Florida’s sheriff’s are offering an alternative proposal to open carry.

The elected law enforcement officials announced a proposal to ensure that law abiding, concealed carry permit holders are protected from arrest and prosecution for inadvertently displaying a firearm.

The Florida Sheriff’s Association is offering this proposal to protect Florida’s 1.5 million concealed carry permit holders and clarify Florida laws related to the inadvertent display of firearms, without legalizing complete open carry.

In announcing the proposal, the FSA is asking the Legislature to consider an alternative proposal that closes the loopholes but balances public safety concerns.
