Florida Governor Rick Scott signed SB 7026 into law today.  As discussed in our previous post, SB 7026 changes Florida law relevant to the sale of firearms in the following manner:

  • The minimum age to purchase rifles and shotguns in Florida has been increased from 18 to 21.
  • There will be a three-day waiting period on the purchase of any firearm, with exceptions for law enforcement officers, members of the military, licensed hunters, and persons with concealed carry licenses.
  • Bump stocks are banned.
