State Rep. Greg Steube has appeared on The Gun Writer TV more times than any other guest.

There’s a good reason for this. He’s the most pro-gun lawmaker in state government — an ardent supporter of our Second Amendment rights.

Greg joined Mike Young and me Thursday to discuss campus carry and other pro-gun bills he’s sponsored.

While it’s not as well known as his campus carry bill, Greg’s HB 4031 would allow concealed carry in specified public meetings and government career centers — at the local, county and state level.

It eliminates a few more death traps that are gun free zones.

Greg is also optimistic about how campus carry will fare in the upcoming legislative session, which starts next week, but he needs your support.

We hope you enjoy the video!

    I would be less concerned about the extension of open or concealed carry into so many public spaces if I had any confidence that “good guys with a gun” were really trained to safely respond in an active shooter situation. As a former handgun owner in NYC I learned to accurately shoot a 9MM Beretta at a gun range near City Hall in Manhattan. I was pretty good shooting standard and man targets but never once did I feel trained to face down a criminal or terrorist in a surprise situation. Most cops have trouble hitting live targets in a stressful situation, which is why large departments, even with some tactical training as part of initial training have specialized SWAT and other emegency response units.
    I believe anyone with a concealed carry permit, who will then be open carrying, theoretically to be able to defend themselves and others should pass the full tactical combat training the police require and re-qualify annually.
    Also one other consideration should be given to the challenge presented to police when they respond to an active shooter call and have to determine good guys from bad guys if multiple people are exchanging fire.
