In general, I don't believe a municipality can (successfully) supercede state authority in criminal law of any kind, certainly not a felony. As I recall this was to squelch some stupid towns that attempted to re-regulate CWP validity and firearms laws. I don't think they would preempt anything unless there was a need since by default state is subordinate to Federal, county is subordinate to state, city to county and so forth.
    Correct, which is why local laws can be more restrictive unless - in this case - the State law is preemptive. As it is only preemptive for firearms (in Florida), local governments can make the law more restrictive for knives, but not less - and they do.

    The possession and use of these are two separate matters. Florida chapter 776 addresses this independent of the above.

    There are paradoxical consequences in 790 that are concerning. For example, the carrying of OC spray at a prohibited locations could be unlawful only for those with a CWFL, and lawful for those without. If interested in the specifics, let's make that another thread though.

    Florida does not have a concealed firearms permit; it has a Concealed Weapons and Firearms License - a CWFL, which covers both concealed weapons AND concealed firearms.

    What's the difference?

    Talk about splitting hairs.

    Correct. Although it is an or, not and - Weapon or Firearm. Interestingly though, Florida's Constitution does refer to it as a "permit". Specifically, a "concealed weapon permit."

    Now that's splitting hairs.
