Gun group fires lawsuit at Nikki Fried over concealed permits

Agriculture Commissioner called Young Americans for Liberty ‘obscure right-wing fringe’

By Jacob Ogles

The gun-rights group Young Americans for Liberty sued Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried claiming she’s depriving Floridians’ rights. The suit aims to lift a suspension of online concealed weapons permit applications.

“Nikki Fried thinks that your right to self-defense is negotiable. She’s wrong,” said Cliff Maloney, YAL President. “This is a blatant disregard for the rule of law, and I will not idly sit by while Nikki Fried uses this crisis to enact her gun-grabbing agenda. I encourage all Americans to join this fight for our rights. We either believe in liberty in times of crisis or we do not believe in liberty at all.”

Fried has defended her move vigorously, repeatedly noting permits continue to be processed but the online mechanism cannot be used right now because of issues such as fingerprint collection during a pandemic.

“Commissioner Fried has not restricted processing of concealed weapons license applications; on the contrary, our department has processed more than 54,000 concealed weapons license applications since March 1, with an average review time of just 1 to 2 days,” said Franco Ripple, Fried’s Communications Director…

Pull Fried out of office for failing to do her job. Surely there is a mechanism in Florida to do so!

I still don’t get why Florida gave the Dept. of Agriculture the authority to be over firearms and the permitting of conceal and carry, seems to me that should be a dept. of justice via the highway patrol or state police, not some desk jockey AG director.

They are going to have hell with theAGRIC. DEPT doing CCW instead of a FL LE or DPS!

The Ag. Dept here handles things like Weights and Measures (Gas Pumps etc). They were a sort of catch all dept back when.

If the FDLE (cops dept) ran the show there would be even fewer concealed carriers in Fl.

I do not think that a Permit should be required as it violates the 2nd. Amendment! But I have one because I am going to carry! There are so many laws that we must NULLIFY! They don’;t enforce any of them and the NICS is not used to stop felons! It is used to screw with Regular Americans! Case in point! The NICS allowed a Saudi National to purchase a firearm which he then used to Kill Americans! Why? If we had went into a store with a Passport we could not have bought a Firearm! Because since we are… Read more »

@Roy, in Idaho, we have constitutional carry. Anyone, Resident or no, can carry (concealed if he or she so wishes), provided they are older than 18.

What this means is that if you want concealed carry training, you have to take the “enhanced” concealed carry course ($120). Some young college kids 🙂 can’t afford the class very well, but don’t want to carry without training.

I’m still on the fence with the whole conceal carry permit bs. Once you have asked for a “ permit “ ,you have now given up your “right “ to have a firearm.
I can’t seem to see it any other way. Too many libtards moving down here. I can’t vote this idiot out fast enough.

You are absolutely correct. However, at present, at least in mystate, they want $65 every five years, and a visit to the head honcho in my county. Ita dead easy, the renewal has always been in my hands in less than a week. With all the other attacks on our ability to exercise te RIGHT we have, this one is small spuds. I’m putting up wiht that one as a minor chuckhole in the road. The tide has turned against we who own guns, mainly due to an infestation of BloomieBux haivng lied to the people, who were too lazy… Read more »

No, its that it tries to keep unqualified people from carrying a defensive weapon. A person could do more harm than good if they aren’t trained in how to use a weapon defensively.

It does nothing of the sort. It only deters otherwise law abiding citizens from exercising their constitutional rights.

“The RIGHT of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” Those who disavow their oath to the nation, the people or the constitution are, by doing so, treasonous and tyrannical. There is a legal, legitimate penalty for treason and/or tyranny. If the American citizen is to have any hope in the system of government we live in, for peace and prosperity, these laws must be enforced by the courts. It must be done by the courts, in public for all to see. This starts with enforcement and goes all the way up the line to the… Read more »

Hopefully some of the recent Woodlock ruling in Mass can be used for this case.
