Ammoland.com offers the following list of firearms-related bills filed for the 2017 Florida legislative session. They expect Gunshine State pols will file more pro-gun bills to be filed before the session starts on March 7.

 

SB-128 Restoring Self-defense Immunity – by Sen. Rob Bradley (Republican) – Restores the self-defense immunity provision of the stand your ground law to the original intent of the Legislature. Restores the presumption of innocence, of a person who exercises self-defense, until proven guilty by the state. (SB-128 currently has the following sponsors. In addition to Sen. Rob Bradley, Senators Dennis Baxley, Aaron Bean and Wilton Simpson have cosponsored the bill so far)

 

SB-140 Open Carry of a Handgun – by Sen. Greg Steube (Republican) – Allows persons licensed to carry a Concealed Weapon or Firearm (CW) to carry openly; removes the restriction against CW license holders carrying on college and university campuses; removes the restriction against CW license holders carrying firearms inside the passenger terminal of an airport (outside the secure area) ; removes the restriction against CW carrying in courthouses under certain conditions;

 

SB-142 Storage of Firearms – by Sen. Gary Farmer (Democrat) – Removes exceptions in the safe storage of firearms law and makes the gun owner a criminal if a person under 16 years of age breaks into a home or vehicle and steals a firearm.

 

SB-170 Adding Prohibited Places for Weapons and Firearms – by Sen. Oscar Braynon (Democrat) – Prohibits Concealed Weapons and Firearms license holders from carrying firearms into any performing arts center or legitimate theater.

 

SB-254 “Assault Weapons” ban – by Sen. Linda Stewart (Democrat) – Bans the sale and possession of semiautomatic handguns, rifles and shotguns that use a detachable magazine or tubular magazine (almost all semiautomatic firearms). Provides for firearms to be surrendered to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).

 

HB-167 “Assault Weapons” ban – by Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith (Democrat) – Bans the sale and possession of semiautomatic handguns, rifles and shotguns that use a detachable magazine or tubular magazine (almost all semiautomatic firearms).

HB-291 Constitutional Amendment to Exempt Law Enforcement from Gun Control – by Rep. Don Hahnfeldt (Republican) To exempt law enforcement from the 72-Hour Waiting Period on the personal purchase of personal handguns. In 1990 law enforcement led the charge to impose a gun control measure on you and me — a 3-day Waiting Period on the purchase of handguns — but they failed to persuade the Legislature to exempt law enforcement. They’re back trying again.
