Proposals to allow the open carry of firearms and possession of guns on public university campuses failed in the Florida legislature, but supporters say they'll be back. Now Leon sheriff's candidates are weighing on on whether open carry and campus carry should be laws.

Local elections are gearing up and Thursday the Downtown Tallahassee Business Association hosted a debate for the four men vying to be sheriff. Among the topics, crime, homelessness, and ongoing concerns about the county’s emergency dispatch agency.
