FYI: For you holders of Florida CWFLs, the exemption from public release of the list of license holders is expiring on 10/2/2011.

I'd recommend that you get in contact with your representatives and encourage them to extend or make permanent the exemption.

That is of course unless you want to see your name in the Orlando Sentinel on 10/3/2011 :rolleyes:


790.0601 Public records exemption for concealed weapons.

I of the State Constitution. This exemption applies to such information held by the division before, on, or after the effective date of this section.
(2) Information made confidential and exempt by this section shall be disclosed:
(a) With the express written consent of the applicant or licensee or his or her legally authorized representative.

Where the hell is Marion Hammer on this? Christ there is no way that this can be fixed during this legislative session. The only hope is if Rick Scott calls a special session of the legislature and I doubt that will happen

I don't have a CWP yet, but this is bullshit of the highest order. I know those ****sticks at Sun Sentinel and Miami Herald will print the list on the first page in the biggest font size they can. :mad:

I e-mailed the Governor at www.flgov.com/contact-gov-scott/email-the-governor/ I was brief and to the point, and asked what he could do to prevent the release of our info. I am also getting the word out to my friends.

Looks like there is legislation on the floor to address the issue:

Thank you for contacting Governor Rick Scott regarding the Open Government Sunset Review Act (OGSR). The Governor appreciates your sharing your support for Senate Bill 604 and House Bill 7161, relating to OGSR/Concealed Weapons or Firearms, currently before the Legislature.
