STATEMENT: Gillum Slams Putnam for Gun Safety Failure

ORLANDO, Fla. — Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum released the following statement today after a report said the Florida Department of Agriculture failed to conduct background checks on concealed carry permit holders:

“Adam Putnam’s rhetoric on guns has been dangerous — but this is far worse. His department’s failure to conduct background checks is a dereliction of Putnam’s duties, and he should consider whether he is able to continue running for Governor or serving as Commissioner of Agriculture.”
