HB463 & SB998 – Shall Issue Carry Licenses for Military & Vets:
Those who defend our country overseas should be able to defend themselves and their families at home. There have been too many incidences of violence against our troops who have just returned from overseas deployments and found themselves defenseless at home. Florida Carry authored legislation that will insure that our current troops and honorably discharged veterans can obtain a license to carry regardless of age or duty station. The bill will also require that fingerprint cards be accepted from military police and provost so that service members stationed overseas can complete their applications.
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.
This is a good first step toward full recognition of the right to bear arms by all law-abiding adults.
Florida Carry Authored and Strongly Supports These Bills
PASSED HOUSE & SENATE UNANIMOUSLY!

Because of the prior firearm training recieved in bootcamp I’d love to find out if military personnel require less of a process in recieving a concealed carry license.
You just submit your DD-214 as your proof of training. No civilian gun safety class required for Vets.
Submit a COPY of your DD-214. If you submit an original, you won’t get it back.
That’s kinda one of those “Front Toward Enemy” things. I would hope it to be obvious but…
