Not only has Florida now issued over 1.95 million permits since October 1, 1987
, but as of the March 31 of this year there were 801,219 active permit holders. Since January 1, 2008, only 4 permit holders have had their permits revoked for a firearms violation ("utilized" is very broad here, including such things as accidentally carrying a gun into a gun-free zone). That comes to an annual revocation rate of about 0.0002%. That is two ten-thousandths of one percent. How much smaller could that revocation rate be?
