According to a report by the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Florida could potentially become the 22nd constitutional carry state in the country.
Per the Sentinel report, Constitutional Carry is a “priority” for the Republican-controlled state legislature.
Republican State Representative Anthony Sabatini already introduced HB 103, Florida’s Constitutional Carry legislation. This bill would repeal the concealed carry permit requirement that is imposed on otherwise lawful Floridians. In a similar vein, open carry without a permit would also be legalized by Sabatini’s bill.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has publicly stated that he will sign Constitutional Carry legislation into law if it reaches his desk.
Matt Collins, Director of Florida Gun Rights, posted an online video asking DeSantis, “If constitutional carry made your desk, would you sign it?”
DeSantis replied, “Of course.”
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News noted that “there are currently 21 constitutional carry states in the U.S. Those states are Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”
DeSantis has stood out for his staunch opposition to COVID-19 tyranny. He could further cement his status as America’s boldest governor by signing Constitutional Carry into law.
Constitutional Carry is the hottest fight in the Second Amendment movement. When Barack Obama took office in 2009, there were only 2 states with this law. Now in 2021, there are 21 states with Constitutional Carry. As mentioned before, Florida passing this law would bring the number of states with Constitutional Carry to 22.
Should Florida pass Constitutional Carry, all red states in America should have this law on the books.
