Gaps and Guns

Florida purges voters from the voter rolls;
Florida tries to ensure prayer in public school;
Florida drug-tests welfare recipients;
Florida doesn’t screen applicants for gun-carry permits.

Florida wants to be gun-owner friendly,
but he gaps in the system must be fixed,
for the integrity of the system,
for the safety of the residents.

This is not a gun-control issue.
It’s a common sense issue.
It’s a public safety issue.
It’s a bureaucratic mess.

Streamline the system!
The gaps and loopholes
are simply too dangerous,
too dangerous to ignore.

As I’ve said before, there is always time and money for grandstanding, but never enough time or money to address serious issues, such as the state granting gun-carry permits to criminals and the mentally ill because they don’t do a complete background check .
