Florida Carry Public Meeting & Open Carry Fishing Events Coming to a Pier Near You
Come join us for our Statewide Meetings to raise awareness of Handgun Carry Rights in Florida.
Saturday 10AM – 12PM
Florida - -(Ammoland.com)- On the second Saturday of each month, Florida Carry holds local meetings for our members and other second amendment advocates throughout the state.
These meetings are informal and hosted by local volunteers who work with local officials to insure that they are pleasant events for everyone. The public is invited!
Many participants Open Carry and fish during these events. Other participants carry concealed and may or may not fish at the meetings. These monthly events are a great way for local second amendment advocates to network, keep up-to-date on current legislation & litigation, and make new friends.
The newest location for these meeting is in the Miami Area at Miami-Dade’s Black Point Marina Park. We will enjoy a morning of Fishing and answer any questions about Florida Carry, the lawsuits pending or in progress, current legislation, and our other efforts to support Florida gun owners.
Florida Carry has identified and worked with over 300 cities, counties, and state agencies to remove unlawful gun control ordinances and signs. The vast majority of those jurisdictions have subsequently repealed their ordinances and pulled down their anti-gun signs. We are pleased to report that we have suspend filing lawsuits against Miami and Miami-Dade pending the planned repeal of their dangerous gun control ordinances this month. These kinds of laws have proven to only protect criminals while leaving the law abiding defenseless and we will be happy to see them gone.
Currently, Florida Carry’s “Second Amendment Saturday” events are held simultaneously in:
