Florida Campus Carry Bill To Return In 2016

posted on August 12, 2015

The Florida state legislature will once again consider a bill to allow approved students to carry concealed firearms on college grounds. Rep. Greg Steube filed the bill, which is scheduled for the 2016 session. A similar bill was debated last session but ultimately stalled.

While opponents of campus carry have been quick to speculate about its consequences, the record of how implementation looks across the country is increasingly clear. According to NRA lobbyist and past president Marion Hammer, “Those opponents who don’t have the facts on their side resort to that kind of emotional debate. They cannot document that that is a problem in any of the nine states that currently allow guns on campus.”
