Florida Campus Carry: Down, But Not Out

posted on April 2, 2015

Florida’s campus carry bill, which would allow licensed, trained adults to carry firearms on college campuses just as they do elsewhere in the state, has hit a snag. On Monday, the Senate committee where SB 180 was assigned adjourned without taking action on the bill. Meanwhile, an identical measure—HB 19, sponsored by Rep. Greg Steube—will be heard today in the House Judiciary Committee.

Supporters of Florida campus carry caution that it is too early to let the initial setback in the Senate dampen hopes. “This is the legislative process. And we’re only in the fifth week,” former NRA President Marion Hammer, who leads the charge for pro-gun issues in the state, told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. “It’s not over till it’s over.”
