Gun owners losing 'Fla. loophole' can't conceal anger

The loophole allowed state residents who didn't have a permit from their own county or whose permit was denied or revoked to obtain one from Florida through the mail. Pennsylvania police had to honor the permits because of a reciprocity agreement.

Others have tried to get Philadelphia permits but were rejected by the Philadelphia Gun Permit Unit, which can deny permits based on "character or reputation" alone. Oliver said that some of his students who had no criminal convictions were denied permits anyway.
