Today in Florida: Gas Stoves, Abortion Bans, New Permitless Concealed Gun Carrying Law

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (DeSantalini) grifted off the non-existent claim that the federal government would rip out your gas stove and haul it away by making some lame, “Don’t Tread on Florida’ gas stove aprons. The aprons sold out quickly but at a speech the governor gave at the Villages held up a sign featuring a return of them and warned the Democratic Party:

“When we say don’t tread on Florida or let us alone, we mean that including on your gas stoves. You’re not taking our gas stoves away from us, that is your choice and I know many people who cook a lot do not want to part with their gas stoves and so, we’re gonna stand up for that.”

Ron DeSantis quietly legalizes carrying concealed weapons without permits

The lack of fanfare around the measure was notable for a governor who regularly holds splashy news conferences and bill-signing ceremonies.

With little fanfare, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation Monday allowing residents to carry a concealed loaded weapon without a permit.

DeSantis signed the bill in a nonpublic event in his office with only bill sponsors, legislative leaders and gun rights advocates, including the National Rifle Association, in attendance. 

It was a notable departure for a governor who regularly holds splashy news conferences and bill-signing ceremonies. 

Florida is now the 26th state to pass some form of permitless carry legislation. The signing comes one week after six people, including three children, were gunned down at The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee.

Florida Senate passes 6-week abortion ban backed by DeSantis

“Bodily autonomy should not give a person the permission to kill an innocent human being. We live in a time where the consequences of our actions are an afterthought and convenience has been substitution for responsibility, and this is unacceptable when it comes to the protection of the most vulnerable,” said Sen. Erin Grall, a Republican who sponsored the bill.

The Florida Senate on Monday approved a bill to ban abortions after six weeks, a measure supported by Gov. Ron DeSantis as the Republican prepares to launch his expected presidential candidacy.

The proposal must still be approved by the House before it reaches the governor’s desk. Florida currently prohibits abortions after 15 weeks.

A six-week ban would more closely align Florida with the abortion restrictions of other Republican-controlled states and give DeSantis a political win on an issue important with GOP primary voters ahead of his potential White House run.
