Fears about open carry, firearms on campuses unfounded

Senate Bill 234 was filed in December and is unrelated to the Arizona tragedy, despite recent media articles making it sound like a response. This bill would remove the restriction on individuals currently holding a valid Concealed Weapon or Firearm License (CWFL) from carrying on college campuses. It would also introduce open carry to Florida.

Open campus should allow gun carry

The right to carry arms generally should not be infringed, except in limited places deemed sensitive. Florida defines these “places of nuisance” as airport terminals, courthouses, prisons and some government buildings. These places inevitably are protected by metal detectors and security guards due to their sensitive nature. Under these circumstances, a common citizen could be expected to accept a temporary forfeit of his rights knowing that, in return, these sanctuaries provide reasonable measures against danger.
