    Florida adds "teeth" to their preemption.

    This is what we need in Wisconsin to keep the Soglins of the state at bay.
    Here's the summary:

    I haven't found the actual text of the bill yet but here's a quote from the summary.

    ETA: Text is under "bill text" with clickable links that I was too blind to see.

    Regulation of Firearms and Ammunition: Clarifies & reorganizes provisions that preempt to state entire field of regulation of firearms; prohibits knowing & willful violation of Legislature's occupation of whole field of regulation of firearms & ammunition by enactment or causation of enforcement of any local ordinance or administrative rule or regulation; provides additional intent of section; eliminates provisions authorizing counties to adopt ordinance requiring waiting period between purchase & delivery of handgun; provides injunctive relief from enforcement of invalid ordinance, regulation, or rule; provides civil penalty for knowing & willful violation of prohibitions; provides that public funds may not be used to defend or reimburse unlawful conduct of person charged with knowing & willful violation of act; provides for termination of employment or contract or removal from office of person acting in official capacity who knowingly & willfully violates any provision of act; provides for declaratory & injunctive relief for specified persons or organizations; provides for specified damages & interest; provides exceptions to prohibitions of section.

    I know it's an effort but try scrolling down to "Bill Text" - more interesting is the Bill Analysis. Thanks for bring it to everybody's attention.

    Howdy Amigo!
    I've only checked out that summary included in your post, but that sounds like a dynamic and powerful piece of legislation in defense of the rights of citizens. (for a change)

    I hope folks in every state get a copy of that summary to their legilsators and demand similar legislation in every state in the union. Even Illinois!

    Blessings,
