TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - It is now legal for unpermitted gun owners to take their weapons with them while fleeing hurricanes.

That was among 44 bills Gov. Rick Scott signed Thursday.

Others include a measure that will keep the public from obtaining police body camera videos taken in people's homes, hotel rooms, and other places where there's an expectation of privacy.

Another measure will let craft distilleries sell more of their product. Right now Florida distillers can only sell two bottles of their products to customers each year. That will increase to four bottles or two of each brand if the distillery produces more than two products.

Scott also signed a bill that requires websites that sell commercial music and movies to post identification and contact information on their sites.
