Permitless carry comes to Florida

 John Richardson at No Lawyers - Only Guns and Money reports that Florida has become the 26th state to enact permitless carry. Governor Ron DeSantis signed the bill today, to be effective July 1.

I reported about this time last year that Florida's bill was DOA. But Florida Carry and others continued the fight, and got it passed this year.

This new law still limits carry to concealed only, and not open carry.

Here are some predictions-

Blood will not run in the streets.

Bad guys will still carry, like they always did, without permits.

Good guys will still mostly exercise sound judgement in use of their defensive handguns.

Although I would have liked to have seen open carry included in the statute, it is a step in the right direction. Now Florida needs to rescind their purchase ban for young adults 18-20 years of age, a clearly unconstitutional ban.

Today the pits--
