    Campus carry bill has been amended to allow licensed OC?

    According to a member of another forum the campus carry bill was changed to allow licensed OC. I assume he's speaking about the part in bold. Is he reading this right?


    bill to be entitled
    An act relating to licenses to carry concealed weapons
    or firearms; amending s. 790.06, F.S.; deleting a
    provision prohibiting concealed carry licensees from
    openly carrying a handgun
    or carrying a concealed
    weapon or firearm into a college or university
    facility; providing an effective date.

    No, he's reading it very wrongly.

    Campus carry will be concealed carry by permit only, subject to probable neocon pussyfoot liberal amendments barring CC in classrooms. This will make it useless but hey, it looks pro gun on paper. Watch what happens in its Senate stops. I'd say the bill as currently written has about a 50% chance.

    General OC, or open carry anywhere besides the exceptions in 790.25 will be illegal for many years. If OC does ever become legal, they'll be sure to make sure you have to carry concealed in the food courts, parking lots, and courtyards of university campuses (where CC will be uselessly allowed).

    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    Nope, not even close.

    Here is a copy and paste from that thread with an excellent explanation:

    The bill, currently, does nothing but delete the location restriction on CWFL holders for college or university facilities.

    It will still be unlawful to carry a firearm openly anywhere, 790.053, unless involved in one of the situations listed in 790.25(3).

    Plus it is still unlawful to carry a firearm on the property of any school. 790.115(2)(a).
