Florida lawmakers have proposed a bill that would allow Floridians to conceal and carry firearms without needing a license.
On Monday, House Speaker Paul Renner (R-Palm Coast) announced the introduction of House Bill 543 which would make it legal for residents 21 and older to carry concealed weapons without having to apply for a permit from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The National Rifle Association praised the proposed legislation, saying that if passed, Florida would join more than half of U.S. states in allowing citizens their “fundamental right” to bear arms without government permission slips or restrictions.
Governor Ron DeSantis has expressed his commitment to passing this bill into law and thanked him for his leadership on removing permitting requirements.
If approved by both houses of legislature, Florida will become the 26th state in America with Constitutional Carry laws protecting gun owners’ rights under the Second Amendment.
