Florida residents are currently only legally permitted to purchase firearms from Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.
I wouldn't have imagined that such a rule existed in FL.

Hopefully this bill passes. Now if AL & MS would take heed and update their firearm law, that would totally be awesome.

There are a couple of metro counties that could learn a thing or two from FL with respect to improving the turn around on carry licenses too.

open carry of firearms would be restored to the citizens of Florida under SB 234
This is yet another reference I've seen recently that FL once had open carry, but it was taken away sometime in the past.

I found this interesting article that explains more of the history.

Janet Reno did it.

Janet Reno, State Attorney for Dade County at the time, called on the legislature to close what she called a loophole (dubbed the “Dodge City Loopholeâ€) in the new statewide carry laws and outright ban Open Carry throughout the state.
