Florida Republicans Propose "Campus Carry"

In a move that could refuel a long-running debate, a House Republican on Thursday proposed a measure that would allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to carry guns on college and university campuses.

Rep. Anthony Sabatini, R-Howey-in-the-Hills, filed the bill (HB 6007) for consideration during the 2019 legislative session, which starts March 5.

Under current law, people are barred from carrying guns on college and university campuses.

LEAP Forward is tracking HB 6007 and will be grading action on the bill.
