The Florida Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence is expanding its mission to block irresponsible gun proposals, such as Campus Carry, Open Carry and expansions to Stand Your Ground. Our coalition continues its commitment to to bringing smart, common sense gun legislation to our state. The LWV of Florida and over 100 statewide and national coalition partners, including The Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus, the Association of Florida Colleges, National Council of Jewish Women have successfully defeated these proposals in the past. The power of our coalition will ensure that we continue to defeat bills that would endanger Florida residents and visitors to our state. We remain committed to working proactively for the expansion of background checks and a ban on assault weapons; additionally, we will also work defensively to protect the future of Florida from more needless gun violence.
