Florida Senate passes bill to let gun owners carry weapons in emergency evacuations

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/25/2015 - 07:05
By Bill Cotterell TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Reuters) - Florida lawmakers on Tuesday advanced a bill that would allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons when they evacuate during hurricanes or other emergencies. The legislation, supported by the National Rifle Association, would give gun owners a 48-hour exemption from needing a license to carry a concealed weapon during an evacuation. Supporters pointed to the looting seen in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 as a reason to approve the exception for law-abiding gun owners. “It’s preventative and most likely will save lives,” said state Senator Joseph Abruzzo, a Democrat from Palm Beach County, noting that guns left unattended in homes could be stolen.
