Florida SB_1310 would criminalize a minor’s social media picture of a gun

A whole bunch of people are going to post pictures in defiance of this proposed ban. If it passes (I expect it won’t), no one will go to jail as a result. The law will be struck down as unconstitutional.

But but but!!! Don't you care about the children? Those poor defenseless animals, the environment? Polar bears are dying and all you're concerned with is your evil black machine guns! It's all Trumps fault...if only Hillary would've not been robbed of the election by those Rooskies...and Trump...and Big Pharma, Big Banking, Big Oil, Big Agro, The Military Industrial Complex, FauxNews, CNN, OCDO...

I always hear how the legislature is "supposed" to represent "the people".

I wonder just how many of this guy's district called or emailed him and said "we must do away with those awful pictures on facebook of children pointing fingers at each other"?

Who comes up with this stuff???

Polar bears need YOU (and your gullible young kids) for the great cause of socialism and tyranny! Please send your kids to the nearest public school ASAP to be brainwashed at your expense (unless you're an illegal immigrant or part of a pet social/racial group) and taught to help undermine your culture and overthrow your rights and way of life.

Wow (reading bill text) no distinction between firearms or BB guns or something that may resemble a gun (guess that goes without saying for anyone dumb enough to believe pics of guns should be criminalized), parents also get to be brainwashed as part of the deal, and any community service will be performed in a place that handles gunshot wounds. Wonder how all this would mesh into the existing Florida program to ignore actual crime by favored young gang bangas? They can't be flashing they pieces and wads on Facebook? ACLU would have a cow. That ain't gonna play well long-run with the good liberal socialist voters.

Then there are those deadly pop-tarts.
An 8-year-old Maryland boy got a standing ovation and a lifetime membership to the National Rifle Association after being suspended from school for gnawing a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun.

Hoplophobic friends, family members, parents, teachers, other adults, etc. would be encouraged to report violations to authorities. You know, “See something; say something.” You know, the early stages of fascism.
