It is a basic principal of law that the harms that come about due to a criminal attack are the responsibility of the criminal who perpetrated the crime. This is not a new invention of the legislature but a longstanding tenant of law.
There are legislators who are now actively seeking to pass legislation that would punish law abiding citizens who act in necessary defense of themselves, their friends, and their families rather than placing that liability on the criminal should any harm befall a bystander due to an act of self-defense.
We won't stand for it!
“The idea that a person who acts to save a life should be punished along with the criminal is disgusting.” said Sean Caranna, Executive Director of Florida Carry.
We're working hard in the courts and in the legislature to protect your right to protect yourself.
Florida Carry is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots organization dedicated to advancing the fundamental civil right of all Floridians to keep and bear arms for self defense as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article I Section 8 of the Florida Constitution. Florida Carry, Inc. was organized by a group of Florida gun rights activists in order to better coordinate activities, effectively lobby the state legislature, and to provide a legal entity capable of filing suit to demand compliance with state and federal law. Florida Carry stands only to represent our members and the over 6 million gun owners of Florida. We are not beholden to any national organization's agenda that may compromise that mission.
Florida Carry works tirelessly toward repealing and striking down ill-conceived gun control laws that have been proven to provide safe havens to criminals and be deadly to law abiding citizens.
