In an overview of the whole out-of-state concealed carry permit thing (H.R.822), Bloomberg scribe John Crewdson applies for—and receives—a Florida license to carry. It’s a scandal! “Florida, which granted my permit after I viewed a half- hour, online safety video, now says it made a mistake. ‘Unfortunately, our office made an error in completing your application,’ wrote Sterling Ivey, a spokesman for the state licensing division in an e-mail response after I asked why somebody with no handgun experience got a permit. While Florida law doesn’t set a minimum number of hours for safety training or specify what the training must include, it does require trainers to keep documentation that applicants “have been observed safely handling and discharging the firearm,” Ivey wrote. There was no such documentation in my case. Uh, yes there was: Crewdson’s signature. The Ft. Myers Gun Rights Examiner takes him to task . . .

Before the application could be approved however, Mr. Crewdson had to answer “YES” to question 6, which asks, “Have you received training with a firearm as required by Section 790.06(2)(h), Florida Statutes, relating to competency with a firearm?” He also was required to have his signature notarized affirming that he had been furnished a copy of Chapter 790, Florida Statutes, relating to weapons and firearms, and that he was knowledgeable of the provisions contained therein.

Chapter 790.06, Florida Statutes clearly states that completion of any firearms safety or training courses available to the general public by a law enforcement organization shall be attested to by an instructor who must maintain records certifying that he or she observed the student safely handle and discharge the firearm.

Mr. Crewdson, in his own article admits, “There was no such documentation in my case”, and therefore knowingly and willfully lied on his application in response to question 6.

The notarization statement on the application declares, “THIS APPLICATION IS EXECUTED UNDER OATH. FALSIFICATION OR MISREPRESENTATION OF ANY PART OR ANY DOCUMENT SUBJECTS THE APPLICANT TO CRIMINAL PROSECUTION UNDER SECTION 837.06, FLORIDA STATUTES.”

By signing his application and having his signature notarized, Mr. Crewdson swore and affirmed that “the information contained in this application and all attached documents is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.”

Oops.

      • File criminal charges…. This wasn’t an inadvertence, this was an outright preconceived intent to commit perjury by an anti-gun zealot that deserves to be brought to justice and it will probably come out that the true gestapo of NYC was behind this entire plan to commit perjury……
        So to the AG of Florida (she’s a Democon) please do your duty or to any person in Florida that can afford it, please file a “writ of mandamus” forcing the AG to do her job….

  1. I hope that Mr. Crewdson enjoys commuting back and forth to Florida for the criminal proceedings. He can think of the frequent flyer miles he’ll be accumulating while he gets his affairs in order prior to his incarceration! (One can only hope).

  2. This is Bloomberg SOP. He has been illegal buying guns through straw purchaser for years. In 2007 DOJ issued a cease and desist order. When the One Won he went right back to it.

  3. Typical of the Left.
    The 2 A. RKBA must be severly restricted, if tolerated at all. But 1 A. freedom of speech and press can be extended to justify perjury, if it’s “in a good cause”, such as curtailment of rights they don’t approve of.

  4. File criminal charges…. This wasn’t an inadvertence, this was an outright preconceived intent to commit perjury by an anti-gun zealot that deserves to be brought to justice and it will probably come out that the true gestapo of NYC was behind this entire plan to commit perjury……
