100,000 Veterans and Active-Duty Military

I believe the men and women who serve and have served our country in uniform deserve all the support and protection we can provide.

In the wake of a terrorist attack against military personnel in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in the summer of 2015, I moved to expedite concealed weapon license applications for Florida's active duty military and honorably discharged veterans. 

I believed then, and still believe now, that we have a duty to help protect those who protect us.

This week, I announced that 100,000 service members and veterans have benefited from this fast-track service.

Florida should be the most military and veteran-friendly state in the country, and I'm proud that we have expedited so many concealed weapon licenses for our active military and veterans.
