    3rd degree felony punishment????

    A friend of mine sometimes forgets and carries in a post office (in FL). This would be a third degree felony. For a person with no priors...not even a speeding ticket...what is the "consequence" for this blunder in the state of FL. (The gun is locked in the glove compartment of the car.) (He has a CCW license.)

    Would one be arrested? Time in prison? Fine?

    I'm confused by your post. Does your friend carry into the post office or does the friend lock the weapon in the glove compartment in the parking lot of the post office? Or are you asking about both situations?
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Regardless, it's up to a judge.

    I haven't researched it, but I'd venture to say that "officer discretion" would play the largest part--at least initially, or, at street-level.

    So are you saying the gun can't be in the glove box on federal land? I agree the gun should not go into the post office.

    You mean you agree with the law or you personally wouldnt want a gun in the PO because you feel there should be limits on where we can carry?

    Around here, for a felony, the FINE before you even get convicted, is $10,000-$25,000 (For someone to represent you).

    Then the state might tack something on top of that.

    If you are lucky, you could get away a cop who is having an exceptional day, or maybe just paying that law-dog.

    I think we should be allowed to carry in a post office. Never can tell where evil will strike :-(

    How does someone "forget"???? If your "friend" has these issues of forgetting the law...and/or ignoring the law...sounds to me like he is an accident waiting to happen and shouldn't be carrying in the first place. And then, when he breaks the law (by "forgetting")...EITHER someone gets hurt and/or more fodder for the anti's.

    And you are more worried about what he might get???? Wow.

    It is a fact that Post Offices have been known to become violent places. The term, going postal, is grounded in many tragedies.

    However, until it is changed, the law is not in our favor.

    Well the issue is not what FL does for a third degree felony, it is what the FEDs will do. Crimes on federal reservations, installations, what have you are tried in FEDERAL courts. What is the US Attorney like there? What are the federal judges like in that district? They might take a plea bargain, but it wouldn't surprise me a bit for him to get ten years and $10,000 plus the bill from his lawyer.

    I don't carry in the post office and anybody that forgets they have a gun concealed on their person when entering a place they know is off limits is mentally challenged to put it lightly

    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!
