Opinion: It’s unfortunate when you have Crooks In Local Government Like Mayor John Marks That Support Crooked And Unconstitutional Gangs Like “Mayor’s Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG) That Doesn’t Protect Law-abiding Citizens And Only Keeps Gang Members With Guns On The Streets And Not In The Hands Of Citizens For Self-Defense.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is joining with 21 other states that support a National Rifle Association effort to overturn a federal gun law.
Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange late last week filed a brief supporting the NRA’s attempt to have a federal court strike down a law that restricts handguns to people under the age of 21. Florida and 20 other states co-signed the brief.
The lawsuit— which is now before the U.S. Supreme Court — seeks to end a federal prohibition on the sale of handguns by federally licensed dealers to people aged 18 through 20.
Strange maintains that many states already allow young adults to purchase guns legally.
A federal appeals court upheld the law in October 2012.
