Default Hurricane season in Florida.

When Hurricane Season begins on June 1st, if Floridians have to be evacuated not only will they be allowed to bring their children, their pets and their valuables but will also be allowed to legally carry their guns, even without a weapons permit.

With Gov. Rick Scott's signature of SB 290, all lawful gun owners will be permitted to carry a concealed weapon if they are complying with a mandatory evacuation during a state of emergency.

Talk about common sense gun laws. While it is true that this isn't the great leap to Constitutional Carry that we have seen in other states in recent years it is a quantum leap forward in retrospect to how gun owners were treated after Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana...... --> good job gov!!!!

Double edged sword. Yeah, there's a new law allowing it. But what should have happened was repealing the law that prohibited it in the first place.

What happens when lots of guns show up at shelters? Is there going to be a place to secure them? Might be like the superdome all over . Still a step in the right direction.
