Florida approved thousands of concealed weapons permits without background checks

There are 2 comments on the The Daily Republic story from Jun 9, 2018, titled Florida approved thousands of concealed weapons permits without background checks. In it, The Daily Republic reports that:

For more than a year, the state of Florida did not conduct national background checks on tens of thousands of applications for concealed weapons permits. A previously unreported Office of Inspector General investigation found that in February 2016 the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services stopped using a FBI crime database called the National Instant Criminal Background Check System to ensure that applicants who want to carry guns do not have disqualifying histories in other states.

They end up anywhere with or without memory of denial of firearm rights. Guns should be outside of the scope that any agent or policeman could use.

Good for Florida. Wish I lived there. Illinois practically takes your first born before they honor your 2nd Amendment rights.
