    CC ... college graduation...at a Civic Center?

    Usually schools are no-no... but what about a school ceremony at a civic center? I'll be reading my Florida Firearms book on the way in the car there (it's an hour drive and I'm not driving) but I was curious offhand. I'm not sure if the civic center is technically government property how CC works...

    Thats the statute section on where you cannot.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Not so fast there.

    I’ve been told by two deputy’s (at different times) and one state officer, that since it’s a (prom, graduation, dance) and it is taking place off campus, like at a hotel’s banquet hall, or civic center, not a school building, and it is optional for the kids to attend, then it is not an official school function on school grounds, therefore it is legal for a CCL holder to carry.

    The questions have come up because I volunteer from time to time, to help with security at some of these events.

    But then again, I’m not an attorney, and I would recommend you getting your attorney’s advice prior to doing such.
