• Florida Expedites 82,000 Carry Licenses to Military Personnel After Chattanooga Terror Attack

    By AWR Hawkins

    The state of Florida has expedited 82,000 concealed carry licenses to military personnel in the two years since the heinous attack on unarmed members of USMC and the U.S. Navy.

    Florida responded to the attack by announcing an expedited concealed carry permitting process which allows military personnel to acquire a carry permit quicker–and at a younger age–than regular civilians. The issuance of the permits has been overseen by State Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

    The Chattanooga terror attack occurred July 16, 2015. The following day, Breitbart News reported that retired Marine Colonel Gary Anderson pointed to gun control as a problematic contributor; one that kept the victims from being able to shoot back in defense of themselves and their fellow military members. Florida’s response was to be sure more military personnel are carrying guns in more places.

      Too bad the US Military won't trust our troops with guns

      I am curious how the precipitating event and FL governmental response was in 2015, then again a news story in summer of 2016, and again now.


      Commissioner Putnam, I do not think that word means what you (or I) think it means.

      I read that since the clinton era you need approval from the commanding officer to have access to a fire arm outside of official military duties.
