FLORIAC GUNS LEGISLATION, FLORISOTA LAW, MARSHALL LAW – One of the state’s most controversial gun laws that was passed in 2013 to curb gun violence has been repealed, as it was deemed unconstitutional, according to the Florida House of Representatives on Monday.
The legislation was one of three that had passed through the state legislature, which was controlled by Republicans until last year when the Democrat controlled the House.
The other two had the same fate.
In the wake of the 2016 elections, Republican Gov.
Rick Scott signed the measure into law.
The House Bill 2 ban on carrying concealed weapons for personal protection was designed to limit the availability of firearms in certain parts of the county, where the majority of the people live.
The law, which took effect in January 2017, banned concealed carry in the following counties: Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Orange, Palm Harbor, Nassau, and Volusia counties.
However, the bill was struck down by the Florida Supreme Court in February 2017 for being unconstitutional.
Under the decision, the court ruled that the ban on the possession of firearms for personal defense does not apply to Florida.
The Florida House Judiciary Committee voted to remove the ban from the state law, the committee’s leader, Rep. Ed Royce, R-Boca Raton, said in a statement.
Under the new law, those who are convicted of a felony, and those convicted of the first-degree murder of someone, are required to register as a person prohibited from owning or possessing firearms, according the House Judiciary Report.
Those convicted of misdemeanors are required by law to register for a period of time, depending on the severity of the charge.
The bill also created a registry of people who are prohibited from possessing firearms and required them to notify law enforcement when they have been convicted of any felony.
The registry is supposed to be available for anyone to view.
The House Judiciary report also found that the law was unconstitutional.
It said the law violates the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, which guarantees an individual right to bear arms.
The law was part of a package of legislation that included bills to expand the state gun laws and allow for the expansion of concealed carry permits to include the elderly and the disabled.
The bills were passed in response to a spike in violent crime in the city of Miami in the wake to Hurricane Matthew in October, when the city experienced more than 1,200 homicides.
