For Immediate Release:
In order to keep churches a safe environment for worship; in our most recent study, we found 62.6% supported persons with concealed weapons permits being permitted to carry a gun while at church or on church property. If passed in Tallahassee, this will be a big move in safeguarding our families and children during their time of worship. In Tallahassee, Sen. Joe Gruters (R- District 23) has a bill (Senate Bill 498) similar to this which should be going to the floor for a vote fairly soon.
Interestingly, when we look at the cross tabs on race, the Hispanic community came in with 66.9% support while Caucasians with 67.6% support. Also, when we look at the age breakdown, we find the strongest support among those between the ages of millennials (68.8%).
