Florida Nightclub Attack Spurs Run On Carry Permits

posted on July 20, 2016

A report in Tuesday’s Orlando Sentinel reveals that applications for Florida concealed-carry permits have skyrocketed since the terrorist attack on an Orlando nightclub in early June.

According to the Sentinel, “In May, the Florida Department of Agriculture distributed more than 20,000 applications to people interested in a concealed weapon permit or other firearm license. That number jumped to more than 36,000 in June, according to recently released numbers.”

The number of permit applications distributed nearly doubling in a month is a good indication that many law-abiding Floridians aren’t buying the bill of goods being sold by anti-gun politicians that the best way to stop such attacks in the future is to pass more restrictive gun laws that will only be obeyed by law-abiding citizens.
