[url]http://www.3dca.flcourts.org/3d01-1027.pdf[/url] It is about time. This is 1 of dozens of illegal laws Miami has continued to pass in spite of Florida's Pre-emption of all lcoal gun laws. But, the 3rd District Court of Florida has now told Miami where they could put their illegal laws. You gotta love the words: NULL AND VOID. Now, it is time to challange the other illegal laws in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach. I posted a link to the actual ruling since neither the Miami Herald or Sun Sentinel will publish the stinging defeat to the miami gun grabbers on their web sites.

other cities and palm beach county followed their lead. when it was pointed out to be illegal, the pbc gov't attitude was 'we will leave it on the books and if you don't like it, take us to court' let's see if they repeal it without legal action.

Glad to see this. Anyone know the details of the law that was struck down?

local gov't and county passing illegal ordinance requiring gun locks, even though they knew they were prohibited from passing any firearms laws by state law.

Just love that "if you don't like it, take us to court". Ok who's money are they using to pay their attorney's fees???? I want a new law that if these asinine politicians enact illegal laws they themselves have to pay court costs, your lawyer's fees, pain and suffering, and what ever else you can get from the court when you win. Maybe this would stop these stupid laws and lawsuits.

Good news. We had a similar problem with cities banning SURs altogether (above and beyond state law, which requires registration of SURs), so the CRPA brought the cities to court and got the local bans thrown out every time. IIRC, Our courts never even got involved. The fear of a lawsuit was enough.
