Gun Advocates Sue Florida Authorities, Allege Waiting Period Abuses

A group called Florida Carry filed a lawsuit Monday against the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), alleging the agency is slow-walking gun background checks.

The gun-rights group is accusing the FDLE of delaying some gun pre-purchase backgroundchecks, which state law requires be performed within 24 “working hours” (defined in the lawas the hours between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.), or three days, beginning March 2018.

Some applicants have been forced to wait for up to seven months, according to Eric Friday, the group’s attorney, in an interview with Fox35.

“Somehow FDLE has gotten the idea that that three-day background requirement no longer applies to them, and that they can just ignore it and ignore it indefinitely with no time limit,” he said.
