    I believe a lot of folks think you need a license to take advantage of certain state laws (in some states you do) when it comes to self-defense, etc. Also FL is pretty big on issuing permits to out of state residents. With the economy improving slowly, people have a little bit more money to spend.

    A quick calculation means that Florida made almost $6,000,000 during that timeframe.

    Start wearing galoshes, blood in the streets is the next logical outcome!!!! :whistling:

    On a serious note, the scary part is well meaning people without much training on the law can get in over their heads, which can lead to trouble, as recent events show. And that is truly tragic. But the exceptions don't disprove the rule, as they say.

    The article said they distributed 50,000 applications, not that they issued that many licenses.

    "...But the problem for the thousands applying is the Jacksonville office says it can only physically process about 35 permits a day....."
