Your Wednesday Morning Florida Report

St. Cloud, FL –-( Last Wednesday, Jonathan Carpenter of Osceola County, Florida was sitting at home when a mail carrier knocked on his front door.

The postal carrier had Carpenter signed for a certified letter from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Carpenter signed for it, but he was confused because he was not expecting anything from the state. He quickly opened it and was floored.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services was notifying him that they have suspended his concealed handgun permit.

“On or about August 12th, 2019 in Osceola County, Florida, an injunction was entered restraining you from acts of domestic violence or acts of repeat violations,” the notice read.

The letter shocked Carpenter, who has never had a run-in with the law.

    Sounds like how the IRS’ operates; “Guilty until one proves their innocence”.

    This is exactly how “Red Flags” work. Any gun owner is vulnerable to TPTB just because someone else “says” they are. It could be a “crazy bitch” ex-girlfriend, someone they were promoted over at work, a neighbor that doesn’t like the way they cut their yard, etc. All it takes to start this nightmare of a process going would be for one person to call the GESTAPO. Then, an innocent owner gets to “go through” the process described in the article at their expense and in the end the innocent gun owner “might” get their guns back.

    We have too many laws on the books as it is. We do not need anything else “muddying up the waters”.

      ERPOs are such an egregious affront to the Constitution that I am surprised that a judge, any judge has not stepped up to put an end right here and now this this idiocy. These red flag ‘laws’ are how you get a shooting war.

      Connecticut has such a law. I read this morning on Big League Politics that so far, they have used it over 1200 times, often based on anonymous phone tips. When the cops show up at your home, they don’t just take your guns. They arrest you and put you in jail until your arraignment hearing, which could be weeks.

      No proof required.

        sounds like something ripe for weaponizing. only when the other side feels the pain will they have any interest in changing it.

        a few days before an election, red flag every democrat. be sure to also inform the media, so they can show up and film the spectacle.

    Reminds me of a friend who, after starting a new job, was told by HR that he was terminated for lying on his application about not having an arrest record. He ended up having to hire a lawyer and threaten to sue the company because of an OBVIOUS case of mistaken identity. It seems that the person they mistook him with was almost 30 years older, 150 or so heavier and was black! The company eventually backed down.

Play nice.
