Luis Valdes, the Florida director for Gun Owners of America, said many of the lawmakers who approved the MSD reforms six years ago are still in the Legislature and today block pro-gun legislation.
Gun Owners of America's top priority is to get a bill to allow open carry, the unconcealed carrying of firearms in public places, he said.
Gov. Ron DeSantis endorsed the idea last March, but on opening day of this year's session, House Speaker Paul Renner, R-Palm Coast, said lawmakers had "no appetite" for open carry.
And then after Valdes' group and others got a House committee to lower the age to buy rifles, Senate President Kathleen Passidomo, R-Naples, dismissed the proposal as a "non-starter."
