On Tuesday, HB273 was filed in the Florida legislature which would enact permitless concealed carry. The press (and sponsor, Rep Anthony Sabatini) are calling it Constitutional Carry; but it doesn't include open carry as far as I can tell. Even so, this would be a great addition to FL law because it gets 3/4 of the way there for a future full Constitutional Carry which includes open carry--easy to modify it later with a small tweak. Florida residents should strongly support the Bill--3/4 of the cake now is far better than no cake.

Even though there is a Republican majority in both chambers and a Republican Governor, it may be a challenge to pass it because of weak-sister RINO R's.
The Sunshine State could be the 17th to adopt a version of permitless, or constitutional, carry if a new bill filed on Tuesday is successful.

The measure would drop the requirement that those carrying a concealed firearm in Florida first get a Concealed Weapon License from the state. While over 2 million such CWLs are in current circulation, Florida is one of the few states that do not allow any form of unlicensed carry with a narrow exception of those involved in hunting, fishing or a short-term emergency evacuation such as in a hurricane.

“Today I filed HB 273, which deletes the requirement that a person obtain a permission slip from government before concealing a weapon for their self-defense—also known as ‘Constitutional Carry,” said the bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Anthony Sabatini, R-Clermont. “Our Second Amendment Right should not be determined by a government bureaucracy. All Americans have the right to protect themselves.”
You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time...and those are pretty good odds.
