    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
  2. Sent an email. If that's true, I am very upset. I already pay enough in state tax, especially because I own an S Corp registered in the state of Florida, to pay for other social services. The money I sent to the Dept of Agriculture should be used for no other purpose than the issuing of CWP's.:steamed:
     

  3. E-mail sent to Gov Crist
     
  4. Nice going DJEGATORS. Wife and sent the good governor our e-mail earleir today. If he wants our vote for the US Senate seat, he better do the lawful thing and veto this horse crap move by the democrat contolled legislature.

    So if its a violation of the law to not issue my perment with in 90 days what can I do ? Call a lawyer ? It will be 90 day in two days and I was told 2 days ago that my aplication hasnt even been reviewed.
     
  7. Steve, what will probably happen is you will recieve a letter within the 90 day window stating your application has been recieved but not processed. Average time for the permits is over 120 days right now.

    As far as hiring a lawyer, you could but it would be more cost to you and would not speed the process any. You will eventually get it and just be thankful it lasts for 7 years now. I feel your pain.
     
  8. Its true, one of the hardest things to do is force the govt to abide by its own rules.
     
  9. Email sent....Thanks for looking out.
     
  10. I feel special:

    what are you talking about? I suppose next you are going to call me a troll. I am simply making the statement because a lot of you think it is enough to just send your money to the NRA and then sit on your butt and not make phone calls to your reps.

    That wouldnt be you would it? Because you actually take action right?
     
  16. Here is the lengthly letter I recieved from my state rep.

    Thank you for your recent email regarding the issue of funding for the processing of concealed weapons permits. I appreciate your interest in this issue.

    First, let me be clear that this funding transfer was not a “sneak attack” on gun owners as some have termed it. This proposal was first proposed by Governor Crist on February 20th of this year, nearly three months ago. Nor did it single out gun owners, as the Governor suggested transferring funds from numerous areas of the budget. In the final budget over $588 million was transferred.

    Second, let me assure you that even with the transfer having taken place, the state has dedicated more dollars than ever before- over $18 million next year- towards processing concealed weapons permits. This sum is an increase of over 40% from next year’s start-up budget for processing concealed weapons permits. None of the transfer will impact the concealed weapons permit licensing program, and if the program for some reason needs more resources than the current $18 million appropriation, then requests for additional funding will be considered and appropriated if needed.

    While I understand that the fact that certain dollars might be transferred within the state budget can be disheartening, please be aware that no one group was singled out for transfer. Facing a $6 billion dollar deficit, many funds were transferred in order to fund the core missions of state government- education, health care and public safety. I am committed to making sure that each dollar entrusted to the state- whether in a trust fund or the general fund- is used responsibly and that the taxpayers of Florida are protected.

    The Working Capital Fund that you spoke of in your email is currently the General Revenue Fund, which also serves as the savings account used to pay the state’s obligations in the face of a budget shortfall. As I mentioned above, this year the state faced a deficit of $6 billion dollars. While we have been able to fill that shortfall, if the state should continue to realize revenues below estimates, the savings in our working capital will be vital to ensuring the ability to fund our children’s schools, keep hospitals open and to continue to ensure public safety.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    You would have to look hard to find someone more supportive of Floridians’ Second Amendment Rights than House Republicans. We have been stalwart supporters of gun owners’ rights and the rights of Floridians to defend themselves and their families. Our support for you and your rights remains strong.

    Thank you again for sharing your thoughts on this important issue. If I can be of assistance to you in the future, please do not hesitate to contact my office.<o:p></o:p>

  17. Hello fellow Florida GLOCKers! Good news, Crist did the right thing, and vetoed the trust fund raid. Please email him with gratitude. It is as important, maybe even more important for the politicians to hear from us when they do good as when they do bad. Nice!



     
  18. There is no doubt in my mind that the NRA and its supporters played a role in convincing Crist to veto this.
     
  19. I am pleased that Gov. Crist exercised Line Item Veto to stop the transfer of dollars from the CCW Trust Fund.

    I will be more pleased if the Division of Licensing is allowed to hire enough staff to end the backlog of applications that currently exists.

    I would be even more pleased if Florida would follow the legislative model of Vermont and Alaska to allow law abiding persons to lawfully carry concealed firearms and weapons without paying a "defacto tax" on the exercise of Constitutionally protected (not granted) rights.

    It amazes me that Marion Hammer can, with a straight face, claim that the transfer of funds would have constituted a "defacto tax on gunowners" without mentioning that the money comes from the fees paid to the State of Florida to receive a license to carry concealed weapons/firearms. How is that not a "defacto tax"?!?
     
  20. Just heard Governor Christ did veto the measure we and the NRA asked him to do. Thanks for getting the word out and letting the Governor know our feelings. Now I will seriously consider voting for Christ for US Senate.
