In a great victory for Florida’s law-abiding gun owners, the Florida Supreme Court agreed with our contention that the ballot summary was deceptive and would mislead voters. 

The ballot initiative contained deceptive language to fool Florida voters in an attempt to ban millions of legal, commonly used firearms and shut down legitimate businesses all around Florida. 

Supporters of the gun ban initiative used deceptive language to try to trick voters into supporting their gun ban claiming it would do one thing while knowing it would do much more.
