A bill has been introduced in the Florida Legislature which will finally recognize Constitutional Carry as the law of the land. And predictably, the Anti Gun cadre is opposed and the hysterics are monumental, especially because Governor DeSantis had already promised to sign the bill into law even before one existed.
But what is really taking the cake is the hypocrisy of Moms Demand:
Permitless carry is dangerous and goes against the will of law enforcement, Florida voters, and public safety experts who know this bill will only exacerbate gun violence and make it easier for dangerous people to carry a gun in our communities…
Permitless carry also takes away a vital tool from law enforcement to ensure a person carrying a gun in public isn’t a criminal with a dangerous history. Law enforcement across the country, including in Ohio, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, Louisiana, and South Carolina have been vocal opponents to permitless carry legislation.
The funny part is that Ohio, Texas and Alabama are already Constitutional Carry states. And how about the gall that after all the years opposing Concealed Carry of any flavor, it is suddenly “a vital tool” for law enforcement?
Florida’s current permitting system is effective. Without requiring too much time or money, our permitting system ensures those carrying guns in public have gone through a background check and taken firearm training.
If you read the above without knowing how they behaved in the past, you’d swear they always favored Concealed Carry Permits and they would never said a word against them.
Concealed carry permitting systems enjoy overwhelming support nationally. The majority of Americans support concealed carry permitting systems that help ensure that only responsible gun owners can carry concealed guns in public.
Really, you lying sacks of excrement? So why you always threw a hissy fit of gargantuan proportions and flatly rejected National Reciprocity of Carrying Concealed any time any of us offered it? Now you believe permitted carrying is a wonderful thing which everybody favors?
Go Home Moms Demand. You are drunk on cheap boxed wine and Xanax. Your time has long expired.

Update: It figures. The biggest enemies of any Gun Rights advancement in Florida in the past decade had to come up and do their thing: Chest Tumpers attack!
