Licensed gun owners may very soon be allowed to carry concealed weapons on school grounds owned by religious schools.
Florida Senators gave final legislative approval to the controversial bill in a party-line vote that was held this past Tuesday. The Current law allows carrying weapons on church grounds unless it is a school. According to Sen. Gruters, “HB 259 removes that provision permitting guns in schools owned or used by religious institutions, even if there is no church on the property. What this bill does is closes the loophole that exists now,”
