SB 296
is apparently stalled. As I posted before, it allows for people even without a Concealed Weapons Permit to carry a gun during an evacuation during a State Of Emergency.


Again, fits are being thrown like Mardi gars necklaces in New Orleans and sulfuric editorial are being written all across the Gunshine State. Will the bill be killed? No idea. maybe, maybe not. Although is good to throw a bone to the opposition sometimes, it also encourages them to come back for more and then you have to roll the newspaper.


At any rate, if this bill gets stuck, it really does not matter much if the people inside the car are smart and follow the law as it stand now:
POSSESSION IN PRIVATE CONVEYANCE.—Notwithstanding subsection (2), it is lawful and is not a violation of s. 790.01 for a person 18 years of age or older to possess a concealed firearm or other weapon for self-defense or other lawful purpose within the interior of a private conveyance, without a license, if the firearm or other weapon is securely encased or is otherwise not readily accessible for immediate use. Nothing herein contained prohibits the carrying of a legal firearm other than a handgun anywhere in a private conveyance when such firearm is being carried for a lawful use. Nothing herein contained shall be construed to authorize the carrying of a concealed firearm or other weapon on the person. This subsection shall be liberally construed in favor of the lawful use, ownership, and possession of firearms and other weapons, including lawful self-defense as provided



Securely encased” means in a glove compartment, whether or not locked; snapped in a holster; in a gun case, whether or not locked; in a zippered gun case; or in a closed box or container which requires a lid or cover to be opened for access.
So, do we really need this law? Yes if only to tweak the opposition’s nose.


Those are my two cents and I am sticking to them…or something like that.

Why would you NOT be able to carry your weapon, just because you are evacuating??? IT's a personal belonging, that you are securing, so as not to get into the wrong hands, by leaving it, or them behind.

Because these self important peacock legislators believe that more laws are the answer to everything. Write a law - leave your mark on history. That's the way they see it.

WTF? Is you going to do what is needed or is you not?
Me? I will take care of business in the most docile way possible and I'll live to sort out the details later.

This was stalled because the Chief Lawyer of the FL Nat Guard gave testimony at the hearing that the FL Nat Guard did not want this to pass even though the Governor is behind it. It does not matter, under current law, you can still open carry if you are on you way going fishing, or going hunting, or a couple of other activities.....

But it does bring up a good point and that is that those in power during a crisis do not want citizens able to defend themselves......
