Two weeks ago Florida filed bill HB 273 which allows for constitutional carry in Florida. The bill allows for residents to carry concealed weapons without the need of a CCW permit.
The new bill would allow anyone over the age of 18 to carry a firearm without a license and reduce the penalties for carrying a firearm in restricted areas. Areas such as colleges, courthouses, and legislative meetings. Carrying a concealed firearm in those restricted areas would be a third-degree felony. The new HB 273 bill would reduce that charge to a second degree misdemeanor.
The bill was backed by Representative Anthony Sabatini who is a pro-second amendment supporter. In a tweet announcing the bill he wrote, “Our Second Amendment right should not be determined by a government bureaucracy.”
This is bill is an important one for Florida gun owners. Two months ago Florida lawmakers add an constitutional amendment up for a vote in the 2020 primary election. The amendment would ban any semiautomatic rifle or shotgun CAPABLE of holding more than ten (10) rounds of ammunition at once, either in a fixed or detachable magazine or other ammunition feeding device. If that amendment is voted into law would essential ban all firearms within Florida. While calling for a gun registry of firearms already circulating in Florida.
This constitutional carry bill filed by Rep. Sabatini let’s Florida residents know that someone is still fighting for their constitutional right to bear arms freely and safely.
Do you believe constitutional carry should be allowed in all states? Let me know in the comments below.
