Amicus Brief: Wollschlaeger v. Governor, State of Florida (En Banc)

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America filed this brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit to urge the full court to correct a fundamentally flawed decision by a three-judge panel. The panel upheld a Florida law that prohibits doctors from speaking with their patients about firearm safety. This brief urges the full court to reverse that decision and strike down the law, because it interferes with patients’ right to receive truthful, non-misleading health and safety information from their doctors.

But in almost all cases, these denied and dangerous people walk away scot-free.
