He is being sued by Florida Carry, but refers to them as the NRA.

[email protected] NRA didn't sue you, we did. The case against YOU was dropped months ago. You did counter sue US. Try FACTS. Your lies abound.

How to Fight the NRA

I’m being personally sued by the gun lobby.
In 2014, as a Tallahassee City Commissioner, my colleagues and I refused to repeal ordinances that prevent shooting guns in a public park.
So making guns illegal in a public park prevents shootings in them? Alert the press!

Because of our actions that day, and our commitment to the safety of our citizens, my fellow locally elected officials and I are facing fines of $5,000 per vote, damages up to $100,000, and the potential to be removed from our elected jobs by the Governor of Florida. We have also been forced to find our own lawyers to defend us in Court.

Although nobody should be against these types of common sense laws, this lawsuit isn’t about guns. It’s about huge special interests, in this case the National Rifle Association (NRA), spending big money to take away local voices and local control, using tactics called preemption and super-preemption.
But we are fighting back in Florida.

At trial, we have challenged the constitutionality of the laws that are being used to attack our local communities and officials. We have carried that fight to the First District Court of Appeals of Florida, and are set to hear Oral Argument on January 10, 2017.
We have had great support in this effort from state and national partners, and we hope to set a precedent for challenging these “super-preemption†overreaches. Our partners recognize that if these threats are deployed today by the gun lobby, there’s nothing stopping special interests from coming after protections for immigrants, the LGBT community, the environment, and others.
We want to stand up to these bullies everywhere they show up.
I can't wait til Florida Carry wins this one

Perhaps I'm missing something.

Cities in Florida can have ordinances that conflict with the law? I thought public parks were legal to carry into.

The city did not ban carry in parks. What they banned was discharging guns in parks - without providing an exception for self-defense.

If you provided an exception for self-defense, that'd just allow the gang bangers to shoot each other and claim self-defense.

Same as when GA allowed carry on Marta. That just allows someone to take a gun on a bus and hijack it.

It's amazing how uppity local officials can get when the laws they wish to violate have personal liability clauses attached to them. :lol:
