Florida to Have the Most Concealed Weapons Permits in the U.S.

Hey good news, everybody! In only a matter of days, Florida will officially be number one in the most people with concealed weapons permits in the country!

According to Florida's Secretary of Agriculture Adam Putnam -- who seemed so proud of the milestone, he thought it would be neat to hold a press conference to share the great news with the whole wide world -- someone, somewhere in Florida will be the one-millionth person to get themselves a concealed weapons license.

"I'm asked about our licensing requirements more than any other topic," Putnam said.

One million people in Florida with concealed weapons?
