Florida, USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Everyone is asking: What happened with the passage of Constitutional Carry law in the state of Florida?
The simple answer is Florida politicians dropped the ball for the 3rd year in a row…. failing… once again to pass Constitutional Carry.
Even after Governor Ron DeSantis publicly state he would sign a Constitutional carry bill into law if it made it to his desk this year!
So who is to blame? Turns out it is both parties. Democrats…. well we all know where they stand on gun rights, but most of the blame this year belongs to team GOP.
Wilton Simpson the Senate President, and a Republican, can take most of the blame as he has the most power to move bills, … but remember just a few years ago, he also wrote the Parkland Gun Control Bill?
Others like State Representative Michele Salzman were caught on video saying, and I’m paraphrasing… “that even though she supports constitutional carry, this isn’t the time” not the time wait..what?
If not now then when? 22 states are now on board with Constitutional Carry.
To his credit, Republican Anthony Sabatini of Florida’s 32nd district tried his best to get this passed. He has introduced a Constitutional Carry bill again this year …and for the 3rd time.
You would think, after trying to get Constitutional Carry for Florida residents 2 years in a row, Sabatini’s bill would surely be a slam dunk the 3rd time around, especially in a Legislature with a Republican majority!
