The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services reports as of April 30, 2022, Florida now has over 2.5 million permit holders. This number has steadily risen every year and is more than double the number reported in 2012. This comes on the heals of Governor Ron DeSantis announcing last week that he plans to sign Constitutional Carry legislation into law while he is governor. NRA-ILA staunchly supports this effort and has been the leader in the constitutional carry movement across the country.
Twenty-five states now have permitless or “Constitutional Carry” in the United States. Four states, including bordering states Georgia and Alabama, enacted laws this year. Officially, half of the country now recognizes the right of law-abiding adults to carry a concealed firearm without first having to obtain government permission and pay a tax. This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays.
