When you see something like this, you know the overlords at the City and County level don’t like being told to stop being petty tyrants.
Palm Beach County Tuesday filed a lawsuit challenging the Legislature’s ability to penalize local officials for regulating guns.
That’s the problem right there in a nutshell. Our government is designed to have limited enumerated powers. When a politician steps outside those powers they are not held accountable. Instead money comes from the taxpayer to pay for the grievance. Doesn’t matter if the law maker knew the laws were illegal, they get off free.
Sounds like the people of Palm Beach County need to break out the tar and feathers since the law makers there think being financially liable is a problem.
