A new bill in Florida would allow for the open-carry of firearms in the state, including on the campuses of Florida’s universities.

Sen. Greg Evers (R-Crestview) introduced the legislation, SB 234, which is currently in committee.

If passed, the bill would allow anyone with a concealed weapons permit to also carry a firearm visible to the public. Florida is one of seven states in the country that currently does not allow a person to do that.

The legislation would also allow people to openly carry a firearm on campus at a Florida university. Under current law, they are not allowed to do that.

Even if the bill passes, people will still not be allowed to carry a gun into a police station, jail, courtroom, government building, professional sporting event, or public school.
