Default Florida is Number One!

As of sometime next week the state of Florida will reach one million active concealed weapons permits.

Over 200,000 of those permits are issued to seniors. Over 200,000 of those active permits are held by females.

One out of every 19 people in Florida has a concealed weapons permit, and the crime rate for those permit holders is 0.3%. Not too shabby people. Congratulate yourselves and keep up the good work.

I knew that was going to come up. I just knew it. Of course you have a very valid point, and a lot of past history to base it on. That just makes it worse.

One thing I forgot to put in the original post is that the numbers mean Florida leads the nation in active carry permits... assuming the numbers are correct.

I think Illinois should look at the positive points that Florida is showing. I had to mess with you about the counting.

Thanks. The most impressive thing to me is the crime rate among permit holders. You can arm a bunch of law abiding citizens and not turn it into the O-K Corral.

Are you kidding? I would have messed with me about the counting, but I quit talking to myself when they switched my meds. <grin>

A lot of states have followed some of our laws and methods on this. I think we have a pretty good model, but it could be better. It will come one day. Yesterdays announcement will certainly help.

Does that number include non-resident permits. Have to think many are out of state CCW holders.

I'm listening now to a local Florida talk radio station who has been discussing this news at length this morning. From the host to callers, nothing but 100% positive opinion on this. It's feels good knowing that this state recognizes law abiding responsible citizens right to defend themselves and others is a good thing that should be supported.

Also take into account the tourists carrying with permits from other states, such as myself when i visit my aunt, then the number of armed, law abiding citizens increases by a large amount and still very few criminals among them.
