Bill would allow concealed carry in legislative meetings

- Advertisement -

Floridians with concealed carry permits would be able to bring their weapons into legislative meetings under a proposed measure slated to come before the State Legislature during the upcoming session.

Current state law prohibits licensed concealed carry permit holders from carrying their weapons in schools, courthouses, polling places, and at meetings of the legislature.

Filed on Dec. 20 by Rep. Anthony Sabatini, (R-Howey-in-the-Hills), HB6099 would amend the current statute by deleting the portion of the law that prohibits holders of concealed weapons from carrying their firearm during legislative meetings including committee meetings.

If passed, HB6099 would become effective as soon as it is signed into law.
The new legislative session begins on Jan. 11.
