A guide to Florida gun restrictions and what you need to know article The US Supreme Court will consider a case on whether the Florida constitution protects the right of citizens to keep and bear arms, including the right to bear arms in public, according to local news outlets.
Lawyers for gun rights groups will be arguing the constitutionality of the state’s “stand your ground” law on Wednesday, in the latest in a series of cases challenging the law.
The case, which has been under appeal for over a year, will determine whether a Florida law protecting the right for individuals to defend themselves against others is constitutional.
“This case is about protecting Floridians from criminals, not gun violence,” said Florida Gun Owners of America (GFOA), a national gun rights group.
“There are millions of Floridian families who depend on our laws to keep their children safe.”
The law requires people who are the victims of an active shooter to use deadly force.
The state’s gun law, which was enacted after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012, also has a “stand-your-ground” provision which permits someone who believes they are being attacked by someone who is armed to use force to defend their life.
Understandably, the NRA has been campaigning hard for the law to be struck down, arguing that it is an infringement on the Second Amendment.
In February, the US Supreme court ruled that the state had no legal right to enact the “stand my ground” provision.
The gun rights’ group has appealed that ruling, saying that Florida has no legal obligation to allow people to carry weapons in public.
A judge agreed with the gun rights organization’s argument and ruled the law violated the Second and Fourteenth Amendments of the US Constitution.
The Florida law is one of two in the country that is facing legal challenges.
The other is a Texas law that gives judges the authority to declare a person’s “domestic violence history” and allow them to be jailed for up to six months.
The law in Florida, however, was upheld by a Florida Supreme Court justice.
The US Supreme in May ruled that a Florida judge’s authority to determine if a person has been convicted of domestic violence violates the US constitution.
The court upheld a ruling by a court of appeals in Texas that found that the law did not violate the right against self-incrimination.
A number of states have introduced laws banning the carrying of guns in public or requiring background checks for firearm purchases.
However, the majority of US states have not enacted laws to prevent guns from being openly carried in public and, according the National Conference of State Legislatures, there are currently no laws on the books that protect the right and ability of citizens in any state to carry guns openly in public without the need for background checks.
In the US, a “reasonable person” could carry a concealed weapon in public if they were not prohibited by state or federal laws.
The ruling in Florida was the latest decision in a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a civil rights organisation, challenging the state law.
A ruling in favor of the gun control groups, which are also challenging other state laws, would likely result in a ruling in the case being overturned.
