Florida Governor Signs New Concealed Carry Law

Firearms; Provides that a person who is licensed to carry a concealed firearm is not in violation of law if the firearm is briefly and openly displayed under certain circumstances. Allows the Division of Licensing of the DOACS to take fingerprints from concealed carry license applicants. Provides that a person may not openly carry a weapon or firearm or carry a concealed weapon or firearm into specified locations. Provides that concealed carry licensees shall not be prohibited from carrying or storing a firearm in a vehicle for lawful purposes, etc.
EFFECTIVE DATE: upon becoming a law

Scott waited awhile but finally put the pen to this halfass bill today. Now it'll take, oh, lets say 3 or 4 years before the word filters down to law enforcement. And to some counties it won't really matter as they'll continue to harass law abiding citizens anyway.
