That is absolutely freaking ridiculous! I am an old man and have to take a hand full of pills every morning, three of which function like diuretics meaning I pee a lot all morning long. So I get up and take my pills, put on my EDC and then it the road for . . . where ever . . . and I have to KNOW the different gun laws at every different exit I take to find a restroom? How the heck does anyone in their right mind think that is a good thing?

I'm honestly surprised West Palm hasn't joined in.

Tallahassee, Orlando, Gainesville, St. Petersburg and Maitland are now part of the deal. Combined with the recent Orange County private sale ordinance, I'd say the problem is no longer confined to down here.

Broward County also has sued the state, questioning the constitutionality of the penalties that discourage local officials from passing the type of measures they believe are within their rights.
They can "believe" all they want; the statutes are quite clear.

The libtards couldn't win in court or the legislature, so they think they can fight against guns by a snowstorm of chicken-s';t to make it impossible for legitimate gun owners. The cities and counties figure they can make something illegal and station LEOs around the perimeter to play got'cha. I recall about 15 years ago, maybe a bit more, it was either Charlotte or Sarasota county which dropped the speed limit on I-75 at their county line, and they had a gauntlet of police to catch the "speeders" (probably for the children). Eventually, they got to the wrong person, who had money to spend and sued. Turned out the change in limit had never been approved and they had to restore it to normal.

Of course, as with lots of laws, the legal finding would be different if it were about guns.

Removal from office and fines are the punishment for writing laws contrary to the state pre-emption Law.
Wouldn't Pam Bondi's office be the prosecution?

“The intent of the penalities — which are unprecedented — is to chill local officials for taking any measures, even reasonable ... measures,” Cole said. “By having these onerous penalties, cities [are] scared to do anything.”
That’s exactly the point!
No different than the federal government complaining the Constitution limits the powers of the federal government.
