Keep the Sunshine State from becoming the Gunshine State

The Sunshine State may soon be far less family friendly. State lawmakers are considering giving gun owners with concealed carry permits the ability to openly carry their firearms in public places.

With Disney World, Universal Studios, miles of pristine sand beaches, and world-class shopping and dining, Florida is a top destination for many families in the United States and around the world. But imagine going on vacation with your kids and loved ones to a place where any stranger standing inches from you in line, or just passing by on the street, could be displaying or handling a deadly weapon. No, thank you.

Tell the Florida tourism industry: families don't want to vacation where people are openly carrying their weapons.
