    Florida Governor refuses to ban firearms

    Gotta like this:

    Gov. Rick Scott rejects request to ban concealed weapons outside GOP convention in Tampa

    TAMPA, Fla. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has rejected a request to ban visitors from carrying concealed weapons in downtown Tampa during the Republican National Convention in August.

    The request came from Mayor Bob Buckhorn, who wrote Scott to ask for an executive order to override state and federal laws allowing people with concealed weapons permits to carry firearms.

    [...]

    Scott wrote that "it is unclear how disarming law-abiding citizens would better protect them from the dangers and threats posed by those who would flout the law."

    See link for whole article.

    Question

    I thought Florida was a preemption state, anyway?

    Fantastic? I'd say it was lukewarm at best. Fantastic would be something along the lines of: "I, nor anyone else in government has the authority to enact such a ban".
    Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.

    That's a typical politician for you: no credit left unclaimed.
