Recent Bill will Limit the Rights of Some of the Mentally Ill in Florida
FLORIDA- House Bill 1355 is on governor Rick Scott’s desk awaiting review but he says he’s still a believer in the right to bear arms.
Governor Scott had this to say, “I’m a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and so but I’ll be reviewing the bill like I do all the other bills but I’m a very strong supporter of the second Amendment.”
Current law restricts those brought in under the Baker Act and then court ordered to treatment from purchasing firearms.
The bill expands this law to place the same restrictions on those who are voluntarily in treatment after Baker Act.
People subject to this bill would fall under the National instant Check System, a database of people prohibited from purchasing firearms.
