A Florida legislator wants anyone trying to buy ammunition to complete an  anger management program first, in what critics say is the latest example of  local lawmakers reaching for constitutionally-dubious solutions to the problem  of gun violence.

The bill filed Saturday by state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, would  require a three-day waiting period for the sale of any firearm and the sale of  ammunition to anyone who has not completed anger management courses. The  proposal would require ammo buyers to take the anger management courses every 10  years.

“This is not about guns,” Gibson said. “This is about ammunition and not only  for the safety of the general community, but also for the safety of law  enforcement.”

Gibson said she’s concerned with citizens stockpiling ammunition, potentially  creating dangerous situations should those individuals ever come in contact with  law enforcement agencies or criminals.
