Florida: Subcommittee Advances Constitutional Carry

Gun Rights

Yesterday, the Constitutional Rights, Rule of Law & Government Operations Subcommittee voted to advance House Bill 543, the constitutional carry bill. It is now assigned to the Judiciary Committee, which will soon schedule it for a hearing. This puts Florida one step closer to becoming the 26th constitutional carry state. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 543.

House Bill 543 constitutional carry strengthens the right to self-defense in Florida by recognizing the right of any law-abiding adult who is at least 21-years-old and legally eligible to obtain a carry permit, to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without red tape, delays, or fees. It does not change who is eligible to obtain a carry permit. It also does not affect previously issued permits, and allows citizens who still wish to obtain a permit in order to carry in other states recognizing Florida’s permits, to do so.

NRA-ILA will keep you updated as HB 543 is scheduled for a hearing. Again, please contact committee members asking them to SUPPORT HB 543.
