    The proof, as they say, will be in the pudding. Some municipality will still try to flex their anemic muscle, then we'll see if the state law takes care of it.

    come 10/1 it will be costly for some local official to flout the law 5k fine per violation and people can be held personally responsible

    If it really was paradise, then all the native Floridians that I know (like myself and my wife) wouldn't be yearning to move to North Carolina. We live in the extreme southern end of the state in the Miami area and believe me, it's not all that awesome. For many years we were like Texas used to be under democratic political leadership with a patchwork of anti-gun local and state laws. But now we're the GUNSHINE STATE in that respect and I'm forever looking for something similar in an area with mountains.

    Yes, south Florida is pretty lame, and I would never want to live there. However, Florida is definitely, proactively pursuing more freedoms for it's residents. Gun rights have definitely been a priority in the past year. Rick Scott seems to be really trying to get things back on track (from what I see on the news, every now and then).

    Cool

    You have to be north of Lake Okeechobee to get into the real Florida (Orlando not included) and that is slowly slipping to the wayside.

    My daughter lives in Alachua and and I really enjoy visiting there. The local sheriff has firearms training classes for civilians.

    I am sure the new state ruling will move us up a space or two in the next Brady Bunch ratings.

    Scott has done everything he said he would, so far, with no surprises. He's pro-gun and pro-life and is doing his best to bring fiscal responsibility to the State. But the news is covered with what a poor approval rating he has, (35% this week, up 8 points from a couple of weeks ago) I don't understand either. Unless the news is just "sour grapes" from the liberals.

    Definitely a good thing
    BUT it may have to be fought one county at a time. Check out Florida Carry and consider joining to help them ferret out the recalcitrant counties and make them follow the law.

    No kidding.

    Palm Beach, Dade and Broward counties have been largely lost to hyper-liberal transplants from the N.E., particularly NY/NJ. Doing what I can down here in Palm Beach county and hoping the rest of the state isn't in such demographic disrepair.

    that's why when I came to FLA I avoided places where the "sophisticated" (haha) new york types went to, while every other person in my area is not from FLA the people here seem to be cut from a different cloth.
