Florida Gun Owners to Law Enforcement: Violate Our Rights & We Will Sue You

TALLAHASSEE, FL – -(AmmoLand.com)- Florida Carry, Inc. has put Florida’s top cops on notice: Stop violating the rights of law-abiding gun owners or you will get sued.

In a letter sent to every sheriff and police chief in the state (SEE ATTACHED), Florida Carry notes, “Despite the well-established right, our members have been repeatedly victimized and deprived of their rights by various law enforcement agencies and their respective officers and deputies. Too many individuals in law enforcement throughout the state have harassed, berated, belittled, arrested, and even killed law-abiding citizens going about their personal business, for simply exercising their constitutionally protected right to bear arms.”

The letter goes on to detail instances where the rights of their members, as well as other Floridians, have been violated by law enforcement officers who were either ignorant of, directed to or simply refused to comply with the law.

Florida Carry is demanding that frontline law enforcement officers receive proper training on how to interact with law-abiding citizens who are simply exercising their legal rights.

Further, they warn that incidents, where these rights are violated, will result in legal action.

“If your officers and deputies do not receive this more thorough and appropriate training and continue to violate our rights, we will respond. We will bring lawsuit after lawsuit until the message is delivered.”

Now that law enforcement has been put on proper notice, Florida Carry hopes that its members will now be able to exercise their right to keep and bear arms without incident. But should this not be the case and legal action is required, law enforcement agencies can no longer claim “ignorance” as a defense.

“We have cataloged and continue to catalog the violations of our rights. We will use this letter and these onerous violations in court. We will show that you were made aware of the consequences of your persistent failure to properly train your officers and deputies. We will show that law enforcement statewide has repeatedly violated the rights of gun owners and yet you did nothing.”

“We will demand criminal prosecution of officers and deputies who violate our rights.”

I have been a member for several years now and am happy that fl carry is doing this, I have had my magazine emptied and swept with my own handgun during a vehicle stop because I was sitting in a vehicle when an alarm went off inside the store.

Well done Florida Carry! I only wish gun owners in The Most Corrupt state of ILL would get on board and mimic your excellent letter.

I don’t know what it takes to get gun owners organized to participate in all aspects of citizenship. Only then can we defeat the traitors.

Here in the United States politicians have been passing into law restrictive gun control laws for “over” ninety (90) years now. Presidents and Governors have been ignorantly signing them into law. All supposedly for the same purpose and none of them have worked, EVER! Not one has ever made a citizen safer or more secure. Do the politicians in VA, FL or any other state not know that? If so why do they not know that fact? Furthermore, if laws passed do not do what they were passed to do why are they still on the books. Do these politicians… Read more »

Doing the same legislation over and over is the same thing as telling the same lie over and over, stupid people will believe it to be the truth.
The MSM has graduated from having smart journalists to stupid people who have easily been indoctrinated into leftist lies.

Vern — Studies have been done, and have been proven, that if you repeat something often enough, usually around seven times, even if it’s a lie, it becomes its own truth. It has something to do with a deep-seated psychology: one that makes it easier to believe something than it does all the work it takes to disprove it. And because you posted on Jesus bearing a sword of defense, that this is why I am of the opinion that he said of it in St. Matthew 18:21 and 22. “Then came Peter to him, saying, ‘Lord, how often shall… Read more »

Time is being shortened as Jesus said it would be, the way it is happening is by how fast the events leading to the end are now occurring.

All of them will claim “qualified immunity” which is a BS cover they hide under for their violations of rights. About the only way they MIGHT be able to get some traction is by suing in FEDERAL court and use 18 USC 42 DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW.

no law enforcement officer in the country should have qualified immunity. if they violate anyone’s civil rights they should be held as accountable as we would be by those same people.

About time, sue and make examples to avoid infringement. Nothing will change by sitting on your butt and whining.

There is no need to sue them and possibly lose. Best to have them legally removed from office based on Constitution which says if representatives do not serve the peoples interest, the people have the right to throw them out.

Easier said than done. Too often, balloting and/or other aspects of elections are totally rigged.

Will: “Short term results”? Hardly. Suing them till their insurance companies refuse to issue policies is not a short term result, it is a goal where ultimately, the plaintiff bankrupts the locality. It that occurs it is a guaranteed wake up notice to voters and far easier to achieve, in many cases, than “just removing them from office”, especially when they have been entrenched for years.

Local government pays for lawsuits from taxpayers pockets. Nothing influences elections like money. So this approach offers department opportunity to prevent bad behavior before it occurs, then lawsuit raises funds while raising public awareness of the issue, and finally provides fodder for electoral opponents. This is not “either or” but supports electoral efforts.

Yup, sue the tyrants who would disavow their oath. Sue the tyrants who would deny or delay any American citizen their lawful, righteous, GOD given right of self defense and/or their rights to keep and bear arms.

Arm up, carry on.
