‘Pop Tart’ bill in committee today


Lee’s note: Two pro-gun bills will be heard in committee today. One allows concealed or open carry during a mandatory evacuation, even for those Unified-Sportsmen-Of-Florida-logowithout a concealed carry license.

The other legislation has become known as the “Pop Tart Bill.” It will bring some sanity and common sense to zero-tolerance policies in Florida schools.
