The attempt to ban “assault weapons” in Florida via a ballot initiative has fallen short and will not appear on the 2020 ballot as gun control groups hoped.

On November 27, 2018, Breitbart News reported the launch of the initiative to ban “assault weapons” in the Sunshine State. Out-of-state involvement marked the effort from the start, with Fox 35 reporting in 2018 that the gun ban proponents were working with a “California-based company” for petitions in order to get the necessary signatures to get the initiative on the ballot for 2020.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the initiative would have banned semiautomatic rifles and shotguns holding more than ten rounds, but it failed because supporters only collected 145,000 of the 766,200 signatures required to get the measure on the ballot.

Second Amendment Foundation founder and executive director Alan Gottlieb spoke to Breitbart News about the initiative’s failure, saying, “Even the Bloomberg machine financed by its tens of millions of dollars could not get this on the ballot.”

He added, “They will be back to try again in 2022 to destroy Second Amendment rights, and we will be ready for them.”

Would it make sense to give money to the Second Amendment Foundation rather than the NRA ("both" is not the answer). Thanks.

I'm thinking of running for Ag. Commissioner. The "B" we currently have needs to go. She was big time behind initiative.

She has also convinced a couple of our esteemed legislators to introduce a couple of really bad bills that really need to die in committee.
