    Gotta love Florida! One less category of prohibited places...

    A bill supported by the National Rifle Association and Unified Sportsmen of Florida to allow possession of firearms for self-defense and other lawful purposes while in National Forests and State Parks in Florida passed the Florida Legislature today and is on its way to Governor Jeb Bush (R) for his signature.

    HB-1029 Sponsored by Representative Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala) in the House and Senator Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) in the Senate does the following:

    1. Repeals the law that bans firearms in National Forests in Florida (s. 790.11, 790.12, 790.14)

    2. Directs the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to repeal its rule that bans firearms in State Parks (rule 62D-2.014(10).

    3. Requires that all other applicable firearms laws be followed.

    4. Requires that a new rule be formulated by DEP that allows firearms in state parks and stipulates that firearms shall at all times be in the possession of a responsible party or properly secured within or to a vehicle or temporary housing, which shall include motor homes, travel trailers, recreational vehicles, campers, tents, or other enclosed structures, while in state parks.

    The bill passed the House 90-27 and passed the Senate 31-6
    So scratch State Parks and National Forests from the list of places Florida CFWP holders must disarm (once the Governor signs it).

    I love the Gunshine State.

    You members from the great state of Florida should be greatful to have a state government that allows you your constitutional RTBA, and now the right to carry in national parks. Hopefully one day we'll also have the option to carry concealed here in Wisconsin.
    The power of the future is in its ability to inspire the present.

    I needed some good news after the last week. I hope the Gov. signs it soon! This state has it's own set of problems but at least in this area we seem to be making progress...

    That's great news! Florida always seems to be the testing ground for gun rights so let's hope other CCW states continue to follow their lead! Absolutely NO reason we should be restricted from carrying when in these remote locations. Heck, that's where we'd most likely run into trouble: Rabid animals, snakes and hillbilly meth labs to name a few!

    Lucky? Luck had nothing to do with it. We fought hard to get the right people elected to office in our state and continue the fight to keep the good ones there, and oust the rest.

    I do NOT sit out an election. Even if the choice is limited to "bad" and "worse."

    No vote = no right to complain.

    I too hope as seems the case - that where FL leads, others can and will follow.

    Another small plus for us even if not FL residents.

    I certainly wish TN would follow that example. Besides two legged predators (a couple years ago there was a rash of rapes in a park around here), there was the recent incident of a bear killing a little girl.

    As a proud Floridian, I am supremely proud of and benefit by our state's stance on firearms. Many thanx to everyone involved in accomplishing it.
