MIAMI (Feb. 28, 2022) – REPUBLICAN PARTY OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY IN FLORIDA.
WHEREAS, Florida, unlike many other states, requires a permit for legally owned firearms to be carried outside of limited areas such as one’s home and vehicle; and
WHEREAS, criminals do not follow the law and the permit requirement disarmed their victims; and
WHEREAS, based on evidence from our state and other states, a permit requirement doesn't make people safer; and
WHEREAS, on page twelve of the national Republican Party’s platform states “we support constitutional carry statutes and the salute the states that have passed them”; and
WHEREAS, Florida should join the growing number of states who recognize constitutional carry, meaning that the constitution is our permit to carry; now
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Republican Party of Miami-Dade County supports constitutional carry, including the current bill, House Bill 103 of the 2022 legislative session and any future bills introduced in future legislative sessions, in which anyone who legally possesses a firearm should be able to carry it, open or concealed, without a permit, while maintaining licensing as optional for reciprocity purposes. Upon passage of this Resolution, we urge all Republican legislators to support such legislation.
