Florida Carry

Florida - -( Leesburg FL (March 14th, 2012) As was reported in December, the City of Leesburg, FL has decided to stick by its anti-gun laws in direct defiance of state law and their own city charter.

Leesburg City Manager Jay Evans has flatly refused our requests that the city repeal its firearm ordinances, in compliance with state preemption of firearms law.

City Manager Evans stated that:

“Any action taken in the future regarding the existence of these laws in our Code of Ordinances will be done at the discretion, pleasure, and timing of the Leesburg City Commission.”

The City of Leesburg, and its manager, have remained openly defiant for months. Abiding by state law is not optional and our members demand that we have compliance.

On behalf of our members, and pursuant to our organization’s mission, Florida Carry, Inc. has filed a complaint with the Florida circuit court in Lake County to demand that they follow the law.

Florida Carry is not being “over-zealous with the rhetoric” as City Manager Evans has said.

Florida Carry Executive Director Sean Caranna put it very clearly:

“This isn’t rhetoric, this is the law, and we are done waiting for the city to obey it. We demand compliance now.”

More cases are being prepared now against other jurisdictions that continue to violate your right to bear arms. We can’t do this work without your support.

About: Florida Carry, Inc. is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots organization dedicated to advancing the fundamental civil right of all Floridians to keep and bear arms for self defense as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article I Section 8 of the Florida Constitution. Florida Carry stands only to represent our members and the over 7 million gun owners of Florida. We are not beholden to any national organization’s agenda that may compromise that mission.

Florida Carry works tirelessly toward striking down ill-conceived gun control laws that have been proven to provide safe havens to criminals and be deadly to law abiding citizens.

    1. Some rights are more equal than others.

      This is yet another clear example of the “powers that be” choosing to actively disregard your rights as a human being and as a citizen.

      Perhaps the Leesburg citizens need to understand THEIR powers of having Leesburg City officials investigated for willful neglect of their statutory duty(ies) through the people’s Grand Jury? Possibly finding more than the alledged high crimes and have them removed from office and/or incarcerrated?

    3. When the time come’s, they will be voted out, or maybe, the court case, will take care of them. Leesburg officials have to play by the rule’s

      Maybe the CCW holders of Fla should have an armed march.

      I follow state law when I carry in Florida. I have carried in Florida for many years and have a Florida License to Carry. Why does this city think they are special?
