As one of the libbiest libs that ever libbed a lib, I would just like to say...I'm glad to see the 'state's rights' legislature working to trample the rights of counties and municipalities. Some of these small city and county governments are insane with power.Now, If only the state would demand all municipal and county agencies be required to submit all contracts to an open and fair bidding system. If only the state would enforce it's own Florida 'Sunshine Laws' that DEMAND ALL government meetings be held in an open, public location. If only written minutes or transcripts were required for all financial meetings.
Dimensio: Florida's preemption of local firearm regulation was recently reported prior to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, when city officials wanted permission from the governor to temporarily prohibit the carrying of concealed weapons by license holders in certain areas of the city. Their request was denied, and numerous civilian disarmament advocates predicted that concealed weapons permit holders would commit acts of violence in affected areas.Strangely, I am unable to locate any reports of such violent incidents.
potterydove: Good. Local political subdivisions only exist with the permission the each state in which they reside. If the state wants to preempt certain local legislation, it is within its rights to do so.*
