It seems the Hillborough County Commission, which covers the Tampa area, decided to ask their County Attorney about implementing a local assault weapon and high capacity magazine ban.
Many localities around the nation are looking into and trying to implement such measures.
The County Attorney came back with an answer the Commission was not expecting.
Not only is the County unable to legally pass such measures, but if the Commissioners did, anyone voting for the measure could face financial penalties.
We may have the dumbest criminals, but we have some damn good laws here. Now if we can just get defensive display passed.
