LAKELAND — The League of Women Voters Florida and the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus will hold a statewide summit in Orlando on Thursday morning to rally Floridians against proposed legislation to allow guns on college and university campuses.
Identical bills were filed in the House and Senate last week which, if passed during the 2016 legislative session, would delete a current provision in Florida law preventing people with concealed carry licensees from taking firearms onto campuses.
