DeSantis quietly signs permit-less carry bill behind closed doors

Published on

This morning in a room with about 20 people, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law a bill that lets people carry guns without a permit and without any training.

“Permitless Carry policy hidden in a ‘Public Safety’ bill does not make our communities safer,” Rep. Christine Hunschofsky, D-Parkland, said in a statement. “This is a wildly unpopular bill, which is probably why it was signed quietly, behind closed doors, and with no fanfare.”

The bill takes effect on July 1 and has faced attacks on both sides of the gun debate. People from gun safety advocacy groups have said allowing people to carry concealed guns in public without training, and removing an additional background check, will make the public less safe.

Gun rights groups have criticized the bill for not going far enough, saying that without allowing people to openly carry guns in public, the bill isn’t a true “constitutional carry” measure as DeSantis guaranteed and as the Legislature has hailed.
