Ok, so first FL is the state I live in.
Second the article contains lots of the race card, I do not play that so lets keep this conversation civilized.
I know numerous people on the forum here are pro 2nd and a lot are not. Even if you are not, how can you support profiling? RESPECT PEOPLE!
So lets start.
The bill is slated to be introduced in May, it would expand the background check and get rid of the three day waiting period opting for longer CCW are
exempt still. Ok compromise I get it. Politics.
Here is where the bill gets real shady real quick.
Stated in the bill profiling courses would “teach firearm retailers about warning signs for potential criminal or terrorist activity.”
It unorthodoxly lists examples of those sorts of “warning signs,” too. “The use of slang and/ or aggressive verbal behavior, baggy
clothing, excessive jewelry, religious garb/ clothing, and any signs that the customer might be visiting the United States illegally would be some,
but not all, of the things said retailers would learn to look for before determining whether they can safely make a firearm sale.”
So basically some teenager at the pawn shop can decide if your worthy to own a gun.
But wait it gets even better!
The law would also allow law enforcement to “enter the homes of suspected firearm owners and search the grounds without a warrant, so long
as they have probable cause to believe firearms are on the premises.” The law enforcement agents would need to qualify the warrantless search
using the same profiling methods taught by the course and discussed in the bill.
So now police can conduct swat raids on the citizens based on warentless profiling.
The rest of the article explains how it is racist. Hell even the ACLU say thia bill is # up.
So basicly if you fit "there profile" you can expect to be raided. You look wong, tattoos, religion you now can have a police raid on your house
"looking for guns".
This bill absolutely crosses the line. It is blatant to see the agenda. I doubt it will pass as Rick Scott is up for re-election, but who the hell
writes this? How can so many "freedoms" be violated in one bill with someone thinking it is ok?
