Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has recently chosen to sign a bill into law which is going to let Floridians have the power to conceal carry firearms without the need to obtain a permit.
The signage of this new law marks a point in the second amendment rights battle where the majority of the U.S. states now have Constitutional carry laws set up, according to a statement from the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA).
“The NRA applauds Florida for becoming the 26th state to adopt the vital Constitutional Carry legislation,” expressed Randy Kozuch, the NRA-ILA Interim Executive Director, to Fox News. “This NRA-spearheaded initiative empowers Floridians to exercise their Second Amendment rights without undue bureaucratic barriers, affirming the fundamental right to self-defense.”
“We thank Gov. DeSantis for his support of self-defense and Second Amendment laws and for prioritizing the safety and security of Florida residents,” Kozuch went on, later adding: “We extend our gratitude to the Florida legislature and all those who have worked tirelessly to make this a reality in the Sunshine State.”
The law lets all eligible citizens who are at least 21 years old to carry a weapon without the need to secure a permit or pay a fee, explained Fox News.
The bill received overwhelming support in the Florida legislature — 76-32 vote within the House and a 27-13 vote within the Senate — all due to strong supermajorities held by Republicans throughout both chambers.
