According to the latest reports from the lovely, sunny state of Florida, the number of active concealed weapon permits has just exceeded 2.5 million for the first time. That’s over 20 percent of the Sunshine State’s adult (18 y/o+) population.
All this despite Commissioner Nicole “Nikki” Fried doing just about everything she can to slow walk and deny permits where possible. Between the high number of active CCWs — the most of any state in the country — and the large number of firearm manufacturers, perhaps this is why we like to call Florida not the Sunshine State but the Gunshine State.
From my seat I’d say this seems like an okay start. Gotta pump those numbers up.
