Local Government Infringement/State preemption of Gun Rights
Florida law declares that the State has “occupied the field” when it comes to the regulation of firearms in Florida. Except in very limited circumstances, local governments and law enforcement agencies cannot establish their own policies regarding firearms, they must follow state law. Despite the law being clear, anti-gun politicians, state attorneys, police departments and sheriffs still attempt to regulate firearms and infringe upon lawful ownership. If this has happened to you or you believe this is happening in your community contact Cord to determine if state law is being violated. You have to obey the law and so should those elected to public office, hold them accountable.
