Florida Carry

HB 517SB 234 - Carry Licensee Rights Reform: Licensed Open Carry, Campus Carry, Vehicle Storage of Firearms, Long Gun Purchase Out of State, and Dept. of Ag. Fingerprint Services.  

This NRA authored bill was a step in the right direction for some Florida right to carry issues but ultimately fell short of making meaningful advances for Carry Rights.
 
Campus Carry was removed from the bill in the first Senate committee stop.

Open Carry was gutted from the bill on the Senate Floor in a clear end-run around the legislative process.  The Leadership of the Florida House refused to let the bill come to a vote with the Open Carry provision despite overwhelming support from house members.

  • Partial Victory. Open Carry and Campus Carry Failed.

 


HB 45SB 402Firearms Preemption Enforceability: Provides penalties for government officials who knowingly & willfully violate Florida's Firearms Preemption Statute.

Florida Carry Co-executive Director Richard Nascak worked tirelessly throughout 2010 to bring the abused preemption issue to light and was a genesis for HB45.
