    Thumbs up Almost 2 million and counting!

    The latest numbers reported by the State of Florida as of February 28, 2019 show Florida has issued 1,971,345 concealed weapons permits! Should go over 2 million pretty quickly.

    This is almost twice the number issued by the 2nd place state, Texas despite Texas having about 9,000,000 higher population.

    All I can say is that both Florida and Texas are keeping good company!

    Proud to be one of those 1,971,345 concealed weapons permit ( actually in FL, it is a license not a permit) holders

    I'm proud to be one of the roughly 2.19 million adult Kansans that can carry a concealed gun without permission of the government.

    ILLInois has about a quarter million CCW permit holders and 1.4 million FOID permits issued.

    Yep, that's a good thing! It's a very good thing if you don't ever plan on traveling out of Kansas.

    Okay, so then you first have to have the state's permission to buy or own the gun, and then you have to have the state's permission to carry it. Have I got that right?

    Florida doesn't have any kind of foid card.

    I fear that we have hit the high point of our constitutional freedom here in ILLinois. With the Communists that we have in total control of the state it won't be long until the laws become more draconian.

    FOID sounds an awful lot like "void". I think that's what they think of gun owners.
