A Republican Party of Florida recent newsletter hawks the narrative that Governor Ron DeSantis just signed into law 'Constitutional Carry' in Florida.

HB 543 goes into effect on July 1, 2023, making Florida the 26th state to enact Constitutional Carry legislation.
“Constitutional Carry is in the books,” said Governor Ron DeSantis.
