Marion Hammer, former NRA president, talks to John Popp about Palm Beach County Florida's objection to the HB 45 Preemption Penalty Law. The law states that if local governments pass gun control ordinances, then they can be personally punished with fines up to $5,000 that cannot be paid by taxpayer money, and they may be removed from office. Hammer says that these local governments are a creation of the legislature, and they remind her of "disobedient teenagers" who are knowingly breaking the rules but do not want to be punished for it.
