Yes, before 1995 every little town could have their own firearms ordinances. With 72 counties, just think of the number of municipalities there are throughout the state and how many ordinances a fella would have to deal with.
Just think, one little town could define something with possession of a firearm as a felony, and BANG! They take ALL your guns FOREVER.
So, in 1995 the legislature enacted 66.0409. The intent was to level the playing field, make all the laws the same as state law, so citizens couldn't be charged with these little gun violations. Now they want to REPEAL 66.0409.
and so it continues....,.
