Being a Florida resident I may have a little more insight into this. The open carry being discussed is only for CCW holders. It is not "general" open carry. The main reason this bill was introduced was to cover a flaw in Florida's concealed carry law. If a CCW holders weapon is exposed intentional or not he can be charged with "Brandishing" which is a felony. It would be a "bad Wrap" to be charged with a felony because a gust of wind blew a shirt or jacket open!!! Or God forbid if I bend over to pick up a can of peas off the bottom shelf in the supermarket and my shirt raises up enough to expose my "friend". I agree, I DO NOT want anyone to know I am carrying, but I also don't want a felony conviction over something stupid.
