250.32 Commanding officer’s control of arms sales.—When any part of the militia of Florida is on state active duty by the order of the Governor to aid in the enforcement of the laws, the commanding officer of such troops may order the closing of any places where arms, ammunition, dynamite, explosives, or intoxicating liquors are sold, and may forbid the selling, bartering, lending, or giving away of any of those commodities in the city, town, or village where the troops are on duty, or in the vicinity of such place, for so long as any of the troops remain on duty in the vicinity. Such orders shall take effect whether any civil officer has issued a similar order; and the commanding officer of the troops may continue to enforce the prohibition until the departure of the troops, although the sheriff, mayor, or intendant of the county, city, town, or village may have prescribed an earlier or different date after which such selling, bartering, lending, or giving away may be carried on.
