The gun control got the support of State Sen. Tom Lee, the same Sen. who voted to reinstate disgraced Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel in October 2019.
The Miami Herald reports the new controls are aimed at private sales at gun shows.
They require a gun seller “to check the person’s ID to make sure they’re legally allowed to own the weapon and fill out a form recording the transaction.” The vendor would check these things via a “form” which “would include a list of questions for the buyer, such as whether they’re a felon, a fugitive from justice, or have anything else in their history that would prevent them from owning a gun.”
But Sen. Tom Lee defended the gun control vote, saying, “This committee bill is our best effort to try to improve public safety on the margins here.
