However, it looks like there is an excellent chance this year for campus carry to pass in the form of HB 859, sponsored by Representatives Rick Jasperse and Mandi Ballinger, pictured below. Perhaps Florida politicians should watch and take notes on how it gets done.
Interviews with Florida citizens who choose Georgia colleges and universities with campus carry being a deciding factor is something I'm planning for future articles. So stay tuned!
Just to rub it in, I've emailed this to all of the Florida House and Senate members:
Dear Florida Lawmakers,
Florida is in for a bit of embarrassment soon if SB 68 fails to pass in the Senate. It looks like Georgia will probably get campus carry this year under HB 859.
If so, some students who had planned to attend public universities in Florida will instead choose public universities in Georgia, and some already enrolled will transfer!
And I will be interviewing some of those students and publishing those interviews widely.
Also be aware, from now on, victims of violent campus crime will be asking some of you why you failed to give them the chance to avoid injury from assault, robbery, and rape.
For those of you who truly stood with us on the side of liberty, thank you! Keep fighting the good fight!
