FLORIDA PREEMPTION STATUTE
In 2011, Florida enacted an extreme preemption measure designed to severely restrict local authority to regulate firearms, and personally punish local legislators who cause a preempted law to be passed or enforced. Florida Statutes section 790.33(1) provides:

Except as expressly provided by the State Constitution or general law, the Legislature hereby declares that it is occupying the whole field of regulation of firearms and ammunition, including the purchase, sale, transfer, taxation, manufacture, ownership, possession, storage, and transportation thereof, to the exclusion of all existing and future county, city, town, or municipal ordinances or any administrative regulations or rules adopted by local or state government relating thereto. Any such existing ordinances, rules, or regulations are hereby declared null and void.
Not only does section 790.33 declare that the state of Florida occupies “the whole field” of firearms regulation, it also subjects local legislators to personal liability and removal from office for their votes in that field. In a subsection titled “penalties,” section 790.33(3) provides:

[a]ny person . . . that violates the Legislature’s occupation of the whole field of regulation of firearms and ammunition . . . by enacting or causing to be enforced any local ordinance or administrative rule or regulation impinging upon such exclusive occupation of the field shall be liable.1
Specifically, a local official who knowingly and willfully violates the statute shall be fined up to $5,000;2 may not be indemnified for the costs of defending himself or herself;3 and may be removed from office by the governor.4 Florida’s law was the first in the nation to provide that a local legislator can be held financially liable and removed from office for “enacting or causing to be enforced” a local ordinance that impinges upon the field of firearms regulation.

Florida Statutes sections 125.0107 and 166.044 also prohibit counties and municipalities, respectively, from adopting any ordinance relating to the possession or sale of ammunition.

 

West Palm Beach Mayor went against his residents and FL Statue by signing an unconstitutional order & suspended legal Rights to Carry a weapon in public, concealed or otherwise. And is in direct violation of both FL Statue and Constitutional Rights afforded by the 2nd Amendment. In addition his order enacted the suspension of the sale of firearms & ammunition. This order directly places Law Abiding Citizens in harms way! It removes their ability to protect themselves, their loved ones, their lively hood, or their possessions. It further removes the ability to Stand Your Ground (§ 776.012(2)) & use of Castle Doctrine (§ 776.013). This is nothing short of tyranny at a time when citizens need protection the most! Remember any law or act Repugnant to the Constitution is null & void. 

 

We herby demand that the Mayor of West Palm Beach be immediately removed permanently from office & Fined personally under the Statue mentioned above.
