On July 1st, 2023, Florida House Bill (HB) 543 went into effect. This is a law signed by Florida governor and U.S. presidential candidate, Ron Desantis which allows Floridians to carry concealed weapons without a government-issued permit. In other words, you no longer have to prove competency that you know how to use a firearm safely.
The real questions are these:
1. Does this law make the public safer, or does it place innocent lives in more danger?
2. Now that anyone can carry a concealed weapon with no required training in Florida and 25 other states, does that support law enforcement to protect the public, or does it make their job that much more difficult?
3. Finally, does Ron Desantis’ House Bill (HB) 543 really strengthen 2nd Amendment rights, or is it potentially giving responsible gun owners a bad name?
You decide. Please sign and share my petition on Change.org/OneCentTax. This is a petition to support funding for a comprehensive, independent, and nonpartisan scholarly study on school gun violence with a $.01 excise tax on every bullet sold to civilians for only one year.
