Florida Supreme Court upholds state law banning local governments from implementing restrictions on guns

The Florida Supreme Court rejected a challenge to a state law on Thursday that prevents local officials from implementing restrictions on gun and ammunition sales.

Florida passed a law in 1987 that preempts cities and counties from creating restrictions on guns that go beyond state law, then added civil penalties and fines for local officials who violate that law in 2011.

Several local governments challenged the penalty provision of the law after 17 people were shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. Former Democratic Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who left office earlier this month, joined multiple municipalities in suing the state.

Used to be that way in VA before the dims/libs/progs/socialists won control of both houses and the governor's office 3 years ago. They changed that law and allowed all kinds of silly stuff to happen in the cities/towns/counties they control. So far I've not heard much talk of going back the other way but those anti-Constitution people still control the state senate here. Hoping the election this year changes that.

In defiance of the law, liberal pols here arrogantly passed illegal local laws that violated state gun statutes pertaining to preemption. It was only after FL added teeth to its preemption statute by holding complicit politicians financially and personally accountable for their actions that those local ordinances and enforcement of them began to go away.

We need that at the national level, too. Make them pay for knowingly trying to go against "the law of the land."
