    I was wondering that myself Statue 823.05 refers to Public Nuisances however because casinos are legal here in Florida to me it might be a gray area. I don't go to casinos but I am sure someone will know for sure. I am interested in case I ever do go to one.

    Be aware that some, if not all casinos are on Seminole Indian tribal lands and not on "Florida" property.

    PUBLIC NUISANCES

    View Entire Chapter




    823.05 Places and groups engaged in criminal gang-related activity declared a nuisance; may be abated and enjoined.—
    (1) Whoever shall erect, establish, continue, or maintain, own or lease any building, booth, tent or place which tends to annoy the community or injure the health of the community, or become manifestly injurious to the morals or manners of the people as described in s. 823.01, or any house or place of prostitution, assignation, lewdness or place or building where games of chance are engaged in violation of law or any place where any law of the state is violated, shall be deemed guilty of maintaining a nuisance, and the building, erection, place, tent or booth and the furniture, fixtures, and contents are declared a nuisance. All such places or persons shall be abated or enjoined as provided in ss. 60.05 and 60.06.


    (2)(a) As used in this subsection, the terms “criminal gang,” “criminal gang member,” “criminal gang associate,” and “criminal gang-related activity” have the same meanings as provided in s. 874.03.

    (b) A criminal gang, criminal gang member, or criminal gang associate who engages in the commission of criminal gang-related activity is a public nuisance. Any and all such persons shall be abated or enjoined as provided in ss. 60.05 and 60.06.

    (c) The use of a location on two or more occasions by a criminal gang, criminal gang members, or criminal gang associates for the purpose of engaging in criminal gang-related activity is a public nuisance. Such use of a location as a public nuisance shall be abated or enjoined as provided in ss. 60.05 and 60.06.

    (d) Nothing in this subsection shall prevent a local governing body from adopting and enforcing laws consistent with this chapter relating to criminal gangs and gang violence. Where local laws duplicate or supplement this chapter, this chapter shall be construed as providing alternative remedies and not as preempting the field.

    (e) The state, through the Department of Legal Affairs or any state attorney, or any of the state’s agencies, instrumentalities, subdivisions, or municipalities having jurisdiction over conduct in violation of a provision of this chapter may institute civil proceedings under this subsection. In any action brought under this subsection, the circuit court shall proceed as soon as practicable to the hearing and determination. Pending final determination, the circuit court may at any time enter such injunctions, prohibitions, or restraining orders, or take such actions, including the acceptance of satisfactory performance bonds, as the court may deem proper.

    When I went on the casino cruise in Cocoa Beach they had metal detectors and wanded each person as they went through. I couldn't even take my pocket knife.

    Now that I think of it they also have their own police force as least they do where I live with that being said, I myself would not attempt to carry.

    I live in Florida and frequent the Casinos. It is not illegal but as any place of business here can do, they can ban anyone they want from entering their establishment and will do so if they think you have a gun on you. If you get caught you will be asked to leave and if you do not comply you will be arrested for trespassing. Same as at Disney World and all the other places. The gun laws allow it but the trespassing laws allow a property owner to ban anyone for any reasons except on basis of civil rights like race and religion. Some take the tribal laws too far. Tribal lands are still part of the US and the State they reside in and although they have some leeway they cannot just decide that they will disregard all Federal and State laws and make up their own. :)

    The only thing I am able to find is on the Seminole Nation I couldn't find it by state. It says this....

    Carrying Concealed Weapons.
    A person who goes about in public places armed with a dangerous weapon concealed upon his or her person is guilty of a misdemeanor
    unless he or she has a permit to do so signed by a magistrate of the Court of Indian Offenses.

    Here in Jax we have poker rooms, they have "No Gun" signs on the doors. Since I don't want to get banned from my other vice I leave it in the car.

    That was my understanding. Was told otherwise and wanted a second opinion. Other then the Indian thing, federal buildings, and schools where else does federal law ban carry?

    The Seminole Hard Rock Casino here in Hollywood, Fl has signs saying firearms are prohibited.
