Florida state lawmakers are considering giving gun owners with concealed carry permits the ability to openly carry their firearms in public places–meaning popular vacation spots like Disney World, Universal Studios and Epcot Center, as well as Florida beaches. This gun-lobby backed bill (SB300) is a dangerous idea–and Florida police agree.
Why does this impact New Yorkers? Because more than 10 million New Yorkers visited Florida last year. In fact, New York provided the most visitors out of any state.
So New Yorkers, use your economic power! Tell Florida Senate Judiciary Chair Miguel Diaz De La Portilla to vote NO on SB300–or you’ll have to take your vacation dollars elsewhere!
