Lee’s Note: This just in from NRA & USF on SB 544:

Much misinformation is circulating about SB-544 by Sen. Wilton Simpson/HB-523 by Rep. Jamie Grant — a bill to allow Florida’s Tax Collectors to assist citizens in submitting applications for Concealed Weapons and Firearms Licenses.
As sometimes happens, people shoot off their mouths without having a clue what they’re talking about. In this case people obviously haven’t read the bill. Click here to read the bill: http://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2014/0544/BillText/__/PDF
So, it was with great amusement and joy when we saw the article by Lee Williams with the Sarasota Herald-Tribune that debunked the false information and laid out what the bills really does.
This is a great piece. Enjoy.
