Steube Files Series Of Gun Measures


After deciding to break up a mammoth gun-rights bill, Senate Judiciary Chairman Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, has filed a series of measures that address individual firearms issues.

As of mid-day Wednesday, Steube had filed six gun-related bills this week, including a proposal (SB 622) that would allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to carry firearms on college and university campuses. Other proposals include a measure (SB 618) that would allow people to carry guns in airport terminals; a measure (SB 620) that would allow people to carry guns at legislative meetings; and a measure (SB 626) that would allow people to carry guns at local-government meetings.

Steube said last week that he would separate the parts of the broader bill. “Just from feeling the tea leaves, it’s probably better to attack it piece by piece,” Steube said at the time.
