On Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at 9:00am the House Criminal Justice Committee will hold a hearing on HB-163 by Rep. Matt Gaetz
HB-163 is a bill to allow persons with a Concealed Weapons & Firearms License to carry firearms concealed or openly. It will prevent CW license holders from being charged with the crime of violating the "Open Carry" law because a concealed firearm, being legally carried, accidentally or inadvertently becomes visible to the sight of another person.
ANYTIME YOU CARRY CONCEALED YOU ARE IN DANGER OF BEING CHARGED WITH A CRIME AND PROSECUTED if your gun is accidentally seen by another person.
We need you to contact committee members immediately and urge them to pass this bill.
