Florida Gubernatorial hopeful Adam Putnam is the guy whose signature is on my Florida carry license. Mr. Putnam posted this photo on his Twitter account late last week. He tagged it, “My kind of place.” Indeed. Putnam has shown himself to be strongly pro-gun throughout his campaign for Governor.
While the 2018 race continues to heat up, Putnam’s post gained the attention of the mainstream media. The Orlando Weekly commented on it.
Imagine you’re a fully-armed Adam Putnam, Florida’s current Agriculture Commissioner and a strong contender for governor, where do you go out to eat? Well, for starters you tell your staff to take you to a place where you can pack heat and simultaneously eat meat.
Yesterday, Putnam, who isn’t shy about clearing the way for open carry in Florida, posted a photo to Instagram of a sign reading “You pack the heat, we cook the meat,” with the caption “My kind of place.”
As good “journalists,” they sought out a comment from another contender.
Other Florida gubernatorial candidates, like Gwen Graham, don’t seem to share his enthusiasm.
Imagine how great our universities could be if politicians spent as much time talking about student achievement as they do arming students.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, also weighed in Putnam’s open carry stance, stating that he has shown he’s clearly on the side of the NRA.
The 2012 election showed that the people of Florida side more with the NRA than anti-gun rights candidates like Hillary Clinton, Tom Perez, Keith Ellison and others.
Sometimes the truth hurts.
