Florida House To Consider “Courthouse Carry” Measure

The rule that prohibits firearms in Florida courthouses could be altered to make life easier for gun owners. A new bill has been introduced in the state House, allowing concealed-carry permit holders to store guns with security officers. 

HB 383 was proposed by Rep. Cord Byrd, R-Neptune Beach. WUSF reports that it is identical to SB 134, a bill filed in the state Senate in August.

This measure will be considered in the 2018 legislative session, which begins in January. A similar bill was approved by the Senate last year but was not taken up by the House.
