Default Florida: Open-carry approved in committee

Florida: Open-carry approved in committee

All I can find it that it has been passed but I can't find the Law itself.
I would like to read the law's peculiarities myself so that I know what I can and cannot do.

The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday easily approved the so called "open carry" bill for concealed weapons permit holders. The vote was 14 4 with Democrats John Julien of Miami and Darren Soto of Orlando joining all Republicans in voting for the bill (HB 517), which is sponsored by Rep. Chris Dorworth, R Lake Mary. He says the bill is needed to prevent lawful permit holders from inadvertently violating Florida law.

Update of sorts

'Docs vs. Glocks' bill heads to Governor Scott

Last line says accidental showing of concealed firearms will not be crime.

Great news for Florida!!! I think it is total Bull that if you have a ccw, and you firearm is even momentarily exposed, it is a crime. WTF!! What is the purpose of that anyway, so some creptard ding-dong doesn't get frightened?

The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first. Thomas Jefferson
