Local governments in Florida continue to violate Florida's Firearms Preemption law and force citizens to bring lawsuits to protect their statutory and Constitutional rights. 

In an action brought against Sumter County by State Rep. Cord Byrd to protect the rights of a teacher adversely affected by their illegal actions, the 5th DCA has ruled that Sumter County had indeed violated the law and the rights of the plaintiff.

Rep. Cord Byrd, an attorney, is a strong advocate for Second Amendment rights and fights for Second Amendment rights in the Courts, as well as the Florida House of Representatives, including the fight to close loopholes manufactured by anti-gun local officials and local governments who willfully and knowingly violate the law in order to deny Second Amendment rights of law-abiding people.
