Florida bans local gun control ordinances throughout state

Bill: CS/CS/CS/HB 45 (text)

Sponsored by Rep. Matt Gaetz and signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott, HB45 (The Penalties for Violating Firearms Preemption Law) repeals any and all regulations, policies, and ordinances that violate Florida’s firearms preemption law of 1987 (f.s.790.33)–a law that makes it illegal to pass gun restrictions beyond those enacted by the state legislature. State public officials who attempt to introduce local gun control ordinances incur a $5,000 fine and possible termination. Local municipalities attempting gun control will be sued for up to $100,000 plus court costs.
