a deep dedication to God, family and Country! All attributes our Nation was founded on! Only after we allowed our Government to slowly take away or delute those principles did we begin to flounder! Now the bloated octopus called Government is out of control and it will take major “stapling” around the gargantuan GUT to slow its ravenous appetite!

  • Charlie

    At all levels of our government our servants are very corrupt and totally stupid. Suprised they can find their way to the bathroom kind of stupid.

  • Bob Martin

    Where do they find these losers?

  • aXisFade

    What does being a liberal have to do with anything? Can’t politicians just be stupid? Because lets face it. There’s dummies in politics everywhere.

  • oldguy199

    That would ELEMINATE all LIB/PROG/DUMS from buying any ammo, weapons, sharp objects, flammable materials, chemicals, etc, because they are KRAZY

  • Walt

    That sounds like a caifornia law to me. No, just another democrat rambling. Par for the course

  • m2

    Riiiiiight. Because we are ALL just ANGRY (white) males….bitterly clinging to our God, guns and religion? Isn’t that the stereotype there Miss Sterotypically Clueless Lawmaker. How about THIS. I WAS just buying pistol ammo. But maybe NOW I will go STOCKPILE some .223 (look it up ya dumb b****).

  • Screamin Mime

    How about a bill that requires CongressCritters to take a Constitution and basic finance class before taking office?

  • Ron

    Why is it that every thing that is stupid has a D beside the name of the person who says or does it? What is an anger management class going to do about anything. People who are up to no good are not going to buy ammo in a store. When are these people going to learn something?

  • medivac

    And morons like this waste the free air they breath because they serve no useful purpose in this world !!!!

  • jimpeel

    Although I will be skewered as being a sexist, this woman is a glaring example of why women should not be allowed to become legislators. Women think with their hearts instead of their heads. They bow to emotion and their responses are always emotion based.

    We can’t have all women think like Golda Meier, Benizir Bhutto, or Margaret Thatcher but it surely would be nice.

    what a bunch of grap d.c. and some of these states need to take a lesson in using their brains

  • Arizona Don

    Less then one ten thousandth of one percent abuse the gun laws and commit murder even less then that commit a massacre like we have seen in Arizona, Oregon, Conn. and Colorado in the past several years. So as far as this person is concerned the hundred million or so of us who are law abiding citizens have to be tested for or trained in anger management. When it comes to guns why are the laws always set against the people who obey the laws? Is this not a good example of total ignorance? Wayne LaPierre was right when he said the only person who can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. But convincing the ignorant liberal progressives of anything reasonable is impossible. They will never succeed in getting all the guns, never! Even if those of us who are law abiding honest people were to surrender ours, which we won’t, who among us thinks the crooks will give up theirs?

  • Donald York

    Ahhhhhh, Happiness is a warm gun, and the smell of gunpowder.

  • Aristophanes

    How stupid can she get? Anger management? Does she really think the majority of gun owners are buying guns and ammunition because we are angry? Well, yeah, we are. Because of stupid people like her and her fellow liberals who are trying to destroy our country!! Duh!!!

  • Keenan Lee

    Would this apply to DHS and the President for buying 7 billion rounds? That’s alotta rounds.

  • Steve Thomas

    Did she actually say “citizens stockpiling ammo could create a dangerous situation for criminals”??? NO DUH, YOU DUMB BI**H! I certainly hope it does.

  • gutterfalcon

    I can’t believe these politicians, where do they come up with these ideas ? Do they ask their Preschoolers what their dreams were the night before ? Or ask them their ideas at breakfast ?
