Legislation making it easier for Floridians to get their guns back from law enforcement is heading to the House floor. The measure also stops law enforcement from taking a gun during a domestic violence call if there’s no arrest.

There’s now another option for local residents to apply for a concealed weapons permit. A branch of the Walton County Tax Collector’s office is the latest to participate in a new partnership with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to speed up the process.
