Not only has Florida now issued over 1.95 million permits since October 1, 1987, but as of the March 31 of this year, there were 801,219 active permit holders.

Since Jan. 1, 2008, only four permit holders have had their permits revoked for a firearms violation ("utilized" is very broad here, including such things as accidentally carrying a gun into a gun-free zone).

That comes to an annual revocation rate of about 0.0002 percent. That is two ten-thousandths of 1 percent. How much smaller could that revocation rate be?
