Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- On Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at 9:00am the House Criminal Justice Committee will hold a hearing on  HB-163 by Rep. Matt Gaetz

HB-163 is a bill to allow persons with a Concealed Weapons & Firearms License to carry firearms concealed or openly.  It will prevent CW license holders from being charged with the crime of violating the “Open Carry” law because a concealed firearm, being legally carried, accidentally or inadvertently becomes visible to the sight of another person.

ANYTIME YOU CARRY CONCEALED YOU ARE IN DANGER OF BEING CHARGED WITH A CRIME AND PROSECUTED if your gun is accidentally seen by another person.

We need you to contact committee members immediately and urge them to pass this bill.

PLEASE IMMEDIATELY EMAIL Members of the House Criminal Justice Committee and  URGE THEM TO SUPPORT HB-163 by Rep. Matt Gaetz

In the subject line put:  SUPPORT HB-163 — Stop Abuse of License Holders

(Block and Copy All email addresses into the “Send To” box)

It is imperative that you email these Committee members right away.

Hey so is it ok to open carry in Florida if you have a concealed license or are they still working on it?

When was the last time anyone can say they saw a criminal open carrying in a holster?

Most of the time the gun is in their pants.

Open Carry citizens are not the criminals.
