Misc. Friday Ramblings...

Give me Ham on five, hold the Mayo.

  • Full auto family reunion.
    A family that shoots together, knows not to mess with each other.

  • I want to work for Dillon Aerospace.
    I bet their company picnics are a hoot.

  • It has been a busy week in the Florida Legislature:

    1. No Confiscation of Firearms Bill Passes Florida Legislature.
      A bill supported by the National Rifle Association and Unified Sportsmen of Florida to prohibit confiscation of firearms following hurricanes (such as was done in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina) passed the Florida Legislature Thursday, May 4, and is on its way to Governor Jeb Bush (R) for his signature.

    2. CCW License Renewal/Military bill passes Florida Legislature.
      SB-1290, Sponsored by Senator Mike Fasano (R-New Port Richey) in the Senate and Representative Marti Coley (R-Panama City) in the House does the following:
      1. Applies only to men and women serving in the U.S. armed services, who are on active duty away from home.
      2. Provides that concealed weapons and firearms licenses of such service members will not expire while they are serving on military orders that have taken them away from home.
      3. Extends such licenses for an additional 180 days after they return home from active duty assignment so that they may be renewed without late fees or penalties.

    3. No-Net-Loss of Hunting Lands bill passes Florida Legislature.
      HB-265 Sponsored by Representative Don Brown (R-DeFuniak Springs) in the House and Senator Nancy Argenziano (R-Crystal River) in the Senate does the following:
      1. Establishes a baseline number of acres of public hunting lands, equal to the number of acres open for hunting on the effective date of this act.
      2. Requires the Florida Wildlife & Conservation Commission (FWC) to find replacement hunting lands for any public hunting lands that are closed in the future so the number of hunting acres does not fall below the base line.
      3. Requires FWC to try to find replacement hunting lands in the same region as the lost acreage and to the extent possible, allow the same type of hunting as was allowed on the closed land.
      4. Requires state agencies and water management districts to assist and cooperate with FWC and allow hunting on lands they manage if the land is suitable for hunting. However, state parks are excluded from lands that may be used for replacement lands.
