It seems the Coalition to Stop Gun Rights Violence is a little confused about Florida’s Open Carry Law.
790.053 Open carrying of weapons.—
(1) Except as otherwise provided by law and in subsection (2), it is unlawful for any person to openly carry on or about his or her person any firearm or electric weapon or device.
(2) A person may openly carry, for purposes of lawful self-defense:
(a) A self-defense chemical spray.
(b) A nonlethal stun gun or remote stun gun or other nonlethal electric weapon or device which does not fire a dart or projectile and is designed solely for defensive purposes.
(3) Any person violating this section commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
There are very few exceptions mostly for hunting, fishing & participating in shooting sports. Also, ours is a Concealed Weapons Permit which gives us a wide latitude of items that we can carry concealed. So, if the idiot had a CWP and had the machete concealed (good luck with that) he’d be golden. But he probably read the interpretation of Florida’s laws in the GSGV website and now he is wearing an orange romper suit. And if he was openly carrying a “semiautomatic handgun with a 33-round magazine and spares” he’d be also enjoying the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s three meals and a cot lodging facilities.
