That’s Why They Call it “The Gunshine State”…

Requests For Gun Permits Jump 67%


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida is seeing a huge increase in applications for concealed weapon permits. The state is on pace to handle 150,000 requests -- a 67 percent increase over 2008. The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services was so overwhelmed that Commissioner Charles Bronson petitioned the Legislature for 61 temporary employees, giving him 202 workers to wade through a spring backlog of 90,000 requests. That amount alone represents as many petitions as the state received in all of 2008. "We're still sitting on about 50,000 applications," Bronson said. "We're getting in about 14,000 or 15,000 a month, and whenever they get a good slug out, they're getting another 15,000 in." As of July 31, Florida had 607,977 concealed-weapon permit holders…

…"There are over 6 million gun owners in Florida -- people who care about freedom, who care about the 2nd Amendment, who are concerned about their ability to protect themselves," Hammer said.

Thugs please take note. As the economy worsens, more of your careers will be ending abruptly if you do not repent of your evil ways. Do it now before this is the last thing that you see, as you find yourself suffering from a terminal case of bust-a-cap-in-your-ass-itis.
