Criminals oppose consequences for their crimes

Since 1987, Florida law has barred local governments from imposing their own gun-control laws, but local officials have openly flouted that law. After 24 years, those officials will now face consequences if they continue their illegal actions. This makes them very unhappy:

Gallegos wrote that threatening local officials with $5,000 fines “speaks to a degree of intimidation seemingly unprecedented.”

Oh? It’s unprecedented to sanction people for illegal actions? Heck, for 24 years people like Gallegos have been sanctioning people for legal actions!
