Florida’s tough pre-emption laws have been an absolute boon to concealed carry. State law pre-empting local law has been a feature of our legal system forever, but in Florida, some areas (I’m looking at you, Palm Beach) deciding they were going to make up their own gun laws, and so the Florida legislature dropped the hammer hard, and with good reason.
But the idea that local jurisdictions here in Florida don’t get to make up their own gun laws is under attack, with no less that four different bills this legislative session intent on repealing this vital law that protects Florida’s gun owners.
Call your state rep and your state senator. Let them know you care about your gun rights.
