FL #1 in Concealed Guns


Florida has issued more concealed weapons permits than any other state, and it’s ready to hand out the one that will bring the total to 1 million, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Agriculture Secretary Adam Putnam made the announcement with a press conference, flanked by American flags.

"I've been asked about our licensing responsibilities as much as any other topic," Putnam told the Times.

It's gotten a lot easier to get a gun in Florida under Putnam -- about one month, instead of the 12 week delay before he took office.
