TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Last year, campus carry was snuffed out in the Florida Senate, but was reignited Wednesday after being heard in both the House and Senate committees.
The legislation would allow concealed carry on campus for any permit holders 21 years of age and older. The bill would apply to all public colleges and universities across the state.
“Most of those people have more training than our law enforcement officers,” said Rep. Steube on CCW permit holders. “I don’t believe that our constitutional right to defend ourselves and others should be stripped … on a college campus.”
We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out in January when the regular session begins.
