Florida Ag. Commissioner Nikki Fried Suspends Concealed Weapons Permits For 22 Capitol Protesters

Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried (D) on Tuesday announced she was suspending the concealed weapons permits of 22 Floridians charged in connection with the Jan 6 Capitol protest.

"I just suspended the concealed weapons permits of 22 people involved in the insurrection against the United States of America instigated by Donald Trump on January 6, 2021," Fried announced on Twitter.

"The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services' Division of Licensing oversees the state's concealed carry licensing program and has the ability to suspend a permit if an individual is charged with a felony or other disqualifying offense," The Hill reports.

"The division can revoke a license if a verdict disqualifies an individual from carrying a concealed weapon, Fried's office said."

Fried is the only Democratic statewide elected official and the first statewide Jewish female elected in Florida.

She's currently running for Florida governor on the platform that she's entitled to it.

"A white male should never tell a female to 'wait their turn,' " Fried said Monday on Twitter. "We have waited over 100 years. Time for women to lead."

Florida Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R) reacted to Fried's gun grabbing announcement by calling for her to "immediately be subpoenaed and investigated for this unlawful and politically motivated action."

"Although the House can only impeach for misdemeanors, we should immediately pass a law to strip her of all power."

Governor Ron DeSantis appears to be too busy arranging sanctions against Ben & Jerry's for slighting Israel to respond.
