Charles Bronson is the guy in charge of Florida Department of Agriculture, the agency in that state responsible for issuing concealed weapons licenses. He apparently doesn’t appreciate the Daily New’s distortions that his agency hands out permits like candy to criminals in Pennsylvania. I don’t blame him. The reason that we have reciprocity with Florida, and the reason people like me have Florida licenses, is because it’s more widely recognized. The reason it’s more widely recognized is because its standards are more similar to other states, and more strict then Pennsylvania. This fact is seemingly lost on the Daily News. The only reason it may not be more strict than Philadelphia is because Philadelphia is routinely breaking the law when it comes to issuance of LTCs.
