FL Sarasota County Delegation Opposes Repealing ‘Stand Your Ground’ Statute


Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- Last week, the Sarasota City Commission met with the Sarasota County Legislative Delegation to present the city’s list of legislative priorities.

One of those priorities requested the legislative delegation to work to repeal Florida’s “Stand your Ground” statute.

Fortunately, the four legislators attending this meeting disagreed with the city commission and oppose repealing the “Stand your Ground” statute.

Thank you to everyone who e-mailed the members of the Sarasota County Legislative Delegation urging them to oppose the city commissions request to repeal Florida’s “Stand your Ground” statute.  Your voices were heard.

No further action is needed at this time and we will continue to keep you posted on any firearm and hunting-related issues.

Just because a trail and the media made a mess of stand your ground laws, do not mean it is a bad law. It was only gun grabbers going after us again.
