One Reason I Moved to Florida

Guns are allowed:
The Florida State legislature has taken steps towards securing Second Amendment rights by eliminating restrictions on firearms. The measures, which will be enacted on October 1, will impose penalties on public officials who pass or enforce gun regulations at the state level. Violators face a $5,000 personal fine and may risk being removed from office by the governor. 
It seems that in 1987 the legislature passed a law saying that it was illegal to pass any gun laws outside of the state-level laws, but there was no enforcement mechanism. Because of that, towns and cities passed laws all willy-nilly, making the state a quilt of different gun laws. No longer!
