Need advice in Florida - gifting a handgun in Florida
I am in need of a little advice from some forum members in Florida. Here in Pennsylvania a parent may gift a handgun to their child of legal age without the normally required transfer.
(c) Duty of other persons.--Any person who is not a licensed
importer, manufacturer or dealer and who desires to sell or
transfer a firearm to another unlicensed person shall do so only
upon the place of business of a licensed importer, manufacturer,
dealer or county sheriff's office, the latter of whom shall
follow the procedure set forth in this section as if he were the
seller of the firearm. The provisions of this section shall not
apply to transfers between spouses or to transfers between a
parent and child or to transfers between grandparent and
This was taken from the Pennsylvania Statute of CRIMES AND OFFENSES TITLE 18 Sec 6111.27.
My question is, does Florida law provide for a similar situation?
I have researched this and have not found the answer on my own. Perhaps the laws in Florida just do not specify such a transfer as legal therefore it would be illegal. Any help would be appreciated.
