FDP Chair Nikki Fried on Passage of DeSantis’s Permitless Carry Bill

Today, as the Florida Legislature sent a permitless carry bill to Ron DeSantis to sign at his urging – barely days after yet another deadly school shooting – Florida Democratic Party Chair Nikki Fried released the following statement:

“Florida Republicans have delivered exactly what Ron DeSantis asked for in his shameless effort to boost his national profile and win over the MAGA base: a permitless carry bill that could make it easier for criminals to carry guns and that some law enforcement officials have warned could make our communities less safe. As Florida’s former Commissioner of Agriculture, I oversaw the licensing of concealed weapon permits and I saw firsthand how the process helps keep our communities safe. This is just the latest example of DeSantis using this legislative session to push an extreme agenda that puts his own ambitions and special interests like the gun lobby ahead of Floridians.”
