Florida – -(AmmoLand.com)- If you had a “Decision Pending” from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement that delayed a firearm purchase for more than three business days, you probably should.
Florida Carry sued FDLE for violating background check laws.

By law, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) must review the background of anyone purchasing a firearm “forthwith”. If FDLE has an incomplete but potentially disqualifying history in its records, Florida law requires that the department issue a “conditional nonapproval number” and gives FDLE 24 working hours (about three work days) to fix its incomplete records and issue either an approval or nonapproval number.
If FDLE fails to correct its incomplete records within 24 working hours, the law requires that the department issue a “conditional approval number” and continue its efforts to correct the incomplete data.
Since March of 2018 FDLE has refused to comply with the background check data correction time limits or issue the conditional nonapproval and conditional approval numbers that are required by state law. Instead, FDLE illegally started using a new “Decision Pending” status to indefinitely suspend the right to bear arms of tens of thousands of Floridians.Florida Carry filed a class action lawsuit against FDLE for these violations.
