FL Carry Open Carry Event, Saturday April 6 in Ocala, FL.

Post by Miami_JBT »

Florida Carry will hold its Second Annual Open Carry Fishing Adventure at Ocala Tuscawilla Park 829 NE Sanchez Ave, Ocala, FL 34470 on Saturday, April 6, 2019 from 10am – 5pm.

The event is held during one of Florida's free fishing weekend. So you don't need a fishing license to fish. Under Florida Statute 790.25(3) you can legally carry, while fishing (or going to or from), your unconcealed pistol or long gun.

The irony is that currently under state law, a person who is licensed to conceal carry a firearm would be arrested and jailed just for walking around the same park while not fishing, if any part of their firearm became visible from underneath their clothing.

A person's manner of carry should not be dictated by the government. If you are licensed to carry, then you should have the freedom to carry your firearm concealed or not.

Is there any other Constitutional Right we have as citizens that must be practice in secret or seek a government permission slip to exercise?

Florida Republicans have continually refused to restore the right of open carry, then Florida State Attorney Janet Reno organized a coop in 1987 that stripped Floridians of their rights during a late at night session in the Florida Legislature.

Attend this Florida Carry event (no membership required) if at all possible to show your support for your carry rights, and then join Florida Carry for only $25 per year. If you join their $50 plan you even get a free quality made holster.

Additionally, call and write the office of Governor Ron DeSantis and ask if he intends to take a backseat to open carry rights just like former Governor and now current Senator Rick Scott did, as he watched Republican lead leadership in the State Legislature kill all bills that would legalize open carry.

Tell the new Governor you want him to take the lead on this and not just watch from the sidelines while the Legislature plays its games.

It's high time for liberty to shine in the state once known as the “Gunshine State”.
