Recent Experience With Florida CWP? Login/Join

I have heard rumors -- repeat: RUMORS -- that Florida Secretary of Agriculture Nikki Fried (D) has caused CWP initial and / or renewal processing to slow way down, in many cases exceeding the statutory time limits.

These are rumors; I find it hard to believe that a) Governor DeSantis is permitting this, and b) that there is no stink being raised that would have reaped some publicity.

Have any of our Florida members had recent (in calendar year 2021) experience?

Yeah, that (no-wait) was the experience that my wife and I had for renewal in the Orlando office, but that was before Nikki Fried.

A friend who generally knows what he is talking about (FFL holder), told me that his son's paperwork has been on hold for way over the 90 day time, the son is being told "tough shit," and he claims that this is the current trend.

However, I would have expected the NRA and / or our Governor to raise a public stink if this is at all widespread, that's why I'm asking for recent experience.

Section 120.60, Florida Statutes limits State agencies to 90 days to render a decision (issue or deny) on a complete application, and 30 days to request additional information if it isn't complete. If no decision is made in 90 days, the license is technically issued by default. There are no allowances granted to agencies for going beyond 120, F.S. timeframes due to staffing shortages, high volumes of applications, etc. unless you, the applicant, grant one. If it's been more than 90 days, I would declare that your application should be deemed complete and request issuance by default in writing.

MI has a provision for this. Going by memory, if you turn in your renewal packet and paymen by the appropriate time (60-90 days prior?), the receipt and old license are good until the new permit arrives.

I still keep my FL non-res permit current. I got it after Gov Doyle vetoed the WI bill twice.

I look at it as a money maker for FL. It’s an easy $125 or so for non-residents, no liability for the State.

My Florida permit lapsed because my local police Department wasn't doing fingerprints forever with covid. They're back to doing them and I just sent in a new application for my Fla permit, the website says they're running 50-55 days.

Nikki Fried suspends 22 gun licenses of Floridians involved in Capitol riot

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news...itol-riot/ar-AAMDov0


TALLAHASSEE, FL (WCTV) - Tuesday, Florida AG Commissioner Nikki Fried and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Licensing announced the suspension of 22 gun licenses held by Floridians involved in the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

“The deeply disturbing events that occurred at our nation’s Capitol on January 6th were sedition, treason, and domestic terrorism – and those individuals involved in the insurrection must be held accountable for attempting to subvert our democratic process,” said Commissioner Fried in the press release. “Since charges began being filed, we are using our lawful authority to immediately suspend the licenses of 22 individuals involved in the storming of the U.S. Capitol. This is an ongoing effort, and as charges and sentences continue in the wake of this despicable attack, we will further suspend and revoke any additional licenses granted to insurrectionists.”


Pursuant to Section 790.0601, Florida Statutes, FDACS can neither confirm nor deny whether an individual has ever applied for or received a concealed weapon or firearm license, as this information is exempt from disclosure as a public record.

I am a new member, this is my first post. I wouldn’t put too much stock in that rumor. I had let my permit lapse because we moved out of Florida. We moved back recently and I had to start over from scratch. That said, from the day I applied online I checked three days later and CCW had been approved. This was two weeks ago.
