By next Wednesday, the state of Florida anticipates it will have issued 1 million concealed weapon permits.
Reuters reports, ‚ÄúThe number of active concealed weapons licenses in Florida, already home to more owners of such registered weapons than any other U.S. state, is expected to reach the 1 million mark next week, a state official said on Wednesday.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúFloridians who are obtaining these licenses are obtaining them for the right reason and are using them in an appropriate way. Applications for the permits in the state of 19.1 million people have doubled since 2007. Only 0.3 percent of the more than 2 million total permits issued since 1987 have been revoked‚ÄĚ, said Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.
Former National Rifle Association President Marion Hammer attributes the higher than average gun sales to the Obama administration imposing tougher gun laws, and impeding on the rights of American people to own firearms.
In a recent quote on the subject of increased permits, she said:
‚ÄúThe number of gun owners is up and crime is down,‚ÄĚ Hammer said. ‚ÄúCriminals commit crimes, but they aren‚Äôt stupid. They don‚Äôt want to get shot.‚ÄĚ
