The Florida League’s 2017 Legislative priorities re Gun Safety are:

  • Support proposals that would expand background checks in Florida, thereby closing the gun show and Internet loopholes.
  • Support proposals that would impose a statewide ban on semi-automatic assault weapons and large capacity magazines.
  • Oppose any proposals that would make it legal for those with concealed weapons permits to carry firearms on Florida’s public college and university campuses.
  • Oppose any proposals that would make it legal for those with concealed weapons permits to carry openly firearms in public places.
  • Oppose any proposals that would permit Floridians to carry concealed weapons without a permit.
  • Oppose any proposals that would expand the current “Stand Your Ground” law.
  • Oppose any proposals that would permit Florida School Boards or School Superintendents to designate employees or others to carry concealed firearms, for security purposes, on school grounds at K-12 schools.
