After the Republican governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, reportedly signed a bill into law on Monday that eliminates the requirement for an individual to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm.

The United States now has a majority of states with laws on the books that allow for constitutional carry.

This brings the total number of states with such laws to 48.

The constitutional carry measure was sent to Governor Ron DeSantis, who signed it into law on Monday morning.

The voting on the bill took place in the Florida Senate last week, and the final tally was 27 in favor and 13 opposed.

There were already 25 states that have permitless carry laws on the books, which means that Florida tipped the scales to make the United States into being a constitutional carry-majority nation.

According to the legislation, qualified persons who are at least 21 years old can carry without first obtaining a permission from the government or paying a fee for the privilege.

Those who are still interested in obtaining a carry permit are able to do so in accordance with the law despite the fact that the legislation does not alter who is qualified to receive a carry permit.

Neighboring When Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a bill into law about a year ago that was comparable to other states’ constitutional carry laws, Georgia became the 25th state to have such laws on the books.

Democrats and activists in the state of Florida contended that an easier access to concealed carry permits would lead to an increase in violent crime.

However, over the course of the last several months, Republicans in the state claimed, successfully, that the law will better safeguard people and their families from possible crimes, while simultaneously continuing to advance liberties guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
