Florida Law Eliminates Gun Restrictions

August 17, 2011 by  

Governor Rick Scott has signed into law the Penalties for Violating Firearms Preemption Law, a statute that forces the repeal of all regulations that would be passed in an effort to violate Second Amendment rights.The Florida State Legislature has taken significant steps toward eliminating restrictions that had been previously placed on firearms, according to The New American.

Helping to protect 2nd Amendment rights for citizens, the measures would impose penalties on public officials who pass or enforce gun regulations at the State level, reported the website.

Legislators who violate the law face punishments that include a $5,000 personal fine and the risk of being removed from office by the Governor of Florida. The State has already enacted legislation that made it illegal to pass regulations beyond those that were imposed in 1987, The New American reported.

The enacting of the legislation in Florida comes while the State Congress is in recess, a time when gun law expert John M. Snyder notes that Americans should go to their Representatives and proclaim their support for less regulation concerning firearms, an essay for GunRightsPolicies.org read.
