Florida’s First Use Of New Gun Laws Is Frightening

A Broward County Judge issued the first seizure of guns under Florida’s new gun laws. Officers took the 4 guns and 267 rounds of ammunition without due process. The order also had the owner committed for a mental evaluation.

This came after the man was deemed a threat to himself and others despite officers saying their interactions with the man in the past didn’t warrant the removal of his guns.

Lighthouse Point Police Chief Ross Licata said officers have had interactions with the man over a number of years but none of them had risen to the level that would have warranted removing the man’s access to guns. There was also no legal method to do so in the past.

“I think this is what the general public has been looking for — for law enforcement to be able to intervene in these kinds of situations — for a long time,” the chief said.

He said he wished he had such legislation a couple of years ago when another city resident was involuntarily committed for psychiatric help after a domestic incident and police took his guns for safekeeping. A very short time after the man was released from hospital, he demanded the return of his firearms…
