FLORIDA: NRA Files Suit To Block New Gun Law

USA Today reports:

The National Rifle Association filed a federal lawsuit this afternoon against the state to block a law that had just been signed by Gov. Rick Scott that prohibits gun sales to anyone between the ages of 18 and 21.

“We filed a lawsuit against the state for violating the constitutional rights of 18 to 21 year olds,” said Marion Hammer, lobbyist for the NRA in Florida. NRA lawyers in Tallahassee and Washington D.C. were working on the complaint this afternoon, and filed the complaint moments before the court’s deadline.

It was also filed more than an hour after Scott signed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act into law. The lawsuit names Attorney General Pam Bondi and Rick Swearingen of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

  • Sam_Handwich

    i don’t get how they’d have standing. who’s the plaintiff?

    seems desperate

    • matrem

      maybe revenue is down. Or mueller has the docs showing donations by the Russians

    • bkmn

      Maybe they are suing on behalf of all the undertakers that won’t be as busy.

      • Mark

        and ambulance chasing attorneys….or solicitors as we called them in AU

    • Proud MOFO Beaner (bkb)

      Article III standing requires

      1. Injury in fact —here you’d likely need to find a plaintiff denied a gun so you’re right that the case doesn’t seem ripe yet. But once it happens, I think a lawsuit would meet other elements to proceed

      2Causation

      3. Redressibility

      • Sam_Handwich

        i dunno, federal courts don’t take prima facie cases much at all

        • Proud MOFO Beaner (bkb)

          I don’t what that means. You asked about standing

          • Sam_Handwich

            its’ asking the courts to look at the text of a law and judge its constitutionality without a real live plaintiff/s claiming injury

      • FL Attorney: “Is it legal for your client to own a firearm in the state of Florida?”
        NRA: “It is not legal for my client to buy a firearm—”
        FL Attorney: “That’s not what I asked. Is it legal for your 19 year old client to OWN a firearm in the state of Florida?”
        NRA: “Yes, but he can’t buy—”
        FL Attorney: “Is your client under any court order or has he been convicted of any felony which would prohibit him from owning a firearm.”
        NRA: “No.”
        FL Attorney: “Is it therefore legal for someone over the age of 21, say your client’s parent or legal guardian, to purchase the firearm and then transfer ownership of the firearm to your client, as a gift?”
        NRA: …
        FL Attorney: “Your Honor, I submit the plaintiff’s attorney is being unresponsive.”

  • bkmn
  • Bluto
  • Before today, it was illegal for those in FL under 21 to buy handguns. This new law just expands it to include long-guns. Age restrictions have been upheld in multiple states. The Florida law does not ban those 18 to 21 from OWNING firearms, just from being able to purchase them themselves.

    This complaint will be dismissed and/or lose in court.

    • La’Kietha

      They are too stupid for thier own good. They are just a money laundering organization for the Republican Party

      • No More GOP.

        Actually, the GOP is a front for the same kind of monied interests that have their collective hand up the back of the NRA sock puppet.

      • TimJ

        Exactly. In what universe do they think this is good for their image?

  • Ninja0980
  • ‘Til Tuesday

    As the lobbying arm of the gun industry, of course they filed suit. Every gun that’s sold is more money in the NRA’s pockets. Anything that restricts gun sales hurts their bottom line. The NRA doesn’t represent hunters or even gun owners generally. They represent the gun industry. Fuckers.

    • Richard Rush

      I think the NRA has been using a long range two-part strategy for increasing the profits of gun makers which also puts more money in the NRA’s pockets:

      Part 1: Put more guns in the hands of criminals and potential criminals.

      Part 2: Make everyone else believe that they need guns to defend themselves against the criminals.

      Of course, the NRA’s view is that liberals will whine and fuss every time there is a mass murder along the way toward achieving their goals, but true patriots understand that the unfettered freedom to own guns must be accommodated by others, even if it means they are inconvenienced sometimes.

  • UrsusArctos 🐻

    One GOOD thing about this move is that it forces the terrorists NRA to make their arguments in court rather than as they usually do by buying legislators.
    Sunshine is a disinfectant.
    A lot of people with no real positions on guns will be outraged by what I predict is the NRAs deplorable actions trying to stop ANY gun laws.
    Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

      • The_Wretched

    • Natty Enquirer

      The Constitution does not guarantee the right to drink alcohol.

      • TrollopeReader

        The Constitution is *not* perfect !!

      • UrsusArctos 🐻

        The age limit looks like it’ll pass constitutional scrutiny. The 2A right to hold arms as an individual is somewhat muddy and not unlimited in scope, despite the redefining of it since the 1980s.
        From DC v Heller “Justice Antonin Scalia, said:[209]
        Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited … Although we do not undertake an exhaustive historical analysis today of the full scope of the Second Amendment, nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.[210]”

      • The_Wretched

        Assault rifle full bans are constitutionaal therefore a age limit, which is less of a restriction are also constitutional.

  • Chucktech

    I’ve seen another lawsuit claiming “age discrimination” and gun buying, in Oregon, as I recall, against Dick’s and their new age limit. Doing a casual Google search of “age discrimination laws” seem to only indicate prohibitions in age discrimination in the workplace and only, of course, when there is discrimination against older persons.

    Nowhere do I find any laws prohibiting discrimination by anyone, whether it’s Dick’s Sporting Goods or, in this case, Florida, or anywhere/anyone else due to the person being too young.

    Ergo, this is just total, desperate, gun-crazy bullshit.

  • TrollopeReader

    NRA: it’s discrimination that our client can’t buy a long-rifle until he’s 21 … he’ll be out of high school by then and can’t easily shoot it up.

  • Natty Enquirer

    The age of majority in Florida is 18.

    • UrsusArctos 🐻

      If there’s a state interest they are allowed to set age limits. Driving is restricted at 16. The state restricts alcohol to 21 despite majority. Handguns are already restricted to 21. Even the US Constitution has age thresholds to hold elected office.

      • Natty Enquirer

        True, but neither motoring nor consuming alcohol are explicitly protected by the Constitution. The NRA will be picking on the total ban on gun sales to adults.

        • UrsusArctos 🐻

          They may not get the decision they want. SCOTUS has already ruled that right is not unlimited. With this court they might prevail, but somehow I doubt killing all gun laws under cover of 2A is going to fly.

    • Bad Tom

      Then ban assault rifles for everyone.

    • An 18yo is allowed to own a firearm, even a handgun.

      They are simply not allowed to purchase one from a store or private seller. That’s it.

  • Devon Rodriguez

    Oh, my! The gun industry might have a bit fewer sales if 18 to 21 year olds can’t purchase weapons personally.

    This is the clear evidence that the NRA is what it really is — a lobby for gun makers; and that it is not what it pretends to be — an organization of average gun owners (the 2nd Amendment is just a marketing tool for the NRA).

  • Henry Auvil

    DISTURBED TEENS NEED WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU SOCIALIST LIBERALS?!!

      The raising of the drinking age from 18 to 21 was because of pressure from MAD mother’s against drinking (and driving) groups. Starting back in the 80’s.

  • safari

    I say we also ban them for anyone over 70.

  • The NRA has been able to bully elected officials into submission for 25 years and it is inconceivable to them that they won’t be able to do that in perpetuity. And they will if we let them. Reasonable people would come up with some sort of compromise to reduce mass shootings but they don’t think they have to make any accommodation to anyone. We’ll see in November if they can bully us into letting more of us die.

  • BeaverTales

    “We filed a lawsuit against the state for violating the constitutional rights of 18 to 21 year olds,”

    LaPierre is as dumb as a box of bullets. This legal argument should be an easy one to destroy.

    The Constitutional rights of 18-21 year-olds are violated by states in legislation related to auto insurance companies, alcohol beverage sales, holding office, and in driving commercial vehicles. Guns are far more dangerous than cars, booze, tractor-trailer trucks (but maybe not as much as politicians).

    I don’t think they have a case.

    • TrollopeReader

      and 22-24 year olds on renting cars ….

      • BeaverTales

        that’s because of the cost of insuring them

        • TrollopeReader

          and the cost of insuring younger gun owners?!!

    • JohnJay

      Unfortunately, it doesn’t go by danger. The Constitution supposedly ensures the right to guns. That can’t be said about driving, renting a car, or buying/drinking alcohol.

      • UrsusArctos 🐻

        Age isn’t mentioned in the Constitution, except for office holders. So, extending this logic would allow anyone to own anything. I think some of the founders would have qualms about those 3/5ths folk having firearms at any age. Heller found the 2A isn’t open ended.

    OT: Michael Avenatti….. aka Stormy Daniels Attorney
    Interesting Read!!! Lets hope, that Michael Cohen does NOT stand a chance!!!

    Avenatti graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a major in Political Science in 1996. He subsequently attended law school at George Washington University, in Washington, D.C. where he worked with Professor Jonathan Turley on constitutional issues relating to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). He later graduated Order of the Coif, first in his class.[7]

    In 2003, George Washington University Law School established the Michael J. Avenatti Award for Excellence in Pre-Trial and Trial Advocacy, an annual award given to the member of the graduating Juris Doctor class who demonstrates excellence in pre-trial and trial advocacy. Avenatti also received George Washington University’s prestigious Alumni Recognition Award in 2010.[16]

    While in college and later in law school, Avenatti worked at a political opposition and media firm, The Research Group, run by Rahm Emanuel (later White House Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama, and mayor of Chicago).[17] Avenatti worked on over 150 campaigns in 42 states, including multiple gubernatorial and congressional campaigns and Joe Biden’s U.S. Senate campaign.[7]

          I almost snorted Bailey’s out my nose, and that would have been a crime. The NRA may not be amateurs, but the Dump crew sure is.

    … Because arming mental and extremist 18 year olds is always about gun safety.

    Is our country so far gone that the kids can beat this madness? Feels like everything is hanging by a thread.

    • AmeriCanadian

      I think there has been one too many additives made to the national food supply and, since its effect is cumulative over time, it hasn’t affected the young yet. What else would explain the madness that the U.S. has descended into?

    Armed Federal Agents At All Polling Places Nation Wide?

    WASHINGTON — President Trump would be able to dispatch Secret Service agents to polling places nationwide during a federal election, a vast expansion of executive authority, if a provision in a Homeland Security reauthorization bill remains intact.

    The rider has prompted outrage from more than a dozen top elections officials around the country, including Massachusetts Secretary of State Bill Galvin, a Democrat, who says he’s worried that it could be used to intimidate voters and said there is “no basis” for providing Trump with this new authority.

    “This is worthy of a Third World country,” said Galvin in an interview. “I’m not going to tolerate people showing up to our polling places. I would not want to have federal agents showing up in largely Hispanic areas.”

      JFC! I am totally voting absentee come November.

    • Ninja0980

      Want to bet they’ll be in swing states and only at Democratic voting places?

      • Richard, another Canuck

        Do Republicans and Democratic parties have separate polling places?

        • The_Wretched

          Yes, it works out that way due to racial segregation.

    Trump signed the order today that legalizes importing elephant trophies,today…

    Just imagine the dark, black hole that you’d need in your chest to be a “lobbyist for the NRA”.

    There is only one solution to the NRA problem….alas, no one will consider it.

    P.S. I thought I’d make them feel at home by using their own language against them.

  • boatboy_srq

    1) States’ rights are paramount. Except when they’re not.

    2) So, now they care about the 18-to-21s. Pity about the 5-to-18s.

      That was a very well done video. I hope lots of folks see it and recognize the NRA for what it is.

      How is the NRA incorporated? Sure seems like this definition, or lack thereof, of a well regulated militia has become very distorted.

      America already has a well regulated militia and that is the US Armed Forces.

  • RaygunsGoZap

    What’s the NRA’s standing?

  • misterjack

    Surely, one of you children can take that photo and Photoshop dick flying into his pie-hole? ***clap, clap*** Commence shenanigans!

    • TJay229

      LoL 😂 You win!

  • ColdCountry

    It violateds the rights of 18-21 year olds? Why not 4-6 year olds? Is the age not just an arbitrary limit anyway? Does the Constitution specify the age at which a person can purchase a gun? I’m really beginning to hate these fuckers. I mean really, what possible motivation could they have other than money? Why can’t the amosexuals see that?

  • royinhell

    Remember when Budweiser sued after the drinking age was raised to 21 (by Reagan threatening to withhold federal funds from states that refused)? Me, neither.

  • EDinMCO

    We (Florida) are the NRA’s Petri dish. It’s unbelievable the speed and intensity with which they stomp on ANY person, group, or action that even hints at gun control. The mere mention can cost a local politician their job.

  • Kevin Andrews

    The Terrorists at the NRA have to keep their most productive mass murderers well stocked. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0b26e9988e15573dc51350add76fbc6a28aab954a494a6711650ffff1727481b.png

    If the ‘NRA’ (whichever org it is that’s involved here, since there are 5) wins this suit then it means a gun manufacturer’s weapons lobby is the most powerful entity in the entire US. More powerful than the Mercers. More powerful than the Kochs. If they win, we’re quite literally all f*cked.

    • The_Wretched

      Uh, the kochs are much bigger

  • anne marie in philly

    OF COURSE THEY DID! even a 1 year old has the gawd-given right to own a gun!

    You can put a pretty fat dildo in that mouth. It needs to be hammered into place with a mallet.

    • Gianni

      My first thought every time I see his pic with that BIG, WIDE open gob.

  • Gianni

    His math is just a bit off. The claimed violated rights would belong to 18 to 20 year-old people. 21 year-olders are permitted to buy a gun.
