In a great victory for Florida’s law-abiding gun owners, the Florida Supreme Court agreed with our contention that the ballot summary was deceptive and would mislead voters.

The ballot initiative contained deceptive language to fool Florida voters in an attempt to ban millions of legal, commonly used firearms and shut down legitimate businesses all around Florida.

Supporters of the gun ban initiative used deceptive language to try to trick voters into supporting their gun ban claiming it would do one thing while knowing it would do much more.

Not to mention they fell far short of the needed verifiable signatures to get it on the ballot in the first place. Cinderella, Daffy Duck, and Yosemite Sam were all questionable signatures.

glad to hear that ruling. is it possible that the anti’s will try and appeal this decision to a higher court? leftist never give up on taking away civil rights from people. remember they were the party that supported slavery and remain the party of segregation, separating people into groups to cause friction.

It’s a State issue only. I don’t think the SCOTUS would accept an appeal on a ballot initiative. Good thing South Carolina does not allow them, only the Legislature can put something on the ballot.
