Florida Alert! Florida Threatened with Lawsuit over Nikki Fried's Cancellation of CW Applications

Nikki Fried, Florida's anti-gun Commissioner of Agriculture clearly violated Florida law and pretended to have authority she is specifically denied by statute [f.s.790.06(15)].  She knew it. She was even formally asked  to stop it by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody.  Imagine the waste of State tax dollars if Nikki Fried's conduct results in a lawsuit against the State when the Attorney General is already on record warning Fried against such actions.

Young Americans for Liberty president Cliff Maloney is pursuing litigation against a Florida official for thwarting his ability to obtain a firearm amid social distancing restrictions in response to coronavirus. 

Mr. Maloney sent a letter on Wednesday to Florida Department of Agricultural and Consumer Services commissioner Nikki Fried threatening litigation because of the commissioner’s decision to suspend online applications for concealed weapons licenses amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

While Ms. Fried, Florida Democrat, closed off online applications for concealed carry licenses, she was scheduled to appear in an online town hall with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden on Wednesday evening. 

Ms. Fried was listed as moderator of a discussion with Mr. Biden during the virtual rally on Wednesday, according to Mr. Biden’s campaign website which has since removed the webpage. Mr. Maloney’s letter was sent to Ms. Fried when she was moderating the discussion, according to Mr. Maloney. 

“It’s truly sad to see Nikki Fried exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to further her anti-Second Amendment agenda,” said Mr. Maloney. “She can host an online fundraiser for Joe Biden, but she can’t accept online applications for concealed weapons licenses? Commissioner Fried needs to stop infringing on the constitutional right of Floridians to protect themselves and their families.”....READ MORE
