Florida Has Expedited Carry Permits To Military Personnel

Since the terrorist attack on American troops in Chattanooga, Tenn., the state of Florida has been taking extra steps to make sure that our men and women in uniform are able to defend themselves.

Breitbart reports that shortly after the incident, Florida announced an expedited process to allow military members to attain concealed-carry permits on a shorter timeframe and at a younger age. The program, which is overseen by State Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, has issued 82,000 of the expedited permits over the past two years.

Commenting on the success of the program, Putnam stated, “This is just one example of what we do through our department to make Florida the most veteran- and military-friendly state in the nation.”
