Pledge to Support Campus Carry in Florida

 image001.jpg

Today, too many college campuses are not safe. They are "Gun-Free-Zones" where murderers, rapists, terrorists, and robbers commit crimes without fear of their victims defending themselves with a firearm.

According to one report, an estimated 1 in 5 five female college students reported that they have been sexually assaulted during their college years. It has been called an epidemic of sexual assault on our nation's college campuses.

In Florida, the Legislature is considering passage of a bill that would restore the right of persons 21 years of age and older, who have a state issued license to carry concealed firearms, to do so on college campuses.

Anti-gun and anti-self defense groups are fighting to deny these law-abiding adults from being able to exercise their fundamental right to self-defense.

Don't let Florida' s college and university administrators and their faculty unions, along with gun control groups like former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's "Everytown for Gun Safety" and the League of Women Voters, deny the constitutional freedoms of law-abiding Floridians.

Sign our petition to let Florida’s state legislators know that you support Campus Carry.  Tell them you support Campus Carry -- not Gun Fee Zones.

 

Will you sign?

    This has long needed to be done.


    This prohibition (along with several others) should never have existed in the first place.

    I am a student at the University of South Florida who is concerned about my security. I took my concealed weapons class the same week I turned 21 and applied for my license. It is my right as citizen of the State of Florida to be able to carry my concealed weapon for personal protection and I spend most of my time on campus.

    I support this bill. As a student and former employee of a Florida college I see this as a deterrent to gun violence. On campus is no different than being at the mall. There are people carrying guns legally or not. The people who have set out to be evil and kill will do so. Typically they are looking for attention and are satisfied with the media attention, covering their actions for weeks. I have to believe that they might avoid Florida schools because they may be stopped before a massacre. They then become a footnote in a story about a good samaritan.

    Another thing to remember is, if you are in the effective range of a firearm you have firearms in your life. Trying to believe otherwise is comforting to some but is far from factual. Very few firearms have a range of 40 yards or less. Most have a range of 100 yards or more.

    Gun free zones are nothing more than victim gathering zones in the eyes of violent criminals. Text our college students by allowing them to protect themselves.
