Imposing stiff penalties on city and county officials who approve gun regulations that go beyond state firearms laws came under scrutiny, as an appeals court considers a lower-court ruling in lawsuits filed after the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County.

(Pay wall. Screw 'em.)

"[L]ocal governments are entitled to 'absolute legislative immunity' when acting in their official capacity."

Delusions of grandeur.

And absolute nonsense. When local governments disobey state law under color of authority, they have committed an offense. The state government classifies it as such, and the 2011 amendment to that prohibition creates penalties for violations. Both the core law and its amended form are within the state's powers and subdivisions of the state serve at the pleasure of the state, not the other way around.

This behavior is typical of 'progressives,' and they cannot be permitted to get away with it.
