A Florida bill states that a person carrying a concealed weapon would only be required to carry valid identification and to show identification if asked by an officer without the need for a weapons permit.
State Representative, Chuck Brannon, believes that “this legislation is a major step forward in avoiding the steps that citizens have to go through to obtain a permit from the government to carry their own weapons.”
Christian Perez, owner and instructor of Florida Defensive Training, claims that “there is no common sense in the bill they are trying to pass.”
Perez trains people to get their permits so they can legally carry guns in Florida, but soon he won’t have to pass a law that would allow Floridians to carry guns without a permit.
The Florida defensive training instructor warned that “With the state requirements, the trainers don’t think it’s going to be bad enough to remove the only state requirement.”
The Bill states that a person carrying a concealed weapon must carry a valid identification card and show his or her identification if asked to do so by an officer.
Against the project are Democrats and relatives of those killed in two of the worst massacres in the country, Parkland High School in Broward and Pulse nightclub in Orlando.
Political analyst Mike Hernandez states that “the Republican Party wants this legislation and it is very likely they will get it, although what they present in the House probably won’t be the same as what is presented in the Senate.” There will be talks between them to see what will be the final product of this talk”.
