Back in November, I wrote about my gun purchase denial and the process. Today it makes for day 24 since FDLE acknowledged getting my appeal request and wanting to have one more box under the tree, I made a call to the Purchase Program. It took 20 minutes of calls (no waiting on hold, you got disconnected) till I was able to speak with somebody. As usual with all the dealings I had with anything Florida Government customer service and gun related, the people was amazingly nice & polite. I was informed that my appeal was still being processed and that I would get my letter…eventually. No time-frame was given. Everything seems to indicate that what happened back around Thanksgiving has the department overflowing with denials and they cannot be happy.
I do hope they have fired the morons that were doing background checks and issuing denials just because it was easier than using their brains. In the meantime, this will do instead of a gift-wrapped box under the tree.
