Florida: SPB 7026 – Keeping private the applications for Concealed Weapons Permit via Tax Collector.

OGSR/Concealed Carry License/Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services: Amending provisions relating to an exemption from public records requirements for personal identifying information of an individual who has applied for a license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm through a tax collector appointed by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to receive applications and fees; abrogating the scheduled repeal of the exemption, etc.

This one is one of those examples of little things that get missed initially. There was a time when your information was only exempt from the Sunshine Law if you had a CWP, but applications were not exempt. That was fixed, but I guess the language was not ample enough to be used with the applications via Tax Collectors since they belong to the Department of Revenue.

I see this as a good bill.

  1. I wonder if this is in response to the current Ag Commissioner appointing a known anti-gun advocate as head of the department that concealed permits are handled through.

    A lot of pro-gunners don’t understand that the Ag Commissar is the one who controls the carry permit program. Which is why the Dems worked ultrahard to get one of theirs elected. Republicans and pro-gunners really screwed the pooch on that one in 2018.
