Florida Got It Backward


(from Wirecutter)

Florida arms tax collectors

USA – -( “A Central Florida tax collector says a new policy will allow his employees to openly carry firearms while they work,” The Associated Press reports. “Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg told the Orlando Sentinel that according to Florida law, he and his employees are considered ‘revenue officers’ and are exempt from the state’s ban on the open carrying of firearms while performing their duties.”

The rationale behind the move is to save taxpayers money by eliminating the need to hire private security.

“Tax collector Joel Greenberg says he is a ‘big believer in the Second Amendment,’” letter to the editor writer Gordon Crawford points out in the Orlando Sentinel. “If that is truly the case, he would know that this constitutional amendment was put in place to protect the public from government tyranny, not to arm the government.”

Not to mention, just this past week, a Floridian judge backed-off of the State’s Stand Your Ground Law.

We must remain vigilant, People!  ‘They’ aren’t done yet.

They should understand, neither are we.

  2. That’s pretty much how the irs ‘assumed’ law enforcement ‘powers’ via acquiring them via ‘executive fiat’. A collection agency has NO business acquiring enforcement powers…………………

  4. Right after that decision, one of the best known attorneys for 2A cases in Florida was asked what it meant. He said, “Absolutely nothing.” It only matters in his court and would be overthrown in a heartbeat if anyone challenged it.
