    I Am Pro Gun Change My Mind

    When we have debates about the meaning of the Second Amendment, we tend to only take into account the phrase that says "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed". However, the Second Amendment says that "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed". The phrase "well regulated militia" is arguably a provision that prevents the federal government from interfering with the defense of a state. However adding the word regulated, implies that the Framers did not intend for this right to not have exceptions. In response to a question asked earlier in this discussion, there are checks to the First Amendment. There are time and place restrictions that prevent people from shouting fire in a crowded building or restrictions that prevent people from randomly protesting on highways to stop traffic. There are certainly exceptions to every right.

    10 Minute Floor Speeches

    Mr. Speaker @ADG I ask for 10 minutes to advise and extend my remarks. Mr. Speaker, I rise today for the first time in this honorable chamber as the newly elected representative of Florida's 24th congressional district. One month and two days ago, students attending Mary Stoneman Douglass High School in our neighboring 22nd district experienced a tragedy that no one could wish on their worst enemies. Children attending the very schools that we have mandated them to were mercilessly murdered in their classrooms and in their halls. Mr. Speaker, since that day, we have witnessed the unwavering resolve of American students as they marched out of those very classrooms to protest our inaction to the epidemic of gun violence in this nation. I am proud to say that the students of Florida have led the fight for stricter laws to be put into place regarding gun violence in schools. The Florida legislature has taken the first step in raising the minimum age required to own a firearm in the state of Florida, expanding the right of law enforcement to keep guns out of the hands of those who should not have them, and by banning the sale and purchase of bump stocks in the state. It is our obligation as the people's house to enact similar legislation for the nation. Mr Speaker, in the United States citizens can attend a gun show and purchase arms from a private seller without being required to complete a federal background check. In this nation a father can give his son the family rifle without having to report that transfer to any authorities. If we require proper licensing and registration for people to operate machinery designed to transport, why do we not require the same for machinery designed to kill? Mr. Speaker, we have heard from voices on both the left and the right calling for a ban on semi automatic weapons. I do not believe that such a ban would be practical at this point as so many citizens already own semi automatic weapons and it would be an overreach of our constitutional powers to confiscate such weaponry. Instead, I am introducing legislation to this body that would place a federal tax on each round purchased to be used in a semi automatic weapon. If there existed a $5 tax per bullet, it would have cost the Parkland shooter $91 for the 17 bullets used to kill those innocent lives. Included in this legislation will be a provision prohibiting the production, sale, and distribution of ammunition by private citizens without proper licensing from state and federal agencies. While this will not be the end to the gun violence crisis in our schools, it will surely decrease the frequency of it. Mr. Speaker I call on my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support this legislation and cosponsor it so we may reach a bipartisan solution to this issue. With that, I yield the floor.
