 Gunshine State Tops A Million Packers

Officials in Florida expected that the total number of Sunshine State concealed carry permit holders would exceed one million by the end of 2012.
Doubling since 2007, the number of concealed weapons license holders will top 5 percent of Florida’s 19.1 million residents in a state that is number one nationally in licenses issued, the News Service of Florida reported.  Florida has been licensing concealed weapons since 1987, when state officials took over authority from counties that had a patchwork of requirements regarding who could carry and what was needed to qualify for a license.
Clearly it is a popular law and has been taken advantage of by a large number of Floridians who have acted responsibly, said Adam Putnam, commissioner of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the agency which oversees the state¹s concealed carry program.
Floridians who are obtaining these licenses are obtaining them for the right reason and are using them in an appropriate way.

At least one million...far too many forget to re-register...and not one criminal act committed. Except for forgetting to re-register.

Does your state have at least 5% of it's male population ready to step in when necessary to stop the slaughter?

If not, then get a CCW and convince your friends to as well. I know that a lot of people don't like asking for a permission slip to exercise a Constitutional right, but we have to continue showing the anti's that we're more law abiding than the average bear.
