Florida: Urgent! Two (2) Pro-Gun Bills Up in Committee Monday 2/16/15

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

DATE:   February 11, 2015
TO:          USF & NRA Member and Friends
FROM:  Marion P. Hammer
                 USF Executive Director
                 NRA Past President


THE FIRST BILL: SB-290, Firearms/Emergency Evacuation by Senator Jeff Brandes (R-St. Petersburg) is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Criminal Justice Committee on Monday, February 16, 2015, at 4:00pm.

SB-290 is a bill to protect citizens from being disarmed and charged with a crime for carrying a weapon or firearm during a mandatory evacuation ordered by the Governor or local government during a declared state of emergency. 

WHY DO WE NEED SB-290?

When you're ordered under a mandatory evacuation to take your family, pets and important documents and leave your home and other belongings behind, you should not be deprived of the ability to protect yourself and your family.  You should not be denied the right to take your firearms with you rather than leave them behind for looters.  This bill is especially important for law-abiding people in a state that is prone to evacuations due to hurricanes. This bill is about your safety and the safety of your family.  Read the bill here:  SB-290 Emergency Evacuation

THE SECOND BILL: SB-176 Campus Carry by CW License Holders by Senator Greg Evers (R-Baker) is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Criminal Justice Committee on Monday, February 16, 2015, at 4:00pm

SB-176 is a bill to allow adults over 21 years of age who have a Concealed Weapon or Firearm License to carry their firearms with them on campus.  Currently, college and university campuses are "gun free zones" where criminals can attack students, administrators, faculty members and guests on campus without fear of being harmed by their victims. Read the bill here:  SB-176 Campus Carry by CW License Holders

WHY DO WE NEED SB-176?

You should not be forced to give up your right to protect yourself simply because you cross an invisible line from the real world to a "gun free zone" called a "campus."  Crossing an invisible line onto a campus where no one is available to protect you is not just cause for being forced to be a victim if attacked.
