Florida “Warning Shot” Bill Signed Into Law


Hey folks, Well, it’s about time. Today, Florida’s Governor Rick Scott finally signed the “Warning Shot” bill (HB-89) that had been passed by the state House and Senate and sent to his desk way back in early April (h/t Miguel, over at Gun Free Zone). I won’t go into all the ways that this bill is NOT a “warning shot” bill, because I’ve already done so, here: Florida “Warning Shot” Bill Passes Senate, Heads to Governor’s Desk.
