HB 455, sponsored by Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, D-Orlando, would prohibit possession and sale of "military-style assault weapons" and "large-capacity" ammunition magazines. It was pre-filed January 22 — the day before a gunman murdered five women in a Sebring bank. The bill has little chance for adoption but a petition drive to get a constitutional measure before voters in 2020 is gaining momentum.
SB 466, the Senate companion to Guillermo Smith's "assault weapons" ban, introduced by Sen. Gary Farmer, D-Ft. Lauderdale. It has been referred to the Senate Judiciary, Criminal Justice and Rules committees.
SB 500, introduced by Sen. Linda Stewart, D-Orlando, which would prohibit the "distributing, transporting, transferring, selling, or giving of an 'assault weapon' or 'large-capacity magazine.'" A "grandfathered" ban, referred to the Senate Criminal Justice and Appropriations committees and the Criminal and Civil Justice subcommittee.
