Gun Owners Win Adoption Battle

April 14th, 2010 by flanews

Adoption agencies in Florida can no longer ask prospective parents if they own a gun. Governor Charlie Crist signed a bill today that removes gun and ammunition questions from the adoption process and says gun ownership cannot be a factor in placing a child. Former NRA president Marion Hammer applauded the governor for signing the legislation.

Hes always been there for gun owners and Im very happy that youre signing this bill as well as the other one, said Hammer.

One concern the law addressed is that some adoption agencies were making their own registries of gun owners, which is illegal. The new law will prevent that from happening. Last week Crist signed legislation barring further raids on the conceal carry weapons trust fund.
