My name is Spencer, a rising senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. Just months after surviving the worst day of my life, I was stunned to learn that the Florida agency responsible for granting concealed weapon permits didn’t do background checks for over a year.

The reason: the staff couldn’t figure out how to log into the background check system.

The man running the agency, Florida Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam, claims that *only* a few hundred concealed carry permits fell into the wrong hands.

I’m calling BS. I’ve started this petition, and I need your support.

Florida is the only state in the U.S. that allows an agency completely unrelated to law enforcement to issue weapons permits. In 2002, the NRA lobby was successful in getting the weapons permit process transferred to an agency with an official elected statewide.

That official, Adam Putnam, actually called himself a “Proud NRA Sellout”. During his almost eight years in office, he’s made it a priority to speed up concealed weapon permits. We just learned that his agency failed to do its job. And now he’s running for governor to lead the entire state of Florida.

I think his failures on an issue as critical as this should lead to his resignation and a quick exit from the Florida governor’s race.

If you agree with me, please sign and share my petition. Tell Adam Putnam his inability to prioritize citizens’ safety over the NRA is an indication that he’s not suited to be the next Florida governor.
