    HB-1029 Sponsored by Representative Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala) in the House and Senator Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) in the Senate does the following:

    4. Requires that a new rule be formulated by DEP that allows firearms in state parks and stipulates that firearms shall at all times be in the possession of a responsible party or properly secured within or to a vehicle or temporary housing, which shall include motor homes, travel trailers, recreational vehicles, campers, tents, or other enclosed structures, while in state parks.

    The bill passed the House 90-27 and passed the Senate 31-6

    Special thanks go to Senate President Tom Lee (R-Brandon) and House Speaker Allan Bense (R-Panama City) for helping move this legislation.

    Hmm. I didn't know that you COULDN'T do this before.

    That's rather interesting. Anyone know what the deal is in Wyoming? I go out to the Bighorns every year with a big group of friends, and someone's always brought along a rifle or two for target practice, heh ...

    I would think it would be suicide not to have a firearm out there in Wyoming!!!

    You're kidding, right?

    Wyoming has fewer people living in it than Rhode island. It's a wasteland. There's no one around for miles, and in the Bighorns even the bears there are few and far between (and only black bears).

    Dude, I live in wyoming.

    You made me cry.

    (actually it's all true)
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    No but i am going to shoot prarie dogs today....... Sorry derail

    Colorado has a similar law to the one just enacted in Florida. Also the description of Wyoming is accurate the capitol city has a population of 51,000+ people. My home town of Brighton Colorado (ever heard of it? didnt think so.) has more people then the capitol of Wyoming.......

    State parks have the lowest violent crime resolution rates of all areas. they also have growing issues with people growing drugs and violently protecting their drug fields from people walking by them...

    this is a good development!
