Florida’s pro-gun governor, Rick Scott, approved several bills on Friday covering everything from clarifying use of force to ending insurance discrimination against gun owners.

HB89, called the “Warning Shot” bill by the media, changes the interpretation of the threatened use of force. It makes it legal for someone to effectively display a weapon in a self-defense situation.

HB255/ SB424 is designed to stop discriminatory insurance practices against firearms owners.

HB7029, commonly called “the Pop Tart bill”, attempts to address some of the overreaching, and lets be honest, ridiculous implementation of zero tolerance for educators and students in terms of simulated gun play.

Finally Gov. Scott signed HB523, and HB525, which are designed to speed up Florida’s concealed-carry permit applications.
