Submitted by IWB, on May 22nd, 2015


A controversial bill allowing Florida residents to carry guns during mandatory emergency evacuations has been signed into law by Governor Scott.
It allows citizens without concealed weapons permits to take their guns with them on state-ordered evacuations.
State Senator Jeff Brandes supported the bill. He said he doesn’t think if someone carries a gun in their backpack or suitcase while complying with an evacuation order that they should be treated as a felon.
