Florida Bill Requires Anger Management Class to Buy Ammunition

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.

    What next? AA classes to buy a beer? Wildlife sensitivity class to buy fish bait? Environmental impact statement to plant roses? I really despise liberals.

  • Liberalism is a mental disorder. Anyone running as a democrat should be required to have a mental evaluation first. Hell, anyone voting democrat should be required to have one as well.

    It’s a pity no one seems to be prepared to analyze the proposal on its merits or demerits, preferring instead to dismiss it under one of the oldest rhetorical fallacies of all. What matters surely is evaluation of the proposal and potential costs and benefits, regardless of who introduced it, and not knee-jerk responses that add nothing to critical debate. With many courts now mandating anger management training for first time offenders, it makes logical sense to try to use similar schemes aimed at reducing the number who get to be first time offenders. That could work in everyone’s interests.
