    Governor Rick Scott SIGNED two priority Second Amendment bills yesterday.


    House Bill 155, Privacy of Firearms Owners, sponsored by state Representative Jason Brodeur (R-33) and Senator Greg Evers (R-2) will STOP pediatricians from invading privacy rights of gun owners and bringing anti-gun politics into medical examining rooms was signed into law on June 1 and will take effect IMMEDIATELY.

    Houses Bill 45, Penalties for Violating Firearms Preemption Law, sponsored by state Representative Matt Gaetz (R-4) and Senator Joe Negron (R-28) will STOP local politicians and governments from violating Florida law by providing penalties for willful violations was also signed into law on June 1 and will take effect on October 1, 2011. The delay in the effective date is to allow agencies and local governments to REPEAL any and all regulations, policies, and ordinances that violate Florida’s firearms preemption law. Beginning October 1, citizens and organizations may bring actions against agencies and governments for violating Florida’s firearms preemption law.

    That was on a different bill, which passed the house and senate, but honestly I don't know what happened to it after that. I do know they watered down the bill from open carry to no prosecution for inadvertenly exposing. I'll check on it and let you know.

    This is going to get interesting fast. The city of St Petersburg is pushing the Council and the Mayor's office to thumb their noses at HB 45 and its precursor, due to 8 out of 11 murders so far this year being committed by firearms on the street. They're poised to challenge this.

    Sorry, should have included this link when I first posted this.

    I wouldn't set foot near St. Petersburg without a gun on my hip. Last time I stopped at a gas station in that city, I had several gang-member looking men approach my car trying to get me to buy crack. The downtown area of that city is nice, but anywhere past that is a disaster.

    Glad to see Florida coming around with some better gun laws.

    I'm boycotting St. Pete after the Pinellas county Sheriff shot off his mouth at the hearings over open carry, saying he would have his deputy's "draw down" on anyone openly carring a firearm. He also states that "peoples rights should be granted in a responsible way". What an IDIOT! If it's a right it doesn't have to be granted.

    St Pete?,used to live there years ago.Now it`s WAY out of control with all the crackheads and hood boys running around robbing,carjacking,murdering etc. I wouldn`t go there without a fully loaded Ak-47!!. Orlando isn`t far behind either.
