  • Putnam: Background checks were done; my office didn't check them

The lapse, revealed in an internal report that was not widely known about until Friday, occurred during a time period when there was a significant surge in the number of people seeking permission to legally carry a concealed weapon. "Putnam's failure to fulfill the basic duties of his office raise serious questions about his ability to lead Florida". He also said that during the gap period the Department continued use of two other background check tools: the Florida Crime Information Center database and the National Crime Information Center database. But in March 2017 an investigation was triggered after a state employee noted that the state was not getting any correspondence from people whose applications had been rejected because of information gleaned from the national database.

Florida's Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz today told the Tampa Bay Times, "I was discouraged that Adam Putnam chose to throw his employees under the bus rather than taking some ownership over the fact that there wasn't adequate oversight and adequate redundancy over something that is so important to public safety", he said.

All applicants for a Florida concealed weapon license submit fingerprints that are checked against the Florida Crime Information Center database (FCIC), National Crime Information Center database (NCIC) and National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) for disqualifying offenses.

Putnam said there were about 350,000 applicants during that time, all of which were initially approved for concealed carry permits.

Of those, Putnam's office conducted a further review on 365 applicants and then revoked 291 of their concealed carry permits.

It was the responsibility of this employee to review the 365 applications that did not pass the NICS system and the Inspector General's investigation determined she failed to do her job.

As Commissioner of Agriculture, Adam expanded the state's concealed weapon license program so it is now the largest in the country.

"The former employee was both deceitful and negligent, and we immediately launched an investigation and implemented safeguards to ensure this never happens again", Putnam said in a statement.

Wilde was chastised as negligent in the inspector general's report.

A subordinate, Robin James, who "acted as Wilde's back-up", had similar problems, but Wilde "never asked James to check the NICS after the login issue", the report says Wilde told investigators under oath. She then claimed that when she was entrusted with the database in 2013, she was only a mailroom employee.

In 2012, he held a news conference to tout the state's one millionth concealed weapons permit, noting the time it took to process an application fell from 12 weeks to 35 days on his watch. The Department of Agriculture said she failed to do that review.
