Florida – -(Ammoland.com)- In 2011, at the urging of the NRA and Unified Sportsmen of Florida, the Florida Legislature passed HB-155 by Rep. Jason Brodeur & Sen. Greg Evers to stop doctors from interrogating patients about gun ownership.

And prevent them from entering gun ownership information into medical databases — thereby creating a defacto database of gun owners.

Simply put, physicians interrogating and lecturing parents and children about guns is not about gun safety. It is a political agenda to ban guns.

Parents do not take their children to physicians for a political lecture against the ownership of firearms, they go there for medical care.

The final version of the bill which passed both the House and Senate by over 2/3 vote.

However, numerous national level organizations (known to be anti-gun) filed a lawsuit to stop enforcement of the new law and the legal battle has now spanned 4 years.  The latest ruling issued yesterday by the 11th District Court of Appeals upheld the law .

When this is allowed to happen, I feel that it sets up a very legitimate animosity towards hunters and guns because hunting and subdivision should not occur in the same sentence. I would appreciate any recommendations that may… Read more »

Do you have a representative that can participate in a debate about the positive aspects of hunting? Or do you know of someone? We have a person debating on the side of why hunting should be discouraged. This would be a live debate on Wednesday, September 16th at 11:05 AM EDT. The station is in Tampa, Florida that reaches a potential audience of 4 1/2 million people and, beyond that, it has active listeners on the Internet. If you know of someone who could meet this challenge, they need not be in the Tampa area, as the station could call… Read more »

As a resident of Florida for over 45 years, I feel very fortunate to have Marion Hammer being a strong advocate for gun rights in our state and for pushing legislation that makes the Second Amendment in our state strong. She is responsible for pushing legislation enacting concealed carry, stand your ground, the castle doctrine, docs and glocks and many more gun right issues over the years. I am sorry that the other 49 states don’t have Marion Hammers in their corners, pushing legislators for common sense gun laws. The people of Florida are deeply indebted to Ms Hammer and… Read more »
