HB 259 - Safety of Religious Institutions


Send Florida House Representatives an email urging them to support HB 259! As filed, this bill contained a fatal flaw making the bill a bigger burden than benefit to Florida carriers. Fortunately, Rep. Cord Byrd, a Florida attorney, amended this bill to remove the problem language. For the overwhelming majority of people, an armed attack on a house of worship is an unthinkable act. Unfortunately, events have proven that the people must be able to defend themselves and their loved ones from even the unthinkable. This good bill removes the fear of prosecution because just one's place of worship is co-located with a school. Florida Carry wholeheartedly supports this good bill. Please tell your representatives to vote YES on HB 259.
