Can you believe that 2024 is almost here? With that being said this article will give you “5 Florida laws that go into effect January 1st, 2024.” It’s Florida so you may think these new laws are going to be bizarre but they’re honestly not that bad.

Controversial Law That Went Into Effect In 2023

House Bill 543 went into effect on July 1st  and it has caused a lot of controversy. This bill states that a person who wishes to carry a concealed weapon or firearm can do so without obtaining and maintaining a concealed weapon or concealed firearm license.

Even though you no longer need a permit, I still recommend that everyone take the class. Taking the class has made me a responsible gun owner, I learned about gun safety and the proper protocols of when to use it. If you want to own a gun but have never used one, do yourself a favor and take the class! While there are people against this law, others think that this law going to effect is one of the best things to happen in our state.

What law do you want to get passed in Florida?

I think I already know what you’re going to say. Most of us do want recreational marijuana passed in Florida. I thought this law would be passed before the permit-less carry but I guess not. Do you think it will ever pass? I think we can expect to see it on the ballot in the 2024 elections. Feel free to email me [email protected].

I also wish there was a law where the rent prices in Florida could be capped. It seems like rent goes up every year and our places are not being upgraded. If you’re going to keep raising the rent, at least upgrade the fridge, television, washer, etc.

Below are 5 new Florida laws that will go into effect January 1st, 2024! Be safe and Happy Holidays.
