(FOX NEWS) – Florida lawmakers introduced legislation on Monday to allow people to carry a concealed firearm without having to get a government-issued permit – a move that could make the majority of U.S. states permitless-carry territory.

“Our right to bear arms, of course, is enshrined in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,” Republican state Rep. Chuck Brannan said a press conference in Tallahassee. “The bill that I will file later today continues to advance Second Amendment freedoms through legislation known as constitutional carry.

“I believe Floridians have the right to bear arms to protect themselves, their families and their property without government interference,” he added. “This bill is a big step to help the average law-abiding citizen to keep from having to go through the hoops of getting a permit from the government to carry their weapons.”

Brannan introduced HB 543 on Monday alongside Florida House Speaker Paul Renner and a handful of law enforcement officials who lauded the legislation as a step to further protect law-abiding citizens.
