We have SB 176 Campus Carry that eliminates the prohibition of anybody with a concealed weapons permit to enter any college or university. I expect the usual shrieks coming out of Intelligentsia about the “chilling effect on Academic Free Speech” which is funny because if you dare to disagree with your professor or dare not to toe the Liberal mind of campus, you may be subjected to all kinds of penalties. Hell, you may even end up in a book as a rapist.
And next we have SB290 permit-less carrying of a concealed weapon during evacuating during a mandatory evacuation order issued during a state of emergency declared by the Governor pursuant to or declared by a local authority. Expect opposition from Sheriffs and other heads of LEOs on this one. I have one issue with this bill and it is that once the mandatory evacuation order is rescinded, those without CWP must understand that they are no longer covered by it and can face legal problems if they are still carrying without a permit. It this bill passes, we need to drum in everybody’s head this particular quirk of the law.
Nothing yet on Open carry and I did not see any Anti Gun bill on the list. I’ll keep an eye whenever I remember. In the meantime, if you are not a member of Florida Carry, it is time you do so. And if you are, are you? Have you renewed? Go check and make sure.
