Overview of Pro-Gun Advancements in Florida!

Friday, May 5, 2006

 

HB 129, NRA-backed legislation sponsored by Representative Dennis Baxley (R-24), passed the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, May 4.  The bill protects your right to have a firearm locked in your vehicle for lawful purposes and to park your vehicle in parking lots to conduct normal business.  HB 129 will now be considered by the full House. 

Please contact your State Representative at (850) 488-1157, and respectfully ask for his or her support of HB 129.  

Also this week, several pieces of pro-gun legislation passed by the Florida Legislature. 

HB 285, sponsored by Representative Mitch Needelman (R-31) would prevent the confiscation of firearms that are lawfully possessed, unless a person is engaged in a criminal act during a declared state of emergency. 

HB 265, “No-Net Loss” legislation sponsored by Representative Don Brown (R-05) requires the Florida Wildlife and Conservation Commission to find replacement hunting lands for any public hunting lands that are closed in the future so the number of hunting acres does not fall below the current level. 

SB 1290, sponsored by Senator Mike Fasano (R-11) provides for concealed firearms licenses of U.S. armed services members on active duty will not expire while they are serving on military orders that have taken them away from home. 

HB 1029, sponsored by Representative Dennis Baxley (R-24) allows firearms in state parks/national forests and stipulates that firearms shall at all times be in the possession of a responsible party or properly secured within or to a vehicle or temporary housing, (motor homes, travel trailers, recreational vehicles, campers, tents, or other enclosed structures), while in state parks. 

HB 285, HB 265, SB 1290 and HB 1029 will join HB 125, NRA-backed “Hunter-Voter” legislation sponsored by Representative Greg Evers (R-01), on the desk of Governor Jeb Bush (R).
