Two pieces of legislation have been filed in Tallahassee that would prohibit the sale, transfer or possession of military grade-weapons or large capacity magazines.
State Sen. Gary Farmer is one of the elected officials pushing for the bills to pass during the upcoming state legislative session.
“When you look at these weapons, when you look at the manufacturer weapon specifications, they were designed for one thing and one thing only: to kill large numbers of human beings in the briefest timespan possible. That’s it,” Farmer said. “There’s no sporting purpose to have an AR assault weapon.”
