    Below is a link to a youtube video of some of the Testimony before the Florida House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, March 17, 2014. It shows the Florida Sheriffs Association OPEN OPPOSITION to your right to carry your firearms with you during a mandatory evacuation under a declared state of emergency.

    Further, despite words of the Founding Fathers in the Second Amendment, it is their opinion that you only have a "right" to own firearms and not a "right" to bear firearms.

    Most states disarm citizens during a "state of emergency" with the excuse being it helps prevent looting. Also, citizens moving around while National Guardsmen patrol is thought to be too dangerous of a situation. Not quite sure how this differs from moving around every day amongst police and civilians, but the state somehow sees a difference.

    During Katrina, many weapons were removed from citizens legally carrying and even taken from their homes. Last I heard, less than 15% had been returned.

    Sheriffs are elected officials. That makes them POLITICIANS. They cease being law enforcers and become politicians. Sheriffs are slightly more conservative than chiefs of police.

    I don't think they want a fight... It's just that their heads are so far up their collective derrières that they mistakenly believe that a war with civilians is A. Impossible and B. Something they could handle.

    Personally... I hope they never "need" to receive an "object lesson" on the topic.

    The last I heard, it was passed. Maybe I heard wrong. The Sheriffs A$$-ociation is just whining.

    That law is at the Federal level, it does NOT forbid state law enforcement from taking your weapons.

    It has only made it out of Committee. Week/months before it actually passes or fails the Legislators and then the Governor.

    I would have swore that I read an NRA-ILA message about this being passed. Oh well, I will get a follow up message eventually. ;)

    So true, so true. Can't argue with the facts. The majority of liberal politicians want draconian firearm restrictions, the majority of conservative politicians are very pro gun. JMO.

    Neither side respects constitutional protection. So called conservative politicians will remain pro gun for as long as being pro gun benefits them politically.

    I think the point here is also we can not blame the Sheriff's Association as a whole. There are many sheriff's in the association throughout the US who as a group and individually have advised they personally and their agency would not enforce any confiscation of weapons according to the Second Amendment. Including instruction from a tyrannical government! I agree with all here regarding taking your weapon during a disaster and support it 100%. Carrying it concealed while doing so might be another issue since many travel to other states during these times. Some of those states do not honor anyone carrying concealed without a license from their home state and maybe the state does not honor Florida's personal protection permit initially. So that would be a consideration when traveling outside of Florida.

    It's very easy to get a permit here if you qualify, but it is not quick, and it is not cheap. In theory hurricane season could be over before you ever see your permit even though the law calls for 90 days or less. If it is going to go longer than 90 days they have to notify you of the cause of the delay. We're too busy seems to be an acceptable reason to them.
