She's on a mission.
Yep she wants a handgun ban, no CCW, and she's in Denial.
Amy sounds like a good candidate for a Georgia Probate Judge.
I could understand suspending a CCW with cause ... but you don't get my guns and ammo without a fight
Got to love due process.
Miami-Dade County prosecutors announced last week, as did Broward on Tuesday, that they are filing motions with the courts to require that people charged with felonies and violent misdemeanors give up their licenses to carry guns.

Guilty until proven innocent?
What's wrong with that?
That was a rhetorical question, but if you really want me to expound upon it, well... How much time do you have?
Well thats the way the law is written. Is it a real surprise when someone finally decides to enforce it.

Accused means you are guilty, until you can prove otherwise.
Duke lacross players comes to mind as the most recent big headline.
This Judge is just following the law. The Lautenberg Amendment to the Gun Control Act of 1968 prohibits persons with a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction from owning, transporting, or using a firearm. It was effective in 1996, I believe. The law stinks, but it is the law.
Being convicted is not the same as being accused.
Does Florida law (or federal law, for that matter) justify seizing firearms licenses from those accused of certain misdemeanors?
If so, then maybe the judge is just finally doing what should have been done all along.
If not, then she may be acting without any justification in the law.

I do not believe there are any federal laws relating to state firearms licenses other than the gun free school zones act (declaring resident state licenses to be an exception to this unconstitutional law) and NICS (declaring certain licenses to be an exemption from NICS checks at point of purchase).
Transportation from one state that allows carry, through a state that does not, with a destination of another that allows it... GCA 1968
A state such as Georgia that says you cannot get a license or one can be revoked from
(1) Any person who is prohibited from possessing firearms pursuant to 18 U.S.C. Section 922;
That is my question, I suppose. Does Florida have a law that authorizes what she is doing, in which case that means that the law has been violated all this time, or is she the one violating the law?
