Packing Heat on Our Middle Bridge

They came carrying signs, pushing baby carriages and packing weapons of war.

Small in number, polite to a fault, and well versed on their second amendment rights, the members of ‘Florida Carry’ continue to flaunt a loophole in a Florida law that allows them to carry semi-automatic weapons if they are camping or fishing or hunting.
Thus the fishing poles and holstered Glocks, and thus, the discomfort law enforcement had with them walking through the green market in West Palm Beach while hundreds gathered with kids and dogs on a peaceful Saturday morning.

There were no incidents and the ‘Florida Carry’ members broke no laws.

Palm Beach Mayor Gail Coniglio and Police Chief Nick Caristo want no part of ‘Florida Carry’ on the Island and hope to pass a resolution that would prohibit display of the weapons within 1500 feet of schools, lifeguarded beaches, and places of worship.

‘Florida Carry’ has sued municipalities that have challenged what they deem their Second Amendment right to bear arms.
