In the Aug. 19 article Florida tops in concealed weapons, Politifact Florida rates as true Gov. Scott’s statement that Florida has “more concealed weapons than any other state.” But it doesn’t include the rest of the sentence, “because Floridians care about their right to bear arms.”
This is significant because the article goes on to note that several states, including Florida, allow out-of-state residents to acquire concealed- weapons permits. It says, “Weapons don’t distinguish by location” and notes that many states have reciprocal arrangements whereby a valid license in one state is valid in Florida.
