Call to Action HB 4001 Campus Carry

Our right to self-defense will be debated again Wednesday, November 4th in the House Higher Education & Workforce Subcommittee. HB 4001 will repeal the law that prohibits citizens with a concealed weapons permit from carrying their weapon on Florida Campuses. The good news is that HB 4001 has already passed one committee and the Senate companion SB 68 has passed two committees. These were great victories despite the anti-gun rights groups that showed up to spread false and unproven claims.
These anti-gun rights groups are not giving up and in fact they are doubling their efforts to squash our right to self-defense. Let's make sure that the members of the House Higher Education and Workforce Subcommittee hear from us that understand we absolutely have the right to self-defense and the 2nd Amendment was created to protect that right.

The House Campus Carry bill HB 4001 will be heard in the House Higher Education & Workforce Subcommittee next Wednesday, November 4th, 2015.

Please call and e-mail the following members of the House Higher Education & Workforce Subcommittee and tell them to vote yes on HB 4001.

Talking Points

Colleges and Universities are open environments, there is no one entry point with metal detectors and armed guards performing pat-downs and bag inspections. Colleges cannot guarantee safety and should not deprive people of the ability to protect themselves.
“Gun free zones” only disarms law-abiding citizens and violates their right to protect themselves as well as the opportunity to stop a criminal and save lives.
Eight States have “Campus Carry” including Utah for the last ten years. Utah University officials report no improper incidents on campus in that 10 year time period.
