    CCW in Florida State Parks

    Hey guys, I know Im a little late on this news (just because Ive never been to a State Park in Florida) but one just opened up very near to my house. I searched and found a few relavent threads, but it still wasnt crystal clear. The threads were back in 10/1/06 when the new law took effect. So my question is......is it in fact now legal to carry a concealed handgun with a liscense into a State Park? I want to say the answer is yes, but would like to hear it from some of you guys that have done it. Does the new law also apply to National Forests, like Ocala? Thank you!

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Are you refering to HB1029? Or is it in the Florida Statutes?


    I see Florida Statute 790.11 is still listed which prohibits the carry of a firearm in National Forests. So I assume HB1029 supercedes this. Im sorry for being so dense, I just dont understand all this legal stuff.

    Never mind, I just went to 2007 and 790.11 isnt there. I guess its because they passed HB1029. I still dont se any mention of concealed carry though. It says.... "which authorize the granting of a special permit for the carring of firearms in a national forest"

    Permitted carry is legal in Fl State Parks and the rangers know all about it. But the volunteers might not.

    +1 on that. The info that they hand out on check-in STILL says that guns are not allowed.
