    That is great news! Reading some of the different reports, we still have a fight since there are some lawsuits planned to challenge the new law but the law will come into effect in July and I am still confident that we will be victorious in the end.
    To live outside the law you must be honest.

  5. I think it only applys to CCW people.

    Yes, the new law will only apply to CCW holders. I think that this was a compromise to get the votes to pass it in the House and the Senate.

    I am curious how they are planning to enforce the CCW part of the law. By Florida statute, the CCW holder's information is not available to the public and not subject to requests from the media and only law enforcement has access to this information and only in the process of investigation of specific offenses. I wonder if businesses wil try to get their employees to register that they possess a CCW and are therefore allowed to have a weapon int their car? This should be interesting as the law goes into effect.

    When I read the first article in the paper, it was reported that 5000 Florida residents had concealed carry permits. After the GOV signed the legislation, the 5000 figure was changed to 500,000. With such a disparity in the two figures, I'd kind of like a third report, and not knowing which of these numbers is the closest thing to being accurate, I'd take the average of the 3! :i:
    I know a man by the name of Mel;
    he can't see but he sure do smell.

  8. Its closer to 500,000 lots of us.

    Yep there are a lot of us! And more every month. From 2007 to 2008 we had 59,948 new permits issued and 13,616 renewed.
