SB-290, Firearms/Emergency Evacuation by Senator Jeff Brandes (R-St. Petersburg) is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Rules Committee TOMORROW, Thursday, March 12, 2015, at 9:00AM.

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:  CS/SB-290 Emergency Evacuation
