His name is on every gas pump throughout the state of Florida.
He is a friend to all of Florida’s fury critters.
He loves oranges, and champions all of Florida’s agriculture and marine communities.
While he is not the most interesting man in the world, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam (R), who is running for governor of Florida, is the most interesting redhead politician in Florida.
What many individuals don’t know, Putnam signs off on all of the Concealed Weapons Licences (CWL) that are issued to Floridians.
According to Putnam, Florida is #1 in the nation with active CWL’s.
During a speech he gave to Repulican Organization (SWBRO) meeting run by Jay Narang, Putnam joked that Florida’s CWL national status could be credited to President Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder’s past efforts to thwart 2nd Amendment rights.
Putnam told the Shark Tank that he also believes that 46-year low crime rate in Florida is a direct result of the increase in CWL applications.
I think that there is correlation. Compare that to Chicago’s gun laws and their crime rate, or Washington D.C.’s and their crime rate. or what DiBlasio is doing to unwind all of what Giuliani did and their gun laws and their crime rate.”
In addition, Putnam also credits law enforcement for adding to the decrease in crime in Florida.
