SIGN THE PETITION: Keep Guns off Florida College Campuses and OPPOSE HB 4001

The police chiefs and university presidents of all 12 of Florida's universities oppose campus carry. They oppose HB 4001 because they know concealed weapons would make Florida's college and university campuses less safe.

College campuses along with bars, schools, courthouses, polling places, airports and athletic events are places where concealed weapons in Florida are banned.....and for good reason. Students today deal with high stakes academic pressure, combined with the increased risk of suicide, and widespread drug and alcohol abuse. Adding deadly weapons to the mix can have disastrous consequences. 

Concealed-weapon permit holders in Florida are not required to undergo extensive training and therefore lack the skills to prevent a mass shooting. In fact, they are more likely to shoot innocent bystanders than is law enforcement, making these situations even more volatile and dangerous. 

Access to guns will also result in more fatal suicide attempts. Making firearms readily available to college students makes it likely that more of the 24,000 unsuccessful suicide attempts each year will instead be fatal. 

HB 4001 is another example of how powerful the gun lobby has become in the Florida legislature. This NRA backed proposal is a distraction from the real and urgent need to pass common sense gun safety measures popular with voters-- such as universal background check and banning the sale of high capacity magazines. 

We need real leaders to stand up to the corrupting influence of the NRA and tell them ENOUGH. Add your name to OPPOSE HB 4001.
