The 2013 session of the Florida legislature dealt with 15 gun bills. Out of those 15, including five changes to the Stand Your Ground law, only one passed, which was a bill that prevents people voluntarily admitted to a mental institution from possessing a firearm.
None of the Stand Your Ground changes passed. (George Zimmerman also recently passed on a Stand Your Ground hearing.)
Of the others that failed: One that mandated that only licensed dealers could sell guns at gun shows, a bill that would have repealed the "Docs and Glocks" law that banned doctors from asking patients about guns, one that would have given local governments the ability to regulate firearms in public locations, one that would have created firearms sales tax with revenues to be used for school safety, a bill that would have allowed counties and cities to regulate firearms, another to create a tax on guns sales to support mental health treatment, a bill to require anger management classes before ammunition purchases, one that would allow school principals to designate school employees to carry concealed weapons in schools, and one that would require universal background checks.
As the U.S. Senate was voting for strengthening background checks, which ultimately failed, the Legislature passed House Memorial 545, which warned federal officials not to infringe on the rights of gun owners:
One Representative shouted out “Let liberty ring!” before making the sound of loading a gun and asking his colleagues to support the bill. It passed in a lopsided vote that broke down mostly along party lines.
And of course, liberty rings on in Florida. On, and since Friday, the end of the legislative session:
Melbourne police arrested a member of Florida's National Guard on suspicion of threatening a group of women with a smoke grenade and an assault rifle. According to Melbourne police, William Soto Figueroa, 24, entered an apartment on Woodwind Trail—without permission—Wednesday night and scared four women inside with the grenade. The victims thought the smoke bomb was a grenade and ran into different rooms in the apartment, police said. Police say Figueroa left the apartment but later returned with an AR-15-style assault rifle.
In another location where three women were shot, the carnage took place about 150 feet away from what should be an ideal crime deterrent — a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office substation.
Since Newtown, there have been 253 gun deaths in Florida.
