Pursuant to Florida's Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

All data, statistics, or reports from the year 2015 regarding incidents involving firearms, including but not limited to:

Any and all policies, procedures, directives, memorandums, and any other guiding materials regarding matters pertaining to firearm acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, including, but not limited to, the following:
• policies and procedures on the issuance of firearms permits and licenses. (Please note that this point is not a request for the identities of individual permit or license holders, but, rather, is a request for governmental policies and parameters regarding the process and regulations by which one may obtain either a permit or a license. If separate strictures exist for each, provision of both would be greatly appreciated.)
• policies and procedures on the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• any and all available policies and procedures regarding local firearms policies. Please provide all such materials that alter or supplement departmental procedures.
• policies and procedures regarding the sale and purchase of firearms. Please include all materials regarding the appropriate qualifications for the sale or purchase of firearms. Please include materials for particular venues, if available, including but not limited to the sale and purchase of firearms at gun shows.
• policies and procedures regarding the transfer, either out-of-state or between individuals, of firearms.
Please include all available segregable data.

• the issuance of firearms permits and licenses.
• the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• the sale and purchase of firearms.
• the transfer, either out-of-state or between individuals, of firearms.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Please limit your search to all records from the year 2015.

I was advised You will need to contact the State of Florida for the Information you are requesting, the State of Florida handles this, it is not done by the individual counties.

The Florida Dept of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Licensing issues the firearm permits and licenses and I think they handle all the other, but if not, then they should be able to tell you who you would need to contact for everything else. It might be the Florida Dept of Law Enforcement. But, I would say start with the Florida Dept of Agriculture. The phone number to contact them is 850-245-5691.

The Florida Dept of Law Enforcement is who you may need to contact though, for the statistics and any other data you are requesting regarding the – firearm-related homicides and firearm-related assaults for each county in Florida. Some counties in Florida may have a program set up on their computer to be able to pull the stats for their particular county, but, we do not have that capability at this time.

The phone number to contact the Florida Dept of Law Enforcement is 850-410-7000.

If you have any questions you can call us at 850-482-9624.

Hope this helps you,
