Florida Bill Would Virtually Nullify All Federal Gun Laws

By Michael Maharrey

Florida State FlagThe Florida legislature will consider a bill that would prohibit any state agency from cooperating with enforcement of any federal gun laws – past, present or future.

Rep. Dan Eagle (R-Cape Coral) introduced HB733 on Monday. The Second Amendment Preservation Act declares that no agent of the state or its political subdivisions may participate with or assist federal agents in the enforcement of federal firearms laws, or provide material support of any kind to federal agents in the enforcement of these laws. State agents and/or contractors who knowingly participate in or provide support for the enforcement of federal firearms laws would be subject to dismissal.

“The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution expressly provides that all powers not delegated to the federal government are reserved to the states. Time and time again, Florida has proven that we have the best solutions to our own issues, whether it be healthcare, education, or our balanced budget, which is accomplished without raising taxes. When it comes to protecting our fundamental Second Amendment rights guaranteed by the Constitution, I believe it is best left to be handled by Floridians for Floridians,” Eagle said.

The legislation would not attempt to stop federal agents from enforcing gun laws, but would pull the plug on any state cooperation, leaving enforcement in the hands of a federal government incapable of enforcing its laws.

    And then the FEDS will tie any or all Federal Funding back to Florida as a requirement to enforcement their Federal Laws. I would suggest expanding this Bill to allow all Floridians to stop paying any and all Federal Taxes all together, and send half Federal Tax Payments to the State of Florida to eliminate any and all Federal acceptance of Federal Funding as we can stand on our own, and Arrest any Federal agents trying to enforce their federal laws in the state. The Feds need to follow the 2nd amendment and stop making up bogus rules that violate this Lawof the land.
