Did The Amendment Pass?
Senator Ellyn Bogdanoff amended the bill and removed the open carry provision from the open-carry bill. Bogdanoff is now Obama's new BBF in the fight to take away gun rights from citizens. It will probably be another 24 years before we get a chance at passing a similar bill thanks to Senator Bogdanoff Florida's new candidate, and Obama's newest friend in repealing the 2nd amendment.

BIG difference in wording.
Im just guessing, if you have an IWB holster and flash your weapon it would be "rude" because it would show your undies.....
Sorry to hear it guy's. At least yall will have another run next year...
Here in Texas, we only have Legislature every two years.
I am very excited about our open carry bill and hope yall get to enjoy it soon while visiting us.
Dont give up, get stronger and go back for more!
Be sure to thank Marion Hammer, as well, especially now that she is blaming OCers for the failure of the bill.
I'm curious how can she rationalize blaming OCDO & FloridaCarry.org for an NRA approved amendment?

It's circumstances like this where 'law-abiding' ceases being something to be proud of.
