Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 14, 2019

A new Florida bill would make it a crime for a minor to post a picture of a gun -- "or a device displayed to resemble a firearm" -- on social media. The bill, SB 1310, was introduced by Florida state senator and Democrat Jason W. B. Pizzo. The bill states that anyone younger than 18 "who posts or publishes a picture of a firearm, a BB gun, an air or a gas-operated gun, or a device displayed to resemble a firearm to a social media page, post, profile, or account that is openly viewable to the public commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable" by a fine of $1,000 or up to a year in jail.

I just perused it, the NRO author Katherine Timpf does not misrepresent the bill.

This thing is insane.

its illegal for a minor to purchase a gun in most states

it's called States Rights

What responsible adult would want an underage child posing with guns?

a "minor" is a person under the age of full legal responsibility

RESPONSABILITY! You know, what adults are supposed to provide to a minor

Guns aren't selfie props, stupid

So instead of passing laws that keep guns out of the hands of lunatics, they pass a law making it illegal to post a picture of a gun.

I've never understood people posing with guns.

I even ditch mine if posing for a group photo while hunting or shooting. I got why others don't, and I know it's my hang up, but whatever.
The ones doingitthinjing they're gangster are beyond the pale.

The logic is ridiculous. So, it's ok if an adult posts the same image? That's freaking crazy!

You're right, Danni.

It is crazy, which is the reason why I created this thread.

This bill criminalizes a 12 year old at a paintball field posting a selfie with a marker.

It will never survive a 1st Amendment challenge.
