Law Shield would like to praise a common-sense expansion of gun rights in Florida that is contained in SB 290, a bill which the State Senate passed in late March.

SB 290 would allow gun owners to take their guns in their cars without a concealed carry permit during a state of emergency like a hurricane.

When a mandatory evacuation forces a gun owner to take the family, pets and important documents and leave home and other belongings behind, that citizen should not be deprived of the right to take firearms along rather than leave them behind for looters.

SB 290 would allow people the legal ability to avoid such a scenario.
