    Is anyone familiar with Florida Carry Law?

    I was listening to a radio show out of Florida last night and one of the guys on the show said that he doesn't have a Florida permit, but can carry his gun. He said that other circumstances allow him to carry without a permit. As far as I know he is not LEO. I do know that he is a resident of Florida. Asside from him having another State's License, how would this be possible?

    He can carry on his own property without a permit, or in a vehicle.

    Or, if he lives out of state and has a resident permit from that state. Florida does not recognize any out of state non-resident permit.

    Retired LEO, perhaps?

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

    I do know that he is a former Marine, I don't think he is retired LEO.

    Retired MP maybe?

    Or, perhaps he really cannot lawfully carry in Florida and doesn't realize it (i.e. has a non-resident permit from another state)?

    I'm with Matt on this one. I can't recall any exceptions that would allow concealed carry.

    Maybe he believes in the 2nd Ammendment and has blind faith that others will as well. Good luck to him.

    I had thought that FL at one time prohibited carrying in a church. However, I cannot find that prohibition now.
    I assume, then, that church carry is legal in FL unless the church prohibits it.
    Is that correct?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    If you live in Florida and have firearms you should definitely give "Florida Firearms -- Law, Use & Ownership" by Jon Gutmacher a read, regardless if you carry. Here's the link to where he sells his book on his site: http://www.floridafirearmslaw.com/mm...Ownership-Book
    He normally has a table at the Orlando Gun Shows where he sells them at a cheaper price vs. his website.

    I'm not sure what circumstance the guy on the show has, but if he isn't LEO/retired or has his permit CC is prohibited in public. Unless he thinks a 2nd degree felony(IIRC) is appealing to him for illegall concealed carry, if he should get caught.

    Jerry,

    It is like any other business in terms of FL law on carry.
    Unless they tell you to leave, you are good to go.
    If you refuse to leave, could be a misdemeanor trespassing.

    Ditto on Gutmacher's book. He's also an attorney that specialized in firearms law. I keep his card in my wallet.....just in case.

    Hi miklcolt45,

    Thanks for the reply. It is good to know when I visit there. I always check the state site before I travel.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Jerry,

    You probably know this, but make sure that your own state's CWL has reciprocity with FL. Then check out FL's laws on where you CAN'T carry.

    Slight correction - if they ask you to leave, and you don't, and you are carrying, you could be charged with Armed Trespassing, which is a felony.

    Thanks, I do have a NR FL CHL. I sure had thought that 10 years ago church carry was not legal, but now I know. FL was the first CHL I got, and have kept it due to the large number of states which honor it.
    That was a great advantage when we were RVing around the country.

    My state, NM, has improved over the last year, and we hope to expand the reciprocal agreements more.

    Thanks again,
    Jerry
