Florida ballot measure on assault weapons ban

FoxA Miami-based political committee has proposed a constitutional amendment that would ban possession of “assault” weapons in Florida if approved by voters.

The proposal, backed by the committee Ban Assault Weapons Now, was posted on the state Division of Elections website this month. The committee had raised nearly $410,000 since March, while spending almost $284,000, according to finance information. The expenditures included $75,000 last month to a California-based company for what was described in the finance information as “petitions.”

The antis have had success pushing ballot measures in the past, though they usually try for "background checks" rather than assault weapons bans. This is opening a new front on the ballot measure idea. Will it work? We'll find out, I guess.
