Florida Open Carry - Final Push

Tomorrow - Wednesday, the Florida Senate will vote on SB 234. This bill includes open carry, vehicle carry, DOACS fingerprint authorization, and long gun/shotgun contiguous state purchase authorization.

Of course, the most contentious element is open carry. This is going to be a squeaker, folks. Senate Bill 234 deserves your support as do the 801,219 active concealed carry licensees who have patiently waited for this bill for over 23 years. Although most Senators should have already made up their minds. Nonetheless, consider one last push to deliver this bill for the public.

Suggest you and friends voice you support for SB 234. Take a moment and fire up your e-mail clients list one more time. Feel free to use the suggested e-mail  below. We're almost there, and we just need a final push to get this bill to the Governor's desk for his promised signature.

SUBJECT: Vote for Open Carry in SB 234

Dear Senator,

Senate Bill 234 deserves your support, as do the 801,219 active concealed carry licensees who have patiently waited for this bill for over 23 years. Governor Scott has already stated he will sign the bill as a 2nd Amendment supporter and open carry advocate. Florida is one of only seven states that do not permit some form of general open carry. The objections raised by law enforcement and retail associations make no mention that the practice of open carry is successful in 43 states, nor do they acknowledge their dire predictions are the same "blood in the streets" arguments of almost a quarter-century ago. Those predictions have been proven unfounded.

Please help support the law abiding carriers of Florida and vote in favor of SB 234.

Respectfully yours,
