WyattÂ offers his opinion to the Mayor on blaming the Â the city’s problems on guns. Nutter’s noting that many Florida permits are going to high crime areas does not surprise me. Philadelphia routinely uses the “character or reputation” clause to deny people improperly. You can appeal, but that goes to a Board stocked with the Mayor’s cronies, and they always uphold denials. You can appeal a denial to the Court of Common Pleas, but you have to hire a lawyer to do that, and a Florida license is a lot cheaper than a lawyer.
This Florida issue wouldn’t be an issue if Philadelphia issued LTCs under the same standards employed in the rest of the state.
