Last week a state of emergency was declared in Florida due to Hurricane Erika. Fortunately we were unaffected by the storm. Did you know that during a state of emergency effects the sales of guns and ammo? I've attached the statute - it's good to be informed and stock up on what you need ahead of time!

Wow! I guess we're lucky that a hurricane related state of emergency by the Governor is not issued under 870.043

Whenever the sheriff or designated city official determines that there has been an act of violence or a flagrant and substantial defiance of, or resistance to, a lawful exercise of public authority and that, on account thereof, there is reason to believe that there exists a clear and present danger of a riot or other general public disorder, widespread disobedience of the law, and substantial injury to persons or to property, all of which constitute an imminent threat to public peace or order and to the general welfare of the jurisdiction affected or a part or parts thereof, he or she may declare that a state of emergency exists within that jurisdiction or any part or parts thereof.

Are there really two threads on this? I've seen some weird behavior of the FCC site on certain platforms before but never two virtually identical threads. Is it me or did the OP really start two? :dunno

Wrong. Read the title of the chapter. When the Governor declares a state of emergency for flooding or a hurricane, it is under the authority of FS 252.36 not 870.044. That is for civil unrest, not natural disasters.

Mods, I think one of these needs to get closed. Looks like someone combined them but left them both open.
