With ‘human errors’ this big, all the background checks and gun laws in the world won’t matter a damn.
This is FLORIDA. Somebody notify David Hogg that there’s a glaring omission in the changes he’s pushing for.
To borrow a phrase from Jesus, the gun grabber policy is straining out gnats but swallowing a camel. (That’s a bad thing, in case you’re wondering.)
Florida revoked concealed weapons permits for nearly 300 people who got them after the state failed to do national background checks for more than a year.
Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam acknowledged that the state revoked the permits in a statement issued Friday evening.
The state failed to check applications against a national database set up by federal authorities. The lapse was revealed in an inspector general’s report sent to Putnam in 2017.
Putnam blamed the lapse on a negligent and “deceitful” employee. He said a total of 365 applications were reviewed after the problem was discovered. Ultimately, permits were revoked for 291 people.
Putnam is running for governor and has pushed to make it easier for people to get a concealed weapons permit. His office oversees the concealed weapons licensing program.

If all the checks and balances are in place, and they are STILL not made use of, what’s the point of anything more intrusive?
Unless the real goal is to chip away at gun rights more generally.
And that is looking more and more like it’s been their real goal all along.

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
What makes America so different from other nations? Other nations are built around regimes or systems. But America was built from on ideas. From a blank slate.
Built on ideas that are DANGEROUS to tyrants.
That we have God-Given Rights, like Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Dangerous ideas. Like this one: the people, when threatened, have a God-Given right to stand up in defiance of any government that dares threaten any of those rights.
There’s a men’s version…
And a women’s version, too…
Because in America, the bros AND the ladies BOTH have a rich history of badass rowdiness.
