Law enforcement officials worry about changes to gun laws

By

As the Florida legislature continues to debate changes to concealed weapons permits, local law enforcement officials are wary of changes. Gainesville Police Department Corporal Tscharna Senn says allowing guns to be carried openly would open the door for potential problems.

“It’s another opportunity for someone to use a firearm when that opportunity may not have been there before,” she says.

Senn says allowing people to openly carry weapons would increase the potential for a gun to fall in to the hands of someone not properly trained. She says permit holders would still be required to take classes and go through the proper channels to secure the permit. The intent behind the law is to protect legal holders who may accidentally expose their gun.
