    New here! Governer signs Open Carry Bill SB 234

    Hello!

    New here, but not new to our issue. I have been in touch with Florida's Governors office and received this E-Mail back on June 17. Not sure why no one else has picked up om it:


    Thank you for contacting Governor Rick Scott regarding legislation passed by the Florida Legislature during the 2011 regular session. The Governor appreciates your thoughts and asked that I respond on his behalf.

    The Executive Office of the Governor follows all bills as they move through the legislative process. Please be assured, Governor Scott carefully considered your comments and those of other concerned citizens regarding Senate Bill 234 relating to Firearms as he made his decision.

    After consulting with all interested parties and thoroughly weighing all sides of this issue, Governor Scott signed Senate Bill 234 into law on June 17. Information about the Governor's Bill Actions can be found on the Governor's web site at Florida Governor Rick Scott - Bill Action

    Thank you again for taking the time to contact the Governor's Office. Your input is important to him. Information about the Governor's administration and initiatives can be obtained online at Florida Governor Rick Scott - The Office of the 45th Governor of Florida.

    Sincerely,
    Kira R. Frye

    I bet Dr Phil would have a hernia if he knew his Uncle was on a Defensive Carry gun board

    This is not an Open Carry law. OC is still illegal in Florida.

    It only allowed for brief exposure of the weapon. "Brief" was not defined but is considered by most to mean something like when reaching for something on a high shelf or when the wind blows open your cover shirt.
