    Question about CC in FL

    First off forgive me it this is already posted. I searched but didn't find exactly what I was looking for.

    Can someone please clarify for me the law in regard of CC at home and your place of business.

    790.25
    3) LAWFUL USES.--The provisions of ss. 790.053 and 790.06 do not apply in the following instances, and, despite such sections, it is lawful for the following persons to own, possess, and lawfully use firearms and other weapons, ammunition, and supplies for lawful purposes: .....

    (n) A person possessing arms at his or her home or place of business;
    And..

    Unless you have a Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP) carrying a concealed firearm other than on your own property or the property of your business is a third degree felony in Florida punishable by up to five years imprisonment. [Florida Statute 790.01].

    I pretty much understand the law in regards to possession in a car but does this allow someone to carry at home and at work without a CCL? "Place of business" would that be work or do you have to own the business?

    I know that the easiest way to clear this up is to just get a CCL and that is in the works. I was just wondering about it for in the mean time. Thanks ahead of time...

    I'm not an attorney; but, in reading this, my take is, if your on your property, business or home, you can carry a gun without a license, if your legally permitted to own a gun under Federal and Sate Law.

    Supertac got it spot on.

    I disagree, you may be an employee and carry with the employer's permission...same as if you owned the business!

    Thank you for your help. I was thinking along the same lines but wanted to make sure.
