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 connection 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.
