Gainesville Joins Florida Cities Suing the State Over Gun Law

Gainesville city commissioners have voted unanimously to join a lawsuit against a Florida law that punishes any elected official that tries to pass certain regulations on firearms.

These punishments include personal fines and removal from office. Several other local governments in Florida are also challenging the law.
