    Exclamation URGENT! Florida Preemption Enforcement HB45 FILED TODAY!!!

    I've been hinting at this pending legislation for several weeks now, but it was necessary to keep it under wraps in order to prevent opponents from killing it before it took its first breath. This morning, House Bill 45 was filed at 7:41AM by Representative Matt Gaetz. Marion Hammer and the NRA are behind it.

    Mostly limits against Government Abuse of Power, and actual penalties for violating it. I'd love to see it, but Florida thrives on abusing power. I don't think anyone in the House will vote it up...

    House Bill 45 is a WINNER! The ONLY Problem with this Bill is that $5 Million is NOT a Realistic Amount, nor is a Third-Degree Felony Punishment, however; a $1000 Fine (after Damages and Court Ordered Awards) and a Class A Misdemeanor Punishment would most Probably be a little bit better..., and Senate Bill 234 is good too!

    Maybe The Georgia General Assembly will Consider Adopting something of this Nature this Legislative Session here in Georgia!

    Those are not problems. Those are negotiable elements. They can be used as bones to throw to the opposition without negatively impacting the overall effectiveness of the bill. If you ask for the moon and the stars, and only end up with the moon, you're still ahead!
