FL: Senator Portilla Blocks Vote on Campus Carry
Campus carry hit a major roadblock Thursday when the chair of a key Senate committee said it will not consider SB 68 this session. The measure would have allowed Florida’s 1.4 million concealed weapons permit holders to carry a gun into classes on university and college campuses..
Judiciary Committee chair Sen. Miguel Diaz de la Portilla, R-Miami, also fired a fatal shot into a campus carry proposal last year by refusing to schedule the bill for a hearing. He said he does not see a Second Amendment issue when university security policies prohibit firearms on campus.
