Florida Gun Sales, Carry Permits On The Rise

posted on September 17, 2015

The number of Right-to-Carry permits issued in Florida is growing by about 20,000 a month, and has recently surpassed the 1.5 million mark. 

Permit applications lagged a little after 200,000 applications were issued in 2012. But record gun sales are again spurring an increase in permit applicants. According to News4Jax.com, in August, the Sunshine State processed more background checks for gun sales than in any August in more than a decade.

“It’s very steady and constant,” Talon Range owner J.D. Johnson told the radio station, describing the classes required to obtain a permit. “We’re running at full capacity, and probably if we offered more classes, we could probably fill more classes. We just don’t have the time to do it.”
