This bill makes it clear that refusing to issue a policy, refusing to renew a policy,  canceling a policy, or charging unfair rates based on the lawful possession and ownership of firearms or ammunition constitutes unfair discrimination and is prohibited and actionable.

Further, the bill protects privacy rights by prohibiting insurance companies and their agents from disclosing information on firearms and firearm ownership of its applicants and policyholders to others.

The bill now goes to the Governor for his action.   

Please email Senator Tom Lee and Representative Matt Gaetz and tell them thank you for standing up gun owners.
