I would suggest doing research or maybe networking/contacting Florida's great Marion Hammer. She was a former NRA president & is well connected with Florida politics/elected officials.
Her group & her direct efforts-hard work did a lot of + things for armed citizens & license holders in Florida.
Florida residents by law have 90 days to get concealed licenses, records are not open source or available to the general public or media, concealed licenses are now valid for 7 years not 5, and gun owners/W license holders can not be sued or have civil actions if they are cleared by the Florida States Atty in a lethal force event.
VA has the exile laws which with the NRA & ILA helped make felons with gun crimes do serious time. The laws made Richmond VA safer since the early 1990s.
