One Florida Employee Fails to Run Background Checks for Concealed Carry Permits

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A story of incompetence, something that is all too frequent in this day and age, leaves a person feeling quite disgusted by as well as distrustful of all of government.

The story can be read here.

However, the author of the report presents a dishonest assessment of what actually took place hoping to make some kind of connection between this person’s incompetence and the shootings at a nightclub and a high school.

From this report, it appears that once it was discovered what the employee had failed to do – run FBI background checks on applicants for concealed carry permits (365) – background checks on those applicants were immediately run using three databases to accomplish. In addition, there was no┬áconnection whatsoever between this failure and those prominent public displays of violence but the author evidently felt the need to spice up his report with emotional clap-trap probably in order to sell copy.

An example of irresponsible, emotional journalism.
