Putnam expects surge in gun applications due to Obama’s actions

DCF 1.0 

Due to President Obama’s executive actions restricting gun rights, Florida will likely experience a surge in the number of applications for concealed weapon permits, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam said Tuesday.“Our right to bear arms is enshrined in our U.S. Constitution, yet President Obama has again circumvented Congress with this executive action, infringing on law-abiding Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

“In Florida, where our population has soared to 20 million and we have 1.4 million concealed weapon licenses, our crime rate is at a 44-year-low.

“Due to this overreaching executive action, we anticipate a surge in the number of applications for concealed weapon licenses in Florida, and we are preparing to meet this increased demand,” Putnam said.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services regulates and issues concealed weapon licenses.
There are 27 locations in Florida to apply for or renew a state concealed weapon license. Additional information regarding concealed weapon licenses can be found at FreshFromFlorida.com.
