ICYMI: DeSantis Calls for Open-Carry Special Session

As Florida Republicans sent a permitless carry bill to his desk at his urging yesterday, Ron DeSantis used his campaign stop at a gun store in Georgia to indicate to supporters that he could call a special session to pass further anti-gun safety legislation if he could secure the votes. DeSantis’ call for an open-carry special session comes after he expressed his support for going further than permitless carry earlier this year in a clear effort to boost his national profile and win over the MAGA base ahead of a potential presidential run.
