    BTW - this isn't true. My husband's been trying to get his CCP for nearly a year. Because he was law enforcement in 2 other states and worked for the FBI, he has to produce evidence of his certification. So we called FDLE (the last agency that certified him) and got a copy of his paperwork. We submitted that to the state of TN to get his permit and they told him that he had to have his certification papers from POST.

    Well, in the state of Florida, POST is called FDLE. Same agency. They do the same thing - they certify deputies / troopers / police officers. But because it's a different name they have to have a conference with the big wigs to decide if they'll accept that.

    The man was an instructor at the FBI academy for pity sake. He was a member of the SWAT team in one of the largest departments in the state of Florida. And they're going to decide if they'll 'accept' his documentation?? He could teach the classes for crying out loud!

    So, no, it's not 'easy' to get a permit to have something that we were given a constitutional right to have in the first place.
    Never said anything about a permit! If your husband wants a gun, believe me, he can find one :)

    OK folks. I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread while we are all still being good to each other.

    Its obvious that we all have our own opinions on this .
    I want to thank you all for a civilized debate and I hope that you all understand that this thread is being locked because it is off topic.

    Thank You to all who participated in this discussion!!!
