Information on your Concealed Weapons Permit Orlando
For those of us that watch the news on a daily basis, I am sure you are just as disturbed as I am at the level of violence that is so prevalent in the Orlando, Florida area. It is difficult to go one day without seeing at least one news story involving a shooting or violent death in the Greater Orlando area. And even more recently law enforcement officers being targeted in ambush attacks with firearms.
What does this say? Law Enforcement officials are not always around when they are needed, and although this statement is difficult for me to admit, being a career law enforcement officer, it reins true. Orlando appears to be becoming more violent, and with the budget constraints, law enforcement agencies are trying to do more with less. It also says to me, that as law abiding citizens, we sometimes have to accept the responsibility for our own safety and that of our families.
One way that we can do this is by exercising our Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms.
To exercise this right, we must follow the law, and that requires us to obtain a State issued Concealed Weapons Permit. The State of Florida is a “Shall Issue” state as it relates to Concealed Weapons Permits. Which means, as long as you meet the criteria established under Florida State Statute Chapter 790, you will be issued a Concealed Weapons Permit.
One of the first steps to obtaining your permit, is to receive the proper education regarding the safe handling and discharge of firearms. TANGO FIREARMS ACADEMY, LLC, can provide the statute required training to obtain your Concealed Weapons Permit. This training includes the safe handling and discharge of firearms, the rules on where and when you can carry a concealed firearm, and discussions on the Stand Your Ground Law, as well as live fire exercises on the range.
As of January 2015, there are approximately 1.4 million active Concealed Weapons Permits in the State of Florida, as reported by http://legallyarmed.com/ccw_statistics.htm. As reported in December 2014, Orange County, Florida, or more specific Orlando Metropolitan area, there are over 60,000 concealed weapons permits, and in Seminole County there are almost 24,000 Concealed Weapons Permits. The United States Census Bureau reported the 2013 population estimates for Orange County, Florida was greater than 1.2 million, and for Seminole County, Florida was just under 500,000.
Now, without doing the math, which I really hate, and even with the reported numbers of permits, and populations being a little dated, the percentages are low for citizens prepared to protect themselves and their families by having a Florida Concealed Weapons Permits in the Greater Orlando area.
Now admittedly, the Orlando area is not the only metropolitan area were violent crime is ever increasing, but this is the area that TANGO FIREARMS ACADEMY, LLC can provide you with the training and education required by the State of Florida to acquire your Concealed Weapons Permit.
