Florida Approved CHL Without Background Checks

Florida approved concealed licenses without background checks

Wonder if they will go back and check those with licenses issued during that period and revoke a lot of them?

The article does say that some of those passed through were later checked. Of course it doesn’t mention how many of those checked were revoked.

The other article mentioned has considerably more detail,

Wonder what that employee was doing for over a year? Well, we know what they were not doing.

They are revoking hundreds, probably more.

Probably revoking hundreds that would have passed the background check had the employee performed it. Are they refunding the money? FL licenses are expensive.

Amazing that Florida passes some new restrictive gun laws, many of which are ridiculous such as their school marshal program, 3 day waits, and yet they are not capable of even doing the basics of a background check.

On the other hand, maybe someone was promoting constitutional carry.

A mailroom manager in the Florida Department of Agriculture was assigned the task in addition to the regular duties of managing the mailroom. It sounds like the whole system is a big mess. They don’t have a dedicated department for it. The whole process sounds like it’s add on duties to employees of the Florida Department of Agriculture (who is assigned the role of administering the CHL licensing process).

I wonder what percentage of Texas applications fail for non-criminal reasons. There are, or have been, clear process issues in Florida that allowed this lack of a proper check to occur. It seems like a simple checklist before issuance would catch a lack of confirmation.
