Take Anger Management Class to Buy Ammunition

I see the news and check the headlines and it seems to me that our country has a lot of big problems. One of the primary problems is the $16,6 trillion dollar debt and another is high unemployment. So – how can any politician give a logical explanation for asking the Florida legislature to consider a bill that says a person who buys “a lot” of ammunition, must take an anger management class. Are they kidding?

I’ll share the link below, but have to share a couple of my favorite quotes from this article –

This is not about guns,” Gibson said. “This is about ammunition and not only for the safety of the general community, but also for the safety of law enforcement.”

So, the person who submitted this bill things that having law abiding citizens who want to protect themselves from CRIMINALS need to take anger management courses in order to protect law enforcement… umm, okay….

Gibson said she’s concerned with citizens stockpiling ammunition, potentially creating dangerous situations should those individuals ever come in contact with law enforcement agencies or criminals.

Does she not understand that the current insane and irresponsible actions by politicians are a big part of what is driving people to feel they need to stockpile ammunition?

Gibson first announced her intentions to introduce such legislation last month during a rally for Davis, saying “people are just not as patient as they used to be,” according to the Florida Times-Union.

“We see the rage on the road all the time,” she continued Wednesday. “People are just more impatient, I don’t know what it is.”

Could it be that people are tired of dealing with stupid laws that stomp on our rights? Or in the case that prompted her to introduce this legislation – maybe she should consider the culture that encourages teens to blast their music and be disrespectful with adults who ask them to act in a thoughtful way? (This is just one of many articles about the Jordan Davis/Michael Dunn case.)

This is my favorite quote – and that is a class that many of our politicians need to take and pass before taking office.
Critics of the bill, however, derided the legislation as “absolutely ridiculous” and suggested that Gibson take a course on the U.S. Constitution.
