Gun Safety

The League of Women Voters – Florida has an adopted consensus that is expected to need member action regarding introduced legislation in Florida: one bill would permit students to have a concealed weapon permit to carry guns on campuses. LWVFL opposed this bill. Another bill would require that guns located in homes must be locked away if there is a youth under 16 in the home.

We can expect the Florida League to be requesting action on the already introduced legislation to allow guns on college campuses. In addition, the state committee is planning to propose a 2018 amendment to the state constitution regarding background checks of those purchasing guns. We are expecting a power point presentation on gun safety to be available shortly. We have already planned to have this presentation at one of our upcoming Hot Topic luncheons.
