If you have been living under a rock lately you may have missed the push by states to get 10th amendment resolutions passed. These are to remind the Federal Government of States Rights and State Sovereignty.
Most recently Montana passed a fantastic piece of legislation called the Montana Firearms Freedom Bill. What does this bill do? Simple, It tells the Federal Government that any firearms or ammunition created, built or sold in the state of Montana are not subject to Federal Legislation.
Representative O’Toole has introduced such legislation in the Florida House. Her bill HB-21 is almost the same as the Montana Bill. When I called her office for comment she was out of town. But I will be following up with her about the bill. I hope everyone interested in the bill in the State of Florida will call all of his or her Representatives in the State House to support this bill.
Also there is a rumor that Sen. Carey Baker is going to introduce a companion bill in the Florida Senate. Sen. Baker is currently running for Commissioner of Agriculture in Florida. This office oversees concealed weapons permits among other things.
This will be a great issue to watch and hopefully get passed!
