Newspaper Service of Florida:

A divided Florida Supreme Court said Thursday it will not reconsider a March ruling that upheld a longstanding state ban on people openly carrying firearms in public.

Dale Norman, who challenged the constitutionality of the law after being arrested in 2012 in St. Lucie County for openly carrying a gun in a holster, requested reconsideration of the Supreme Court’s March 2 ruling. But the court, by a 4-2 margin, rejected the request Thursday.
As is common with such orders, the court did not explain its reasoning. The majority was made up of Chief Justice Jorge Labarga and justices Barbara Pariente, R. Fred Lewis and Peggy Quince — the same majority that upheld the law last month. Dissenting Thursday and last month were justices Charles Canady and Ricky Polston.
