The Broward Sheriff’s Office is taking part in an operation aimed at convicted felons who may in possession of firearms.
"Operation Bullseye" has so far resulted in the confiscation of 31 guns and the arrests of 31 convicted felons allegedly in possession of those guns.
Under both Florida law and federal law, it is illegal for a person convicted (adjudicated) of a felony to own or be in possession of a firearm. You can be convicted of any felony offense and still have your right to own or possess a firearm taken away.
