Moskowitz Says the Quiet Part Out Loud: “Florida Legislators Introduce ‘Political Carry’ Legislation”

Parkland, FL

PARKLAND, FL – Today, Congressman Jared Moskowitz (D-Florida) released the following statement after Republicans in the Florida Legislature introduced dangerous legislation that would remove commonsense requirements for a permit and training to carry concealed guns:

“Just before the five-year anniversary of the murders at my high school in Parkland, the legislature proposes more guns as a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. Five years later, the gun reforms in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Act still exist today because they work. Republicans in the Florida legislature who supported the MSD Act were re-elected. When you take steps to keep your community safe, the voters reward and stand by you. This proposal is about politics, it’s “Political Carry” and they know it.”

An American Progress study from 2022 showed that states with permit-less carry laws saw a massive 22% increase in gun homicides over the course of three years.
