Robert L. “Skip” Jarvis, Jr. State Attorney for the Florida 3rd Circuit stood before the Senate Criminal Justice Committee today to support it;
Senator Margolis (D – Miami) voted for it;
So has EVERYONE else who has had a chance so far…
The House and Senate bills that will at least allow current and veteran military members under the age of 21 to get a Concealed Weapons/Firearms License have thus far met with unanimous , bipartisan, support in the first four committees it has come before.
A first in Florida politics!
No pro-gun bill has ever in modern history had such overwhelming support in Florida! EVER!
It seems that in an election year, with our troops coming home in droves, even the most anti-gun legislators can at least agree that our troops should be able the defend themselves and their families at home.
There are over 8,000 adult service members under the age of 21 living in the State of Florida. Countless more resident veterans and annual military visitors who will have their right the bear arms advanced by these bills.
But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep.
This is a good first step toward full recognition of the right to bear arms by all law-abiding adults.

I feel if your old enough to sever to protect your freedoms and sign legal contracts should be able to carry conceal permit, and be abe to purchase a weapon.
Great, now if we could get them working on both Constitutional carry, and open carry, we might start to get back to more accurate interpretation of The Constitution.
As State Attorney for the Third Judicial Circuit of Florida, I have no fear of the law abiding public possessing a firearm for lawful purposes. Having served in the United States Navy, I understand and trust these young servicemen and women. I also believe that as they travel around our state, often from duty station to duty station, they should have the right to be safe during their travels. God bless them.
Thank you for supporting the rights of our troops.
