Once every 20 years, Florida’s Constitution provides for the creation of a 37-member revision commission, called the Constitution Revision Commission, for the purpose of reviewing Florida’s Constitution and proposing changes for voter consideration. The Commission meets for approximately one year, traveling the State of Florida, identifing issues, performing research, and possibly recommending changes to the Constitution.
“Second Amendment supporters need to attend these hearings and speak up so that our rights to keep and bear arms are protected and even enhanced,” said U.S. Law Shield of Florida Independent Program Attorney James Phillips.
He said it’s likely that anti-gun groups will show up at these CRC hearings and demand that gun-control measures be added to our Constitution. “So gun owners should attend and speak up about keeping all gun-control measures out of Florida’s Constitution,” he added.
