    Haven't read the text of the Bill, but on principle, I'm hoping it passes. However, I'm not holding my breath.

    Another misleading BS headline.

    There are no prohibitions for CCW in churches in Florida. Don't need to be "OK'ed."

    Government meetings is another matter.

    This ^^^^

    When the article starts out with a headline that is complete BS, why would I bother to read any further?

    Why are they expressly putting churches into this bill when they are already legal?

    Because many churches have schools on their property which would put the church off-limits as far as firearms. This bill would allow carry in the church without consideration for the proximity of the school.

    The real question is will it survive a challenge from church authorities who, as a matter of policy, prohibit carry in their churches as the property "owner."

    If I read this correctly this allows guns in churches when the church is using school property. My understanding is that if on school property guns are still not allowed.
    I have Grandchildren that go to a non public school. They have a church on the same property.

    Yes... in the body of the article. But, the headline is misleading.
