Florida Commissioner Sued for Closing CCW Online Application
Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried shut down the state’s application process last month “due to coronavirus precautions.” But President of Young Americans for Liberty Cliff Maloney argues in a new lawsuit that Fried has no legitimate reason to close the online form.
“It’s truly sad to see Nikki Fried exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to further her anti-Second Amendment agenda,” Maloney told The Washington Times. “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.”
