Top Six Gun-Related Bills Being Discussed by Florida Legislature

The Florida Legislature has been busy writing up bills willy-nilly these past few weeks, all in an effort to make the Sunshine State not so ridiculous in the eyes of the rest of the nation.

And while there are some important things to discuss -- like the legalization of weed, for example -- legislators are also tackling the ol' Florida tradition of gun laws.

Is there a bill out there that wants to let teachers get their Dirty Harry on and pack hand cannons while at school? Will another bill pass that will give us more George Zimmermans?

It's all a bit confusing. But no worries. The Pulp is here to give you the rundown on the top six gun bills that our lawmakers are discussing in Tallahassee, in easy-to-follow layman's terms!
