Politicians are on the ruling class team, not the people. But the people keep falling for these liars.

This is a sad turn of events- wasn't FL the first state to show us how clearly issuing widespread LTC permits significantly reduced overall crime and all but zero'd out crime against women and elderly?

I don't know the date of the video but I did find this:

Challenge to the ballot language
On June 3, 2020, the Florida Supreme Court in a 4-1 ruling determined that the ballot summary was misleading and blocked the measure from appearing on the 2022 ballot.

On July 26, 2019, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody (R) filed a motion with the state supreme court arguing the measure's ballot language is misleading and unclear and that the initiative should be blocked from the ballot. Moody argued that the measure would "ban the possession of virtually every semi-automatic long-gun. To be included on the ballot, the sprawling practical effect of the amendment must be revealed in the ballot language. Because that effect is not revealed, the ballot language is deficient. Moreover, the ballot title and summary do not inform Florida's electorate that virtually every lawful owner of a semi-automatic long-gun will be forced to register with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, or that this registry would be available to all local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. Nor do the ballot title and summary state the time within which preexisting long-gun owners must register their firearms that meet the proposed amendment's definition of ‘assault weapon’ and avail themselves of the amendment's grandfathering provision.”[18]

Gail Schwartz, chair of the Ban Assault Weapons NOW committee, argued, "This bipartisan ballot measure has been vetted extensively by legal experts and is supported by hundreds of thousands of Floridians across the state. We are confident with our chances at the supreme court and presented with the choice to do so, we are confident that the people of Florida will overwhelmingly support this common-sense measure to ban weapons of war to make our communities safer. It’s not surprising that the attorney general is now openly opposing measures to protect families, playing politics with Floridians’ lives in order to appease the gun lobby. Year after year, elected officials like Ashley Moody have done nothing on this issue, as more and more families like my own are forced to reckon with the loss of our loved ones due to military-grade assault weapons."[18]

The NRA and the National Shooting Sports Foundation also filed briefs in the case opposing the measure. On June 3, 2020, the Florida Supreme Court in a 4-1 ruling determined that the ballot summary was misleading. The court said, "While the ballot summary purports to exempt registered assault weapons lawfully possessed prior to the Initiative’s effective date, the Initiative does not categorically exempt the assault weapon, only the current owner’s possession of that assault weapon. The ballot summary is therefore affirmatively misleading." Judge Jorge Labarga dissented arguing that the 75-word limit was not enough to provide every detail of the initiative but that the ballot summary was still clear.[19][20]

Gail Schwartz, the chair of Ban Assault Weapons NOW, released a press release in response to the court's ruling that said, "The Supreme Court, now controlled by the NRA in the same way as our Governor and our Legislature, has fundamentally failed the people of Florida. Not only has the Legislature recently made it harder to pass ballot initiatives, now the people must also face a Court of rightwing ideologues who will only approve initiatives they agree with politically."[20]
